The first thing very the film — unlikely it can be considered a horror or Thriller in the literal sense of these genres. It is, blood and meat mash here, of course, a lot, maybe even too much, and pretty realistic (or at least not familiar with real corpses man it seems realistic), although it is absolutely stupid bloody scenes were there — in General, the film is not for the faint of heart. But it is rather mystical horror-fantasy with elements of "black" Comedy.

Who doesn't agree with the latter, recall, in the last battle fine for the top falls or Gardena man in reception the doctor asks: "do I look like a werewolf?" — typical appearance werewolf medieval concepts, I must say.

In an interview with one of the actors — Adam Croasdell — located in Vkontakte, he says it a sense of presence in graphic of rum. It is on a graphic novel film and turned out to be similar (at least on the Japanese manga) — and the characters, and the intertwining of genres, and atmosphere. So, as graphic novels like not all not will be soul this movie.

What kind of "werewolf: the Beast among us" is similar to "Vampire Hunter D", especially on the full movies "Bloodlust" — if desired, even among hunters, you can find Parallels, but with the big stretch.

By the way, in the same an interview said that shooting "Werewolf..." took place in Transylvania — of course, its most famous inhabitant of the plot of the film does not have any relationship, but to admire you.

Dark, tense atmosphere, a great soundtrack, creating a mood, the inability long enough with accuracy to say who is it was the werewolf, good acting and unexpected end — all leaves quite a good impression after viewing.

There is in film badly stitched highlights: in the editing, the dialogue and etc. But all does not spoil the overall picture. And most of them don't even noticeable first viewing.

In General, the film creates the impression of some "neprochitannoe". As though if to compare with works of literature, write written, but last before the publication does not read. Although, when it comes to the movie, "to read" in last before the publication does not so simple, especially when a small budget. For example, I still seems that there was not one werewolf, and two, just about nobody knew:) In many reviews, at this on other sites like the main absurdities of the call: ancient flamethrower, a cure for full moon and that werewolf, hanging on the tree, the villagers somehow not killed, although recently shot several of the its locked in the camera, thinking that one of them is a werewolf. Well, in the latter case, all, in my opinion, is quite logical: people are afraid, and easily shot a few helpless people, but seeing the transformation of a werewolf, they are not just scared — fear them has paralyzed and they "forgot", with which side firearms trigger, and then, recollecting himself, have tried to kill.

A cure for a full moon — sounds silly with the point of view of every fan of werewolves, but no, for some reason, not suggested that it could be the "horse" dose of sleeping pills:) Then this was possible: the transformation is, of course, not stop, but the werewolf nobody can harm. Although in the film the essence of this medicine is not open. What to ancient flamethrower — it seems that absurdity, read about  the"Greek fire" is, of course, not same thing, but that it seemed at first careless stupidity of the authors, begin to look for different.

In addition to the "mistakes" in the film generally a lot of things (subtleties) that do not will notice at first viewing.

In the case, "werewolf: the Beast among us" feels very large prior training: a thorough study of mythology, at least the vampires (about werewolves I know less, so not can tell). That is folklore, but not a modern tradition. And steel false teeth of one of the hunters — it seems that there. In Slavic(!) folklore there is mention of that the vampires "steel fangs". If only this is not a surprising coincidence, the filmmakers do not able to adapt them. their vampire, but to unsubscribe from them were able. Here and came up with this oddity, which, by the way, in the fight with the werewolf was more effective than most other weapons of the hunters.

In General, with the technical point of view — the film is mediocre, or"solid" middling — who is more likes. Makes itself felt a small budget. But makers of tried. Fans of classic horror about werewolves it to look is — the werewolf here at all most importantly, it is, in my opinion, without the loss of the essence of the plot can be easily replaced by any other character that applies to the problem of the duality of nature. "Werewolf: the Beast among us" — this kind of terrible tale. And is something that makes for least I can watch it already 4 times (that I'm weird).

My opinion — if a bigger budget = more "UsefulRest" + more spectacular action scenes that are so loves the modern viewer, it could be a masterpiece.

8 10 

I understand that to 10 it is far, but a personal impression: the film is gorgeous!

There are movies that, despite its low cost and ease of performance, it still deliver some pleasure to the viewer. And like to dear spectacular blockbuster, this film is far. And actors are chosen is unknown (or little known). Again, no — the other canadalocation deprived. And the is just the case when (although not necessarily) to kill an hour and a half of leisure. I very quickly over picture.

Since the plot, many do not say. However, he typical "edible", for such a film. If you take in account the budget, then of course it becomes clear that that you not "van Helsing". Yes, which — there. Not even close worth it. But, and the level of the other. So. The development of the plot of the story takes place in the measure intensely. But dialogues like oddly enough, does not burden the viewer. It seems to be all that it is said, has a direct relationship with events. It is seen immediately that the Director tried to give his work the quality factor. At least to the extent that enough funds. Here well, the writers interfere with tresource horror with drama. Bad whether this? I wouldn't said. Rather, it is neutral. I mean, the drama is the place to be, but, in view of the shortage of certain dynamics, it becomes too drawn. And here, already, there is a question — what am I looking at? The drama in packaging horror stories, or Vice versa? Probably, the first. A certain plot cuffs — turns, though, needs to put pressure on a tear. What can I say more. There are good costumes, there sparse graph, there is a normal scenery. The action takes place under the forgettable music. That, in — something a little strange. On account of the composer, there is good work in movie. Well, Oh well. Perhaps, a few words about the actors. In fact, to distinguish one — that not has a special meaning. All work on level. Specifically, on the level of the low-budget horror film. Even, who — and better. A set of characters for the highly anticipated. A great team of hunters on evil spirits, in the head of which stands, Ala, cowboy in the hat with a revolver, a curious fellow, it crush pair — the three minor officials and suspects. At this all.

In the end, "werewolf: the Beast among us" — this movie is not so disgusting miserable. I've seen worse. But, I confess, and not required. My event viewing, I would describe this way. It was evening — there was nothing to do. So, if you really nothing to see, or bored boredom, you can watch this movie. To me, he brought some pleasant experience. You see, these attempts quite a lot. And this, I want to mention, not worst them. And so, is the place to be. Thank you for attention. Let, have be green. Not sorry. Assessment, it is likely blatantly exaggerated on a few points. Again, in the context of existing category B.

7 out of 10

A huge problem with this film is in that all there is it looks somehow too flawed. One gets the impression that Universal had extra money, well and they have decided to remove this here is a miracle in the money was not so many, but enough for in order to get another prohodnyak. Maybe not a bad film about werewolves, but my opinion, this picture is very close to this, it not more than failure.

Plus all the story ponameshano some bunch of other stuff and popular films about the werewolves "Beast among us" well does not like. 've done here "smart" monsters, a gang of "van Helsing" hunting for them that brought up some ghouls and even quite a real vampire lit. But the nonsense is probably a horse with wheels from coach for the rear so say feet. God, who invented it? Looks like a another film by Uwe Boll. If the picture was called "In the name of king is 3", then I'd probably did not surprised.

In General, do not quite clear anyone what is removed. Not will say of course that all so it is straight bad, with atmosphere by the way got directly in a point, but if someone will miss this "masterpiece" by its eyes and ears, a lot is clearly not lose. More 4 of 10 I this film put just do not can. Absolutely senseless and ruthless the viewer is nonsense, which have to be sorry for time spent.
