Storyline

In accordance with the Navajos' legend, a thirteen year-old boy will finish with the curse of the powerful Skinwalkers, a.k.a. werewolves. The half-breed boy Timothy is raised by his human mother Rachel and protected by his Skinwalkers relatives since he was born. His grandmother Nana, his uncle Jonas, his cousin Katherine, her boyfriend Adam and their friend Doak have kept the secret about his bloodline and neither Timothy nor Rachel know the tragic curse. A couple of days before Timothy's thirteenth birthday, a pack of evil Skinwalkers that had tasted blood leaded by the evil Varek chases the boy while his family protects him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Jonas: I'm nothing like you.
Varek: I am what I was meant to be. You live a lie... we were wrong. I know what you're feeling, trust me.
Jonas: Trust you? You're killing fellow human beings.
Varek: I am NOT human. And I will not risk spending the rest of my days as one. Deseased and flawed... we're better than that.

I tell ya... We get no respect... Or regard... But no respect...
2 August 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Werewolf movies are always difficult to make. They touch on an area of mythology that has so many facets, it's impossible to please everyone.

Everyone from Asia to the Natives of North America have tales of shape-shifting humans, and for some reason wolves became the go to animal for it. Stoopit sheep farmers...

Anyhoo...

I honestly liked this flick... I won't go so far as to say it's a must see, but it was entertaining and had just enough bite (see what I did there? classic comedy).

It's extremely difficult to sell a werewolf movie to someone who doesn't dig them in the first place.

They're nothing like vampyres. They aren't sexy, they aren't stylish, and they hardly ever keep a loft in a New York high rise.

Werewolves are the blue collar creature. They're always running, fighting, and sweating for everything they need.

And this flick does just that...

They start the clock running from the outset and establish that a single boy holds the key to the destruction or salvation of a race of werewolves, loosely based on the Native myths of Skinwalkers.

1 group attempts to protect the boy, while the other... Well... Wants to eat him.

Along the way, a few thousand rounds are spilled out of big shiny guns, and stuff gets blown up. There's enough sweat, hair tossing, and growled lines to keep any action fan happy. There's the mandatory martyr, rebel, desperate mother, and hot chick (even though she definitely loses some looks when she changes, werewolves ain't sexy). There's even the loving Grandma figure.

Turn off your brain, and pop some corn... You'll enjoy this flick if you don't read much into it.
