The LA police department have a special team of officers with a talent for reducing big-time crime. The team leader has an excellent track record for crime reduction in other big cities, but his methods are unconventional, and so is he - he's a werewolf. Written by
Although made in 1993, the movie is typically 80ish. The special effects aren't that bad, but remind of say Lost Boys & other movies and the comparison is very unfavorable. That is your typical salad bowl movie: bada$$ honest cop loses patrol partner when sickos raid club...or so he thinks, because he's back the next day & performs like three vandamme 80's movies put together ( the action scenes aren't bad but they look like stand-ins & stunt-men a mile away ). Despite his new ability, soon the patrol mate commits suicide, and the bada$$ joins some undercover vigilante squad with mysterious powers... There is an attempt at virtuous camera angles and there is a salad bowl plot including some romance subplot & some cop-in-distress-going-through-divorce subplot...again trying to borrow here & there from more famous movies. Acting is lower average. mr.Garou isn't bad, although overacting is there. Peebles is just awful. Kensit is there just to show some skin and the others were probably just handpicked among the stand-ins. PS "le loup garou" is the french title of the Lon Chaney's "wolfman", so they give it away from the beginning.
What spoils the effort is the final battle, when Garou turns into some sort of giant wolf...clearly some idiot wearing a carnival outfit. To make a comparison, Godzilla versus King Kong was more believable!
Cheap cable TV fodder with some extra mileage.
