Wolves: Review

Wolves_Poster_3 Large










The coming-of-age story of Cayden Richards. Forced to hit the road after the murder of his parents, Cayden wanders, lost, without purpose… Until he meets a certifiable lunatic named Wild Joe, who sets him on a path to the ominous town of Lupine Ridge, to hunt down the truths of his history. But in the end, who’s really hunting whom?

I initially heard about this film a few years ago and was instantly intrigued because (I’m not going to lie) it was going to be the directorial debut of, the voice behind Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, David Hayter. As the film starts it’s pretty dark in tone right off the bat and gets right to the point rather quickly which is good. The film is filled with action from beginning to end and doesn’t let up at all. The best way that I could describe this film would be Twilight with gore. Not because of the story in general but the film has the same feel to it as far as it being about fantasy creatures. Hayter does a great job at creating tense and suspenseful moments all while keeping the action going. The werewolf effects looked awesome for the simple fact that they took the “practical” approach instead of going completely CG. There are CG moments but nothing too extravagant where it would make the creatures look silly. I would’ve never thought to have Lucas Till lead a film such as this but he did extremely well. It’s crazy because this kid looks like a teen yet when he speaks he has the tone of voice that just completely commands a scene. Jason Mamoa already looks crazily intimidating and you add that to his character in this film and this guy is unstoppable. He has this demeanor (and they show this in the film) where he can enter a room and just stop everyone in their tracks which makes for a fantastic powerhouse villain. After watching the film I quickly felt like it has everything needed to become a franchise. There’s plenty of action, there are horror elements and a great cast that makes it a really fun film to watch so this is definitely one that you don’t want to miss.
