Decently done - could've been better
25 September 2018 | by TheAlmightyFingerSee all my reviews

Positives: "Wildling" is an original, refreshing take on werewolf lore. Bel Powley is excellent as the main character, supported by believable performances from the rest of the cast. The cinematography is good and the story develops at a reasonable pace.

Negatives: I felt that the final quarter of the film succumbed to slash/horror tropes that detracted from the intelligence of the rest of the film. A more subtle or poignant ending would have made this film memorable, maybe even achieving cult status. It saddens me that the screenwriter/director failed at the final hurdle.

Verdict: Definitely worth a watch, if only to revel in Bel Powley's amazing eyes.
