A teenage boy named Cayden starts to experience strange blackouts, enhanced strength and speed. Oh, and he’s turning into a werewolf. One day, after a blackout out he wakes up to find he’s killed his parents and attacked his girlfriend. He flees before the police arrive. A few scenes later Cayden is in a bar when meets a mysterious one eyed stranger, who also happens to be the only other werewolf he’s ever met. The stranger sends Cayden on a journey to a town where he can find more of “their kind”. Once there, he runs into a group of werewolves and their leader, Conner. Neither Conner or Cayden are aware of their connection to each other at first. Conner is far being a nice guy. He makes Cayden’s stay in town a nightmare. What else can cause such a clash between two men but a woman? The object of their affection is Angel, the local bar owner. She has a tough choice to make.
The “big bad wolf” (Conner) is played by Jason Mamoa from The Game Of Thrones. Mamoa also wrote, directed and starred in Road To Paloma. The role of Cayden is played by Lucas Till. Till starred in X-Men: First Class (2011) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). The film also stars Kaitlyn Leeb (Wrong Turn 4) and Marritt Patterson (The Hole).
The werewolves looked like they stepped right out of the classic movie ” The Wolfman” and that’s not a bad thing. There are no giant, drooling, muscle bound werewolves in this flick. There is not a lot of blood and gore, which is rare for a werewolf movie.
I have to admit, my main motivation for watching “Wolves” in the first place was to drool over that sexy beast, Jason Mamoa. Ok, I might be a little “fangirl” over Mr.Mamoa. Overall the movie was decent.
