R-Pattz tries his luck at seducing an older woman...

Water for Elephants review

If you’ve seen the poster for this lush, big-top-set melodrama – R-Pattz embracing Reese Witherspoon as Christoph Waltz eyeballs menacingly from the shadows – you’ve all but seen the film.

Pattinson’s orphaned vet student joins the circus and bonds with star performer Witherspoon over their mutual affection for animals, to the consternation of her ringmaster hubby (Waltz), who’s more the use-and-abuse type.

Nothing challenging here, but it’s a pleasantly diverting romance with Pattinson proving himself a capable lead sans fangs.

Blu-ray stomps DVD with three times the features.
