Watch "The Wave" 1981 to see a better version of this film
17 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1985, my senior year English Lit. teacher, Fred Sharkey told me the premise for a movie that he was writing called Jack Boot (what would eventually be released as Wolfpack). Fred was doing some film work "Americanizing" the scripts of animations that were being produced in then Yugoslavia and this was a pretty big break for him. After spending a few minutes telling me about the plot, I told him flat out, it was the same premise as a 1981 film I had seen on ABC called "The Wave" (it's listed on IMDb). Without reading his script, I went on to tell him the plot of "The Wave" and the impact it had on me in 1981. This didn't go well with Mr. Sharkey, but I give him credit, he asked me to audition for the film anyway. After the film was shot, I got a hold of a VHS that had the rough edits of the film and I was sorely disappointed, but I tried to give the film the benefit of the doubt since I hadn't seen the full, cut version. Eventually, I would buy it online on DVD and my first impression still goes: if you want to see a really effective film on this subject, check out "The Wave." Now with all that said, I have to say Wedge aka Tony Randazzo did a phenomenal, Oscar worthy performance. Nick "Ludes" Di Archangel
