Wolves Review


A boy is trying to find out about his family history and stumbles upon a town of lycans.

Wolves (2014) is a Canadian action thriller horror movie that was filmed in various parts of Canada. The movie contains awesome wolf creatures that stand out and did exceptionally well for the budget. The movie contains sexual content, violence, scares, great acting, gore, suspense, frightening scenes and not the types of werewolves I expected to see.

Wolves starts by showing us Cayden Richards ( Lucas Till - X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), Walk the Line (2005), Stoker (2013)) explaining the recurring nightmares that he has been having and what he thinks it might mean. Not so long after, Cayden unwillingly hurts his girlfriend while kissing her in the car and then accidentally transforms into a wolf. After some events, he woke up in his house to find his parents bodies dismembered and blood on himself. Cayden ran away thinking that he killed his parents and also his girlfriend is telling everyone that he did. Cayden is now on the run from the police and tries his best to control his transformations. Cayden visits a bar where he meets other werewolves and learns about himself. He found out that there are two types of werewolves; those bitten and those who were born werewolves from werewolf parents. He also learns that he is a very rare, powerful wolf, and there are only a few bloodlines left. Cayden was adopted and therefore did not know he was a wolf until recently.

Cayden went to another bar where he was not wanted by other werewolves. He was basically chased out of the bar, and one werewolf warned him to stay away from that area because he is in great danger. After a few more events, Cayden finds a job as a farmhand in a local farm. Farmer John tells Cayden about his mother and father. Cayden is surprised of whom his father is and is not pleased. His mother was raped by his monstrous father whom he had encountered early on, not knowing he was his father. MAJOR SPOILER - Cayden’s father, Connor ( Jason Momoa - Stargate: Atlantis (2004), Conan the Barbarian (2011), Bullet to the Head (2012)) does not know that he has a son. Will the father and son have a dual - watch the movie and see.

I like the movie and might even watch it again. Yes - it is another teen werewolf movie but it stood out and was not a waste of my time to watch. I would recommend this movie to all werewolf fans. The graphics, sets, actors and lighting were all good. I could not believe the wolves and how amazing they looked for such a small budget. These wolves look better than movies with high-end budgets. It is basically not how much money you have but how wisely you use it. The cover photo gave me a wrong perception about the movie - watch and you will see what I mean.
