Critic Reviews

  1. The result is a wacked kiddie Rashomon in which the different versions dovetail with a logic as impeccable as it is flat-out buggy. So who do we root for? Everyone and no one. Hoodwinked's most radical feature is that it's a ride without heroes.
  2. 75
    An enjoyably ironic rethink of a beloved fairy tale.
  3. Hoodwinked hasn't much time for soul or sentiment, but it is certainly amusingly smart and sassy.
  4. 67
    There's no getting around the fact that it all looks like a cutscene from a kiddie video game. It's a great showreel. Now someone give these folks a real budget so they can make a movie that looks as good as it sounds.
  5. Hoodwinked treats "Red Riding Hood" as a detective story we've never really understood until now, with nuttier motivations, more complex characters and a screwier climax.
  6. 63
    Zippily written and directed by the team of Cory Edwards, Todd Edwards and Tony Leech, Hoodwinked just wants the audience to have fun - something that's been in sparse supply in theaters of late.
  7. Hoodwinked may be a poor cousin to the Shrek franchise, but this made-on-the-cheap computer-animated feature still has more style and snarky gags than Disney's recent CG hit, "Chicken Little."
  8. 63
    When compared to today's visual standards for animated films, Hoodwinked is far below the curve.

    It ain't sensational, but "Hoodwinked!" is one wacky helluva interpretation of lil' Red Riding Hood and the gang.

    It's smart, with wit, a whole lot of humor, heart, mystery, and great action.

I think critics should give it more credit even if it doesn't hit the levels of Shrek which failed after two movies. I give this movie 78%. Full Review »

    For the love of god, stop comparing it to Shrek! Reaching the quality of Shrek isn't easy you know. It's like comparing "Monsters vs. Aliens"For the love of god, stop comparing it to Shrek! Reaching the quality of Shrek isn't easy you know. It's like comparing "Monsters vs. Aliens" to "Monsters inc". I enjoyed this movie overall. The animation isn't very good but the story is pretty solid and the characters are funny (especially the wolf). Watch it for what it is people! It's a good fun, flick. Full Review »
