Overall: 5/10

WolfCop is a quintessential B-movie, romanticising an era when the A- and B-movie system still existed. I went into it hoping for something that was daft but fun. Unfortunately, what I got was far short of that.

For far too much of the movie - the first 20 minutes at least - the story is played almost completely straight. Sgt Lou Garou is a stereotypical lazy cop, and his name (a pun on the French word for werewolves) is pretty much the only joke we get. It only hits its stride with his first transformation scene, followed by a hyperactive torrent of physical comedy and dog/wolf jokes. The change of pacing is so jarring that I wonder what writer/director Lowell Dean thought he was doing.

The tone management is not the only thing that's shoddy, though. The special effects, beginning with the werewolf costume and continuing throughout the movie, are really poor, as is the acting from the almost entirely Canadian cast. The plot develops gaping holes, indicating a general lock of thoroughness... and worst of all, it is mostly not funny.

Parody may seem easy, but it is fraught with potential pitfalls. Mocking something for being bad by making your own version that is bad just doesn't cut it. The intention here seems to be a cross between Teen Wolf and Hobo With a Shotgun, but it doesn't have a star with the charisma and comic timing of 80s Michael J Fox, and Hobo With a Shotgun... well, let's be honest, it's rubbish.

I genuinely believe the intention here was pastiche rather than genuine ineptitude, but instead of making the film amusingly bad, they have ended up with a film that is just bad.
