"To survive we must evolve."
Reviewed in the United States on August 5, 2014
So, this is what passes for an "updated" version of little red riding hood. Hmmm. Well, there were a few cartoony wolves hopping around. And she did have red hair. But as far as the story goes............little red (Felicia Day) brings home her intended (Kavan Smith as Nathan, the poor unsuspecting sap), to meet her family of werewolf slayers. There's granny (Rosemary Dunsmore) and Red's two brothers, we're expected to believe they are all that stands between us and a raging horde of rebel werewolves led by the sassy geezer wolf Gabriel (Steven McHattie doing what McHattie always does, his villain de jour). The clash between these two groups goes as expected. The double ending is a bit arbitrary. That they thought to turn this into a TV series is more than a little puzzling. That they obviously rethought then abandoned the idea was probably the smartest thing they could have done. There's just nothing here to merit something on a continuing basis. As a pilot movie, it goes through the motions doing just what was expected and nothing else. As Red, Felicia Day doesn't inspire a sense of great strength or leadership qualities. At best, this project was just another run-of-the-mill, by the numbers, ordinary werewolf flick.
