It's not unusual for alcoholic cop Lou to black out and wake up in unfamiliar surroundings, but lately things have taken a turn for the strange...and hairy. WolfCop is the story of one cop's quest to become a better man. One transformation at a time.Written by
WOLFCOP is a straightforward B-flick about a cop who turns into a werewolf. There's no more to it or less to it than that. It's very much in the spirit of the MACHETE films, albeit with a lower budget, in that it goes for a whole retro/non-serious vibe and just about gets by on goodwill alone.
The low budget is often apparent during this production, so the scriptwriter goes for a jokey tone throughout to make things easier to watch. The acting isn't very good, but the quality of the special effects is a real surprise; they actually turn out to be very good indeed, with some excruciating werewolf transformations that work well. The titular fiend looks rather cheesy but then that's the point.
Otherwise, the film is chock-full of grindhouse-style violence and some jumbled plotting. It's an amiable time-waster although those looking for genuine originality or insight will be disappointed; WOLFCOP is a film that offers nothing new for fans and instead is happy to go through the usual and expected motions.
