Directed by Catherine Hardwicke
Starring Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Virginia Madsen, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Julie Christie, Lukas Haas
Much like Chris Columbus was hired to duplicate the success of Harry Potter with Percy Jackson, now Hardwicke is trying to give us another Twilight. She succeeds too if you consider how staggeringly superficial and stupid this film is. The senior members of the cast (Oldman & Christie) try their best with the runny shit (aka the script) they are handed with but the younger stars don't even bother trying to act in their leading roles. Oh no no, their job is not to act but to just look good and flirt with each other as if that could be called character development. Red Riding Hood is basically shit wall to wall because it's origins are rotten to the core even before it starts. You know that the film was made with the intention of creating another shallow and cheesy teenage block buster franchise. It's all bullshit and literally the only good things are Oldman and Christie but even their presence isn't even nearly enough to lift this shit out of it's pretentious, greedy swamp.
Ja kaiken pyhän nimissä, karttakaa kiekon "making of" materiaaleja. Itse ainakin huomasin hapuilevani jotain painavaa jolla viskoa kohti telkkaria kun wannabe teini Hardwicke (55v!!) ilmestyi ruutuun ärsyttävän hei-kävin-juuri-ihanalla-sunnuntai-aamun-paskalla hymynsä kanssa ja kehui kuinka leffassa meno yltyy kuumaksi ja kosteaksi. Catherine, et ole enää teini. Lakkaa teeskentelemästä että olet ja lopeta epätoivoinen uuden nuoruuden eläminen näiden kakkapökäleiden kautta. Kiitos.
