Okay, I know WolfCop isn’t supposed to be taken seriously in the least bit and honestly, expectations are meant to be super low going in, but still, at least try to not look like a made for Canadian TV show. Reeking of low budget, TV-ness, WolfCop has some awful acting, some hit or miss comedy and a story that is kind of dumb, but you know what, I’d love for there to a sequel, just so they can give it another shot. Howl on to see if you agree…

Short nitty-gritty plot description is as follows: As a series of strange and violent events start happening, an alcoholic policeman realizes that he has been turned into a werewolf as part of a larger plan, so he investigates with the help of his partner and his friend.
Movie Opinion: The story is pretty basic, a cop turns into a wolf and goes around arresting people. However, that’s not all the movie is about and if I was to tell you any more, it would ruin the entire film, so I’ll leave it at that. What I can tell you though, is I wish the movie spent a lot more time on Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) as the Cop who is a Wolf. It didn’t feel like much of the movie was spent with him being all hairy and powerful. Yeah, there are a few scenes here and there that are a blast to watch, but those come few and far between. Instead, we kind of bumble around for awhile, while Lou figures out what’s going on with him and bam, the ending happens. I should point however, that if you’re in the mood for a wolf on woman love scene, you’ll be very happy! That woman is going to be coughing up hairballs for days.
The writing and acting aren’t going to be taking any awards home this time around (except for Sarah Lind, as she is smoking hot, although I think she has a booby stunt double), as it all feels a little too stiff. Also, I really can’t get over how much this movie looks like a TV show and a low budget one at that. There is just something strange and off about the way it looks, that it makes me think a commercial break is going to pop up at any time. However, at least the gore effects and wolf hair look amazing. There are a couple of really cool kills in this one.
Verdict: WolfCop is a strange one, as it looks cheap, acts cheap and is cheap, but I still want a sequel. If they spend more time on the Wolf arresting/killing bad guys, then yeah, I’m game, but if they waste any more precious minutes on nothing like they did with this one, then no, I’m done.
