This movie was really good! Finally the wolves got some more on screen action instead of all the vampire movies. I like them too, but I love the werewolf genre. I loved the different characters and I would really like to see more to them and learn about them. Please make a sequel about Cayden and Angel finding more wolves in the big city, from their bloodlines. More history, more action. New wolves. Maybe Cayden could be an alpha with his own pack? PLEASE!? Lucas Till played his role so good and Jason Momoa to! He was one big bad wolf! I really liked the wolf shape to. It was something you <more>
had not seen sins Teen Wolf with Michael Jay Fox. And I liked that, because it seemed more realistic then just a wolf on 4 legs. It was a wolf inside a man. A wolf man! Loved the movie - one of my favorites!
I am quite amazed and pleased how many positive reviews this movie got, cause it was quite poorly received by critics in general. But often what critics write and what audience write do not match at all. I will not judge neither, but I am 100% movies and life in general could be enjoyed much more by not living in the head too much. So I can enjoy and have tremendous fun by many movies that are simply destroyed by top critics and this is one of them. Actin is simple, even horrible at some instances, but still..fun ! Critics said movie took itself too seriously..nope, critics took movie too <more>
seriously, I did not, so it was huge fun for me most of the time ! Wild Joe character was soo cool, he should had much more acting time and do more fighting, he looked so badass ! But best role was for sure alfa wolf male, Connor - leader of savage pack, powerful and charismatic werewolf everybody feared with reason . Connor really is above all with his acting, still they made him little bit stupid looking, he have so much more potential which wasn't used by movie director at all ! I just knew Jason Momoa who played Connor Slaughter have so much more talent than it was used for movie, I just saw and felt huge power in him, for example I thought that his eyes were made so shinny for the movie, but he really do have so powerful eyes ! Today Momoa is known for playing Aquaman in DC EXtended Universe and he is currently on 4th place of popularity on popular movie site IMDb, yup he is top deal now and I just knew he have that potential, he is amazing !! Another thing, reviewers all the time mention this movie have low budget 18M , which is not low at all, you would me amazed how many Hollywood most popular and successful movies have lower budget than 10M, and movies with such budgets if they succeed bring most profit, cause they are made with couple milions and they bring profit of many milions, plus we are so spoiled nowadays, do you know first Alien was made for I think for no more than 2-3M, it was in 1980, but still, point is that if movie is well made, it can be amazing for less than 10m budget and it can suck totally for budgets beyond 50M$, yup that's the way it is ! One more thing, werewolfs in this movie looks just amazing, they are awesome !! Out
Hi, this is my review for David Hayter's Wolves movie.First I want to apologies for advance for any mistake you find; I am not an English speaker. Now, let's get to business, I'm doing this for the different kind of viewers, the curious people, the fans of the genre you know, vampires, wolves, Supernatural, Buffy, Anne Rice, kind of genre and the maybe negative/ skeptical people.By saying this is obviously I too am a fan of this series and books, so I know what people like to feel and watch when seen a movie that have supernatural beings. The movie is about a teenage boy who <more>
just discovered he is a werewolf, yes I know what are you thinking, more of Twilight crap, teenage lovers, perfect life, fall in love, etc. etc. but nope, because everything turns upside down as death and desolation came to the life of Lucas Till until a estrange character does a really weird talk to him and makes him go to and even weirder small town full of people that don't like the poor teenage werewolf and things get very interesting a cooler.The movie has a very easy to understand narration, with a nice speed, and doesn't exaggerate nor waste any time trying to explain the wolves transformation or the supernatural forces behind the werewolf experience, instead it makes the viewer enjoy the experience of being a lupine, the speed, the force, enhance abilities which is something no many movies even bother to do and just portrait it as something tragic or negative as a course, whether is a vampire or wolf is practically the same result.So you get the teenage that by the way is pretty much mature and wiser kind of boy, who is forced to do this transition of boy to man/wolf to defend himself and the people he loves, and also balance his personal life with all the scenarios that a teenage may live, and yes that include sex, very ferocious, aggressive and hairy sex.About the actors and their rolls, all of them make an perfect believable non stereotypic characters which I personally enjoy very much, Lucas Till was excellent, not only did make maybe the best teenage werewolf of any movie but David Hayter's work as a director was really make me want to see more of his work for future projects, Jasom Mamoa was a force to be feared most of the time, he really pushed the other characters and made them fear him Merritt Patterson and Stephen McHattie played a great complement and pretty much all of them make a mayor roll that is like a big circle that creates a very intelligent narration with a very welcome twist at the near end.This movie has a lot of lovely moments, great characters, with very interesting backgrounds that actually make me wanted to know more about them, the story is a very good and enjoyable adventure, that opens the path to a second movie and maybe a TV series which I think know is be the perfect moment, even a prequel with Mamoa character past would be great.I think this is one of David Hayter finest works, which really put him in the level of great movie directors; I am really waiting for his next move.
Well all i have to say for all you "werewolf" fans out there is it's the best werewolf movie i've seen sin "the beat with in" and that as a movie it's campy, cheesy as all hell and it's like the Teen Wolf the new series humped "the Wolfman", all in all it was fun, not one time did i think this scene is too long or this movie is too long, it new it wasn't a "A" grade movie and it didn't try to be, and it did it's job it entertained me for that 90 min if ant thing i thought the ending was a bit rushed. All in all must see i <more>
suggest getting it by all means if you're a Wolf fan, if wolfs aren't your thing try Dracula Untold while trying not to hit Dracula with the rottenest of tomatoes :>
This was a genuinely pleasant surprise. (by rpaleschi)
I got this movie thinking it was going to be a cheap werewolf version of twilight but gave it a go as the other reviews were pretty positive. Have to say I was really impressed. The special effects were excellent and not CGI'd, which is a nice change.The action is kept at a good pace and although the story has been played out in a 1000 other movies I still found myself getting quite into it.As someone with a limited attention span this movie passed my mobile phone test and I didn't check eBay or Facebook once, which I have done with a few recent werewolf releases.As a werewolf fan <more>
I've had a couple of favourites lately Wer and Late Phases and this was up there with them.This movie isn't going to win any Oscars but it's an easy and enjoyable watch with really good monsters.
This serendipity makes a great family movie! (by powell-yendi)
I thought this was going to be another corny werewolf movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. As a movie buff, I think I have seen it all, so very few movies have unpredictable events. However, this movie caught me unawares, because there were many interesting plot twists that I did not see coming. Every guess that I made was wrong. All but the ending was predictable. I loved the cast and their performances. My only qualm was that 2 or 3 characters were introduced in early scenes, then they vanished without any valid explanations. The lack of follow-ups made it seem a little rushed. I would <more>
recommend this as a family movie. Adults can enjoy the drama and kids who are 11+ can enjoy the action and costumes. As stated in the title,this movie was an unexpected but useful find. 8.2/10
I honestly don't know why some people have responded so negatively towards this film. Perhaps they did not watch more than the first twenty or so minutes. It takes Wolves time to get off the ground and the segue into the story is not managed all that well, giving the initial impression of a clumsy B movie. If however, you persist you will be rewarded. Wolves improves as a the story progresses. The story itself is predicable horror fare but its competently done and very enjoyable. The acting is solid too, and includes some capable Canadian actors you may be familiar with, such as Stephen <more>
McHattie, of Pontypool fame. My advice ignore the negative nellies and give Wolves a go. You wont be disappointed. Eight out of ten from me.
Loved it! Howling Fans will Love this. (by rajivness)
This is a lighthearted Werewolf movie similar to Howling Reborn - where the protagonist is trying to piece together the enigma surrounding his life.Plot: Guy gets drawn to an off-the-road type town which is inhabited by werewolves and where there is a hostility between feral wild werewolves and domestic werewolves - who never really change into the beast. Its a story of Young Lion vs Old Lion and where you end up liking the villain at the very end.Eye effects are nice. very similar to HBO's True Blood, MTV's Teen Wolf and Underworld Series.This is also a guy-gets girl movie - which <more>
is always nice. In a way this is sort of like Twilight - the werewolf part. Though the wolves looks much less cartoony.This is one of the more entertaining werewolf movies I've seen recently.Rent it. You'll like it. 8/10.
