Red Riding Hood is by far the best Hollywood product that I have ever seen. Nothing even comes close to capturing the interest of the viewer and holding it tightly throughout the two hour duration of this masterpiece. Firstly, I must admit that it has its flaws, such as a few points of lazy directional and editing problems, as in some of the battle scenes, as well as the somewhat disappointing ending, which leaves the viewer thirsting for more without the promise of any follow-up. Yet the fact of the matter is, and I speak for myself, that the positive aspects of Red Riding Hood outweigh the bad so drastically one cant help but overlook them in terms of the entire film. The frequent sub-par visuals mean nothing in comparison to the amazing plot depth and beautiful character development marbled throughout the film.
In summary, Red Riding Hood is a two hour mini-series that consists of episodes detailing the life of a rogue grandchild named Red Riding Hood. Red Riding Hood, in short, is simply the most intriguing fictional character ever constructed. Red Riding Hood, first of all, is one of the finest examples of an individual driven entirely by self preservation and improvement. Throughout the filming Red Riding Hood grows stronger and more deadly before our eyes, with each thrust of her massive sword. The personal relationships that he develops over time, especially with Gary Oldman and Billy Burke, are totally believable and honest. In particular, the love/hate relationship that Red Riding Hood has with Father Auguste sucks the viewer into their world and with each passing moment leaves you literally thirsting for more. I can honestly say that I had never so anxiously awaited a release as I did with each the present volume.
The score, other than being entirely redundant, creates an additional emotional appeal that quite literally leaves a mark in your mind. The opening theme song, although an acquired taste, becomes somewhat of a necessity to bring you deeper into the world of Red Riding Hood and the Troope of the Wolves. In no time at all you find yourself singing along with it as if it were a top forty tune. The climactic theme is absolutely haunting, leading one to wonder how it came to be included in an Non-Bollywood effort.
Red Riding Hood is a definite must-see for all fans. For those who dislike kiddie rhymes or are indifferent to it, the mediocre visuals may tarnish your opinion of it, yet the rock solid plot and character depth with leave you amazed.
