Bullet Points: WOLFCOP
When you sit down to watch a movie like WOLFCOP you should have some idea of what you’re getting into by the name itself. It obviously doesn’t itself too seriously which is good for a movie about a werewolf cop. The plot allows for a number of expendable henchmen to be ravaged by our main character, and ravage them he will do. I hope you get a chance to check this movie out. It has some fun action scenes in it and is very funny throughout most of the film. So as we do every Friday, here is a look at a entertaining-as-hell movie from our friendly neighbors up north.Thanks Canada! Now on to the Bullet Points:
The Gist: Hard-drinking duputy Sgt. Lou Garou is not unaccustomed to blacking out and waking up in random places but this time it’s a little different. This time he’s not puking himself to sleep; he’s turning into a werewolf and fighting crime! Something fishy is going on in this small Canadian town and Lou is one cop who can really sniff out the bad guys and bring them to justice!
This would be the perfect Halloween costume!
The Cast: As a man Lou Garou is a terrible cop. As a wolf he kills a lot of people. I don’t know which is worse but a werewolf cop ripping dudes faces off is much more entertaining to watch then some drunk guy barfing into a sink. If I want to watch a drunk guy puke his guts out I’ll go to my family reunion. My favorite character was Willy the gun store owner. That dude was funny as hell. That’s the best thing about this movie; it didn’t try to take its premise too seriously. I mean, how could you? The bartender chick had a great rack also.
A big thanks goes out to Sarah Lind, who plays the bartender, for showing off all of her “assets”.
The Villain: Lou gets drunkenly called out into the woods and that is where the mysterious hooded cult people snatch him up and perform whatever wolf-making ceremony it was that turned Lou into the Wolfcop. It’s a good thing too cause with him these villains would have really had nothing to do. They seemed pretty content just robbing little stores and selling drugs but turning people into werewolves is a whole new level of criminal activity. The twist of who the cult people are is much less important than how they’ll be killed by Wolfcop.
The Action: It takes a while for Lou to become Wolfcop but when he does, prepare for some excellent Wolfcop action! There are a number of amazing wolf mauling scenes and a pretty funny montage of Willy and Wolfie rolling around in the Wolfcop-mobile stopping criminals with his various wolf-like abilities. The highlights of the movie for me were watching a man’s face be ripped off like a candy wrapper, seeing some graffiti artists getting pissed on, and the werewolf love scene…yes, Wolfcop gets lucky. And I must say that he is a surprisingly gentle love-maker.
It kinda looks like they’re laughing at the same joke. They’re not…
Take it Home:
- Foreign to me: The movie was filmed in Regina, Saskatchewan and Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada.
- Cameos: Every Canadian movie needs to have a cameo by the Trailer Park Boys.
- Wolfing out: The transformation scene was pretty gruesome. Way better than I expected it to be.
- No big deal: Lou wakes up and finds he has a massive symbol carved into his chest and he just shrugs it off and goes to work.
- Favorite Quote: “What the fuck are you?” “The Fuzz.”
- Favorite Quote: “Hey Lou, don’t forget to murder someone else on your way to the car. Low profile man.”
C’mon…you know you want to watch it.
