Storyline

Filmed in the style of such Hollywood action classics as Bullitt and The French Connection, the first image we see in Wolves Don't Eat Meat is through the scope of a rooftop sniper's rifle just before he makes a kill. A frantic chase through the streets of town follows as the assassin, Anwar, makes his getaway. Wounded and exhausted, Anwar stumbles into the home of a stranger where he is allowed to recuperate and his story unfolds. We learn that he was once an ambitious journalist who has been transformed into a slaughterer of men by the years of war, suffering and destruction he has witnessed around the world - starting with the massacre at Deir Yassin in Palestine. A message film about good vs. evil and the negative effects of violence, Wolves Don't Eat Meat nevertheless employs the trademark sex, violence and bloodshed popularized in Hollywood action films of the 1970s, a style that later influenced the films of directors such as Quentin Tarantino and Oliver Stone. Written by Ryan Davis, AFD

Fierce Egyptian exploitation classic.
2 December 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Wolves Don't Eat Meat" by Samir Khouri was banned in many Arabic countries due to its scenes of bloody violence,gratuitous full-frontal nudity and its political message.The director is from Lebanon and he worked on several movies in Italy including few Sergio Bergonzelli's movies."Wolves Don't Eat Meat" plays like the cross between action flick and erotic drama with some giallo elements thrown in.The cinematography is rough and the action scenes are highly intense.There are car chases,execution style killings,violent shoot-outs and masked killer on wheelchair.The orgy of violence in slaughterhouse has to be seen to be believed.In Arabic movies you can't show any nudity,but "Wolves Don't Eat Meat" contains plenty of naked female flesh.8 wolves out of 10.
