Varek: Don't make me do something I don't want to do. Join me. We're one and the same.
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.

a long episode of Buffy the Vampire Sayer
28 May 2008 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Skinwalkers is the story of a group of werewolves hunting a child who they must kill before he turns 13 because according to legend he will end the werewolf curse if he hits his birthday. Rhona Mitra is his mother, who only learns about this when the werewolves descend on their little town.

There is absolutely nothing original in this story, but both the male and female actors are gorgeous and the fight scenes are good, especially an early gunbattle involving a tough revolver wielding grandmother. The production, however is lacking and looks more like an episode of the week than a big screen flick. The music is even worse.

Even with the tiniest amount of scrutiny, the plot has big holes and at one point you will be yelling at your screen about how a group of people can be so dumb. But in the end its mildly satisfying....and did I mention everyone looks amazing.
