The LA police department have a special team of officers with a talent for reducing big-time crime. The team leader has an excellent track record for crime reduction in other big cities, but his methods are unconventional, and so is he - he's a werewolf.Written by

Full Eclipse is an excellent spin on the classic werewolf tale and just a fun, cheesy B movie. From the get-go you feel as though you're watching Lethal Weapon 7. There's even the "I'm getting too old for this..." line. Then the "Bionic X-Men" show up in the form of a secret werewolf police squad and it turns into one of my guilty pleasure werewolf flicks. It doesn't touch "The Howling", but it's on the right track. Bruce Payne and Mario Van Peebles are hamming it up a bit but it fits the tone. I always enjoy watching both of those guys. This may be director Anthony Hickox's last good film (besides Warlock: The Armageddon which was made the same year). If so, it's a great way to cap off an impressive but short-lived horror career. Full Eclipse is a little hard to find, but well worth it for a good mix of action, horror, and cheese.
