‘WolfCop’: Wolf In, Cop Out

wolfcop.png

WolfCop is the kind of bad movie people watch because they’re bad. But sometimes bad just ain’t good enough. With a premise and title that’s promising a lot, WolfCop falls short in delivering a wholly satisfying werewolf experience. The first two-thirds of the movie works out just fine. The transformation scenes aided by what looks like mostly practical effects are among the movie’s highlights. The action scenes are gory bloody disgusting but mostly incoherently  edited and shot. The final third is hinged on a twist that probably required more hints and setting up than what’s in the movie. With zero conflict comes zero payoff. Lou Garou, the titular werewolf-cop, simply needs to kill the bad guys if WolfCop has to survive. Weirdly enough, the movie reaches climax [prematurely] in the second act, in a hairy steamy sex scene behind the bars between the WolfCop and Jessica, the ravishing local bar owner who’s not obviously hiding some deep dark secrets. Unfortunately, like in most monster movies with sex and violence, it’s all downhill from there. And like in other horror movies, the protagonist loses plot armor once he/she loses his/her virginity. Which is to say WolfCop came a little early and failed to show up for the final round.
