Did You Know?


(at around 1 min) There is a long camera shot of Erika and Jake standing in front of a picket fence, facing each other, about 25 feet apart. They start charging at each other and the camera shows close-ups of each, cutting back and forth between the two, as they are in a full sprint for seven seconds. The camera then switches back to a long shot, and you see that each of them have moved only about four feet. See more »

I've seen worse...
17 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

but War Wolves wasn't necessarily a good movie in my opinion. Although I was dubious about seeing the film, I was intrigued and watched it with an open mind BEFORE reading any reviews of any kind. War Wolves did have some good points, namely the idea, which was interesting and had a lot of potential, and the performances of Adrienne Barbeau, Tim Thomerson and John Saxon were good with great chemistry. I also admired the fact that War Wolves did try to focus on action rather than dull filler. The action was nothing outstanding, it was enthusiastically performed if rather basic and hindered further by clumsy editing, but I have seen duller action sequences before. However, War Wolves also contains some of the worst-looking werewolves I've seen, the story is very all over the place and sluggish and the script is aimless, contrived and doesn't leave the actors much to work with. I have seen far more annoying and stereotypical characters, but I didn't find many of the characters very interesting, and this was disappointing considering that film had a concept this good. The ending felt very rushed and if given more time to breathe would've been less senseless. It was nice to hear Ave Maria, as it is a lovely song, but the way it was used here made it feel cheesy and thrown in. All in all, not a good movie, but I can think of worse ways to waste my time. 4/10 Bethany Cox
