Majid is a talented kick boxer from a gray, anonymous suburb in The Netherlands. As his fighting prowess brings him increasing notoriety in-and outside the ring, the worlds of kickboxing and organized crime begin to blur into each another and Maj id begins to lose sight of what it is he really wants.Written by
The movie was filmed in the Dutch city of Utrecht in the neighboorhood Kanaleneiland what is in real life a neighboorhood known for much crime and with much immigrants See more »
A good and cool movie. Just enjoy it.
First off I would like to say that don't hate a movie for cliché's, Love it for it's originality within the cliché's (if it has some of course), cause this movie has it.
Wolf, a film I thought would be a flop, at least at first when a friend of mine recommended it to me (I hate Dutch acting. So washed up "Look at me, I am *actors name*, therefore you love me, and what do you mean with the character I portray in this movie is the same as in all my movies, people love my acting" style.). But man was I wrong. And when I say wrong, I mean WRONG. I enjoyed the entirety of the movie, maybe because I grew up in similar circumstances, with similar people during the 90's and 00's, or maybe because the acting, and Character development, and Dialogue was done/written superbly, and spot on.
The kind of story it holds however, has been overused, and understandably, it is therefore a cliché. Nevertheless the overall feel to it was different, as you got a chance to see Dutch street life as it has never been shown before. A real look into it, rather than a joke, or a failed attempt.
Wolf is worth the watch on any occasion, though I recommend you watch it with no more than 3 people including yourself.
I rate this movie an 6.8, for enjoyment, and time well spend.
