  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. 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.
  3. 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."
  4. 50
    Like an early Woody Allen film or a classic Marx brothers feature, more of Hoodwinked's gags flop than hit, but they come at such a steady rate, you hardly notice.
  5. 40
    Sluggishly paced and stiffly animated, Hoodwinked pulls out all the stops to keep its attention-deficient audience occupied, but the snowboarding, skiing, hang-gliding, and kung fu sequences will still be a lot more fun in the Hoodwinked video game.
  6. The film's voice talent is good, as are the characterizations. However, the film's computer animation leaves much to be desired.
  7. Hoodwinked is a computer-animated, "Shrek"-style satire of "Little Red Riding Hood" that offers a few laughs but overall is pretty tired.

This is an attitude that's common amongst the blogging trash that review video games, it has no place with the movie going critic. It's just bad critiquing. It's like saying that every film that's been created with substandard equipment is bad.

    Hoodwinked is a lovely movie. I recommend it, unless you're possessed of an intellect so small you need the shiniest shinies to keep your miniscule attention-span and empty mind stimulated.

Looks pretty awesome to me, especially compared to some of the kids cartoons out today. The movie has some incredibly laugh out loud scenes as well. I think the success at the box office and rental store says it all. Expand

This movie had great voice acting and every scene was hilarious with its 'behind-the-scenes' look at Red Riding Hood. So many great lines, so many funny characters, and a little twist at the end that will leave you shaking your head and saying 'I should have seen that coming...' Expand

    Ok it may not be the best animated movie ever, but it is def worth a watch. The animation itself was a little lacking but it was still a step Ok it may not be the best animated movie ever, but it is def worth a watch. The animation itself was a little lacking but it was still a step forward, not back. You just need to sit back and enjoy this movie and put your mind into a younger mind set. Too bad some of you have grown up Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I do admit that the movie does have abysmal animation on the wood-cutter character and just... NO!!! And there are some really embarrassing moments in the movie in which... spoiler alert. No seriously, spoiler alert. Granny is doing extreme sports to a rap song... urgh. BUUUUUUT there are some genuinely funny moments in the film with the character dialogue and with the squirrel's fixation on coffee during the movies ending scenes. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. All in all, this movie was nothing special. There were a couple funny parts in it, but the thing that dragged it down the most is the animation itself. It is so rough it distracts you from the movie itself. For example, when Red was in the cable car filled with dynamite and she got herself loose, there was a moment when she turned around to face the camera. It looked super cheesy. It was almost as if she was on a moving pedestal that rotated her around in a glitchy mess instead of her moving her feet. Expand

    Wow, this movie is terrible. It seems tired, old, very used and drawn out. I was hoping for something as clever as many of the other animated Wow, this movie is terrible. It seems tired, old, very used and drawn out. I was hoping for something as clever as many of the other animated movie that have come out in the past several years, however, this does not come close. This movie isn't even enjoyable for little children, makes little sense. The only good part about this movie is it was very short, otherwise I would've walked out. Expand
