5.0 out of 5 stars Very silly, but lots of fun 13 Jan 2004
Format:DVD
If you like your historical dramas rich in costume, sets & martial arts (?!), then this is the film for you!
Set in 1764, it centres on the investigations of two men (Gregoire de Fronsac & his kung-fu Mohawk pal - no, really) into the appearence of a mysterious savage beast, which hunts down women & children mercilessly in the Gevaudan region of France.
Cut through the martial arts bizarritude, & you have a rather decent film which supplies all the necessary: action; intrigue; love interest; guns; wolves; exploding pumpkins; prostitutes & lots of peasants thrashing about in mud.
The actors are well cast & include the wonderful Vincent Cassel as a disturbingly incestuous bad guy. The soundtrack is a voluptuous mix of bagpipes, accordians, & 'Gladiator' style atonal wailings. Blend these with cartoon style incidental sound effects (Kerrrunnch! Kablammnn!), a darkened room & a good sound system & you're in for an eerie time. (Watch it with subtitles to complete the experience.)
As a whole, this tale is a rich masterpiece which contains a more than a grain of truth at it's heart. If you can suspend your disbelief for 2 hours 17 minutes (plus the historical docmentary) you shouldn't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars French period Martial arts wolfie flick 10 April 2008
By K Holl
Format:DVD
This is a great film hard to pigeon hole as it is a werewolf movie / martial arts / period drama. A beast is rampaging through the countryside in France but is it a real beast or a myth what is going on? The answer comes at the end of the film but the journey is a great one: Monica Belluci plays a mysterious Italian courtesan and Vincent Cassell plays the son of a wealthy and powerful noble. The interiors and costumes are sumptuous and it is refreshing to watch a film where the acting and script holds up rather than relying on cgi effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic masterpiece .......... 24 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Christophe Gans finally returns to directing nearly eight years since his previous film 'Crying Freeman'. Surprisingly - his comandeering skills have blossomed over this time to depart from his stylistic yet slightly forgettable attempt in the 1995 anime adaptation, and have emerged ; bloody fangs clamped in a genre defying visual attack on the senses that has to be seen to be believed.
the story is based on a real one. tales in ancient france 1764 of a beast that brutally murders women and children escalates into a 3 year long hunt for a wolf with metal teeth and bristling fur. despite all attempts - the creature evades the local jurisdiction and two men are sent from the king to deal with the matter.
thats all you really need to know in the story department. whether that tantalizes you or not is unimportant - because there are no words to describe the impact this film will have on you. hate it, or love it, it's impossible to ignore. blending thriller, mystery, romance, period drama, horror, humour, action, and even kung-fu with sumptuous visuals and some stunning special effects ; the movie triumphs over the stale stench of typecast cinema from france nowadays as well as hollywood and comes as a welcome breath of fresh air to the film industry.
this truly is cinematic gold, as Christophe manages to weave an epic that is more consistant in style and performance than the mighty Lord Of The Rings. at a huge 140 minutes (and believe me - it may feel even longer during the film, but you'll be left beggin for more) it could be forgiven for taking it's time shaping the action, relationships, and mystery of the wolf. but Christophe dives you straight in from the first shot, and never lets up for a minute of the 2hr 17 min running time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brotherhood of the Wolf (Blu-ray version) 10 Dec 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Christophe Gans 2001 production Brotherhood of the Wolf is finally given its U.K. Blu-ray release in 2011 but unlike its French counter-part from 2008 which is still the best version available on Blu-ray, the British version is the shorter cut of the film (139 minutes) the preferred version is the 151 minute "Directors cut" from France.

The good news is that this region B 50gb disc comes encoded using MPEG-4 AVG in full 1080p resolution with French DTS Master audio 5.1 with a full set of English subtitles that appear inside the picture frame and are of a decent size and font, there is also a English dubbed version in DTS master audio 5.1 both soundtracks also come in 2 track DTS master audio, comparing this to the 2002 copy on DVD the Blu-ray is better in terms of richer colours and deeper blacks and a soundtrack which is re-born in all departments, clearer music more satisfying sound effects and more defied dialogue, the only extra is 77minute behind the scenes documentary, the DVD release had the original theatrical trailer and 17 minute interview which is called The Brotherhood of the Wolf - The Legend with Michel Louis who wrote the Book about "The Beast of Gévaudan" which some of this story is based on.

I have taken one star off because this is not the Directors -cut.

Now to look for that French version on-line...

5.0 out of 5 stars Like no other 11 Nov 2006
By D. I. Shipley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I did not really know what to expect when I went to see this film. I was aware that it was one of the biggest grossing French films at the box office in France of all time, and was about the mysterious beast that terrorised the French countryside in the 1760s. I went to see it at a suburban cinema and younger members of the audience were sneering at the French accents and the subtitles. That did not last very long, however, because the film soon utterly engrossed them, as indeed, it did myself.

Samuel Le Bihan plays an adventurer/naturalist who is attached to the Royal Court at Versailles. He is sent to a rural region of France to try to trap the elusive beast which is now responsible for an increasing number of killings. Accompanying him on his quest is is 'half brother'- Mani (played by that veteran of martial arts films - Mark Dacascos.

The two are made welcome at the chateau of the local aristocrat and from there they begin their quest.

The film does not really fall into any genre but draws from a number. Throw in Martial Arts fights, superstitious peasants, a beast that looks like a relative of the monster from 'The Relic', packs of wolves, a deformed madman, plots to overthrow the Monarchy, and you have an idea of what to expect....

Director Christopher Gans (Silent Hill)has made a beautifully photographed and multi layered film here. As the film progresses, gradually the reality of what is going on becomes apparent. The cinematography is superb - in particular the forest and snow sequences which have an almost enchanted/magical feel to them. The cast are all superb and play out their roles with relish. The film is brutal in places and does not hold back on the gore.
