Interesting I guess ...

A movie about yuppie werewolves ... hmm, sounds interesting. Kind of like American Psycho, but with lycanthropes. Yeah, that could work! And what a cool metaphor! Here we follow the story of a young man who travels to Wall Street in search of a job as a stockbroker, but due to his lack of experience can only get offered secretarial jobs. That is, until he meets a gorgeous girl in a bar who puts him in touch with the local "Wolf Brothers" branch. He quickly gets excepted into the 'pack', which is seemingly populated by your standard dashing, egocentric Wall Street types (who all appear to be closet homosexuals as well). And as it turns out, this business may be even more dangerous and bloodthirsty than people say ...

The script is pretty smart in places, and the performances are all quite good, particularly from Eric Roberts, the most famous and experienced member of the cast. It's a good play on the whole genre of movies like "The Firm" or "Boiler Room", with a werewolf twist. David DeCoteau has an interesting style of directing, which involves cutting and splicing moments from important scenes all over the movie, with a kind of hip soundtrack going on at the same time.

So what's wrong with it? Well, there's just one thing really -- it's not really a werewolf movie. Don't get me wrong, it has silver bullets and full moons and gruesome murders and everything. But where are the werewolves? Nowhere in sight, I'm afraid! It could have been a pretty cool werewolf movie, if they'd just bothered with some actual transformations. Bah, never mind.

As it stands, it's not a bad movie, but it's not a particularly good one either. You might give it a look if you get the chance, but you probably don't want to go out of your way.
