This film is much better than it has any right to be. Made with a modest budget but a loving touch, WolfCop knows to embrace its cheesiness and that of its drive-in schlock predecessors and play to its strengths without taking itself too seriously. Whenever it falls flat, it feels more endearing than broken, which I suppose is due to the makers actually caring about what they were filming, and I'll take a lovingly crafted low-budget slopfest over an a-list blockbuster that wasn't given a single rat's behind by it's authors.
With that being said, there isn't really anything that stands out as exceptionally good. Although the fun had while filming is apparent and the enthusiasm of the effects department (if such can be said to have existed here) shines through, nothing can be graded more than "pretty good, considering". On the flip side of things, I couldn't find anything really horrible here either, as WolfCop is adept at covering its tracks (pun intended).
Booming with b-movie grit and outrageously strange choices of plot elements, WolfCop is a must watch for fans of "so bad it's good" – films and those interested in amateur films. Other viewers might need to take this movie with a grain of salt. And quite some alcohol.
