WolfHound turned out to be quite a surprise. It was really pretty good, and nearly gets 5 stars in my opninion. There was much to like about this film, especially if sword & scorcery flicks are you typr of thing.
Based on a best-selling novel, WolfHound follows the tale of the last surviving member of a slaughtered tribe. Snatched as a child and enslaved, he escapes and grows up to become a fearsome warrior and is sucked into an all-out war of good Vs. evil
The costumes were great, as were the sets. The effects too were pretty impressive in places. The scenery was, quite frankly, stunning and WolfHound the warrior had one of the coolest familiars I've ever seen in a film: Torn Wing, the fruit bat.
The fight scenes were well choreographed and felt full of energy and the leading lady was beautiful. Best of all though was the storyline, which - I'm guessing because the film itself is Russian - felt far removed from the normal formula.
The acting was good and the score was pretty good too - adding to the film in all the right ways in all the right places. Overall - well worth a watch if you like this sort of thing and fancy something different. To sum up, WolfHound was a Howling success.
