Almost no redeeming qualities, just an awful awful SyFy movie.
22 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why I bother with TV movies being released to DVD anymore. Maybe to steer you guys away from them, I dunno. Just because the box looks good and it's got 'wolf' in the title does not a good movie make, my friends.

It starts out with this oil company that needs to do some drilling out in the woods and the crew comes across this weird circle-looking thing sticking out of the ground. They call the project manager, Stark (Picardo, who has a permanent sneer on his face the entire movie) and he more or less tells them to continue or they'll lose their jobs.They do so and it disturbs the force or something like that and out pops a wolf and it slaughters them all with malicious glee. Sheriff Bennett (Macaulay) and his CSI team investigate while Stark meets with Chief Turner (Reevis), one of the last Native Americans, about what's going to happen with the land now. Chief Turner refuses, so Stark hires Maria (Varela), a hot-shot, big-city lawyer who just happens to be the daughter of Sheriff Bennett. So she rolls back into town and of course, her ex-boyfriend Yale (London) is there to complicate matters just a bit. From there, we get to see them all shudder in terror when the wolf appears on screen and try to figure out how to get rid of the wolf and so forth. It's really not worth your time, believe me.

I suppose if you watch a lot of TV movies (and I don't), this may be decent. I realize that the budget isn't the same as a Hollywood-produced film but I've seen indie films with better special effects and CGI than this mess. One I just watched recently, Maneater, comes to mind. Besides the bad F/X, there's also the bad acting that you have to contend with. Some of the frightened villagers were so over-the-top, I didn't know if they were scared or were having a seizure. Maybe we can blame some of the bad acting on the horrible script. The words that came out of their mouths, I don't know the actors said them and kept a straight face --- hmm, maybe they're better actors than I'm giving them credit for.

If all that doesn't make you take this out of your Netflix queue, then try this on for size. There was an ominous soundtrack playing (for what seems like) constantly in the background. I kid you not. They couldn't have any more background ambiance in this movie if they hid a string quartet in the freakin' jungle. How annoying! It was supposed to make you feel like you were on the edge of your seat the whole movie, but it did not succeed. Instead, it made my thumb be on the edge of the volume control on my remote so I could hear what the characters were saying half the time. Movie volume up, movie volume down, movie volume up, movie volume down. Sometimes less is more when it comes to soundtracks.

Let me tell you one of the scenes that really tested my patience with this movie. Don't worry, I won't give out any "important plot details" (as if) or ruin the story for you. The bounty hunter that Stark hires, Coughlin (Eyez, who should win a Worst Acting EVER award and I mean soon) takes an AK-47 to the wolf and shoots him about a million times. That gun runs out, so he grabs another AK-47 and shoots him about a million more times. When the wolf (who isn't fazed a bit by this, nothing I tell you, doesn't even limp or slow down) finally gets close enough to Coughlin, it pounces and Coughlin whips out a handgun and shoots it.... and it goes flying back like it was hit by a bazooka.

Not a good movie, by any means. Not even in the sense "it's so bad, it's good". About the only thing going for it is a somewhat decent production quality (not the special effects or CGI, mind you). I'm talking about how it doesn't look like it was filmed with a camcorder and sound like it was recorded inside a water tank. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: D-
