Hi, this is my review for David Hayter's Wolves movie.
First I want to apologies for advance for any mistake you find; I am not an English speaker. Now, let's get to business, I'm doing this for the different kind of viewers, the curious people, the fans of the genre (you know, vampires, wolves, Supernatural, Buffy, Anne Rice, kind of genre) and the maybe negative/ skeptical people.
By saying this is obviously I too am a fan of this series and books, so I know what people like to feel and watch when seen a movie that have supernatural beings. The movie is about a teenage boy who just discovered he is a werewolf, yes I know what are you thinking, more of Twilight crap, teenage lovers, perfect life, fall in love, etc. etc. but nope, because everything turns upside down as death and desolation came to the life of Lucas Till () until a estrange character does a really weird talk to him and makes him go to and even weirder small town full of people that don't like the poor teenage werewolf and things get very interesting a cooler.
The movie has a very easy to understand narration, with a nice speed, and doesn't exaggerate nor waste any time trying to explain the wolves transformation or the supernatural forces behind the werewolf experience, instead it makes the viewer enjoy the experience of being a lupine, the speed, the force, enhance abilities which is something no many movies even bother to do and just portrait it as something tragic or negative as a course, whether is a vampire or wolf is practically the same result.
So you get the teenage that by the way is pretty much mature and wiser kind of boy, who is forced to do this transition of boy to man/wolf to defend himself and the people he loves, and also balance his personal life with all the scenarios that a teenage may live, and yes that include sex, very ferocious, aggressive and hairy sex.
About the actors and their rolls, all of them make an perfect believable non stereotypic characters which I personally enjoy very much, Lucas Till was excellent, not only did make maybe the best teenage werewolf of any movie but David Hayter's work as a director was really make me want to see more of his work for future projects, Jasom Mamoa was a force to be feared most of the time, he really pushed the other characters and made them fear him Merritt Patterson and Stephen McHattie played a great complement and pretty much all of them make a mayor roll that is like a big circle that creates a very intelligent narration with a very welcome twist at the near end.
This movie has a lot of lovely moments, great characters, with very interesting backgrounds that actually make me wanted to know more about them, the story is a very good and enjoyable adventure, that opens the path to a second movie and maybe a TV series which I think know is be the perfect moment, even a prequel with Mamoa character past would be great.
I think this is one of David Hayter finest works, which really put him in the level of great movie directors; I am really waiting for his next move.

Hi, this is my review for David Hayter's Wolves movie.
Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) is the high school star quarterback but he is struggling with some strange changes. After a couple of incidents including transformation, he decides to runaway. He finds out that he is adopted. He befriends Wild Joe who sends him to others at Lupine Ridge. Gail Timmins (Melanie Scrofano) is the drunken bartender. He is immediately attracted to her sister Angelina Timmins (Merritt Patterson). John Tollerman (Stephen McHattie) gives him a job at his farm. Connor (Jason Momoa) is the mysterious local gang leader.
The first thing one notice is that the transformation is revealed early on and the movie doesn't enjoy showing it. It doesn't have fun with the usual werewolf transformation sequence. It's possible that they don't have the expertise or the budget to do it properly. There is a lot of werewolf makeup. Most of it is fair. This is a lower budget Canadian production and strictly a cable TV movie. Still, there are possible ways to make it work better. There is no imagination in the filmmaking and the story moves too slowly. There is nothing surprising and there isn't any tension. Instead of rushing through his origins story, they should have started Cayden on the road. His past can be shown in quick flashbacks. None of it is that compelling anyways. This is not any good.
Had kind of a Teen Wolf meets The Lost Boys kind of thing going on.
I liked the fact that there was no CGI used it was all special effects and makeup, which was a nice break from todays excessive use of CGI. It's kind of what had me sold on it to be honest, the effort put into the costumes. You can see by the pictures they put a lot into the work on the wolves.
I think Angelica and Cayden looked pretty sweet as wolves, They looked about as real as a human/wolf could look, certainly looked better than Jack Nicholson's Wolf.
Yeah the acting wasn't spectacular, but really, when it comes to these kind of lower budget films.. It definitely isn't Underworld in that aspect but still it was a good little weekend special.
