I go into this movie with high expectations, I just thought it would be passable. Immediately it was far worse. Most of the character designs are hideous. The writing is absolutely dreadful. The comedy is largely humour, and the jokes that aren't are still unoriginal. The soundtrack is grating. The voice acting is mostly average, the only compliment I can give is to Jane Lynch who seemed like she had a blast.
This was a fun kids movie, released perfectly in October near Halloween, as a non-scary movie about werewolves. The tale has an incredible subtext on very serious themes including racism, poverty and growing up, but deals with them in a very kid-friendly way. The animation is spectacular in a believable but cartoon style that again helps distance from the difficult reality the characters find themselves in. The ending casts very quiet but difficult questions about the future for these characters which is very in theme with life and current events and is probably there just for the parents. Well worth the watching.
Watched this with my 6 year old. Pretty good, but the plot is mostly for kids. we both loved it! Reminded me of the Queen's Corgi, quite predictable but so enjoyable. Really made my son laugh and me too, in different places. Really cute and a good clean ending.
The writing is so bad, I bet the writers took the rough draft, wiped their asses with it, and called it a screenplay. The only laughs to be had in this film are ironic ones. The jokes are so unfunny that they make me want to projectile vomit into someone's gas tank. I could be high on nitrous oxide and I wouldn't find this film funny. The soundtrack is so obnoxious that hearing it made me want to drill screws into my ears. The acting however, was passable. Nothing to write home about but, you could tell that the actors tried. The animation, decent. I've seen better but, I've seen worse. Overall, if the script had been put into the hands of a more competent writer, then we might have gotten a decent film.
They took something as cool as a werewolf story and made it boring. Even song of big foot waIt's not some any school john howlington is the only werewolf academy in the world also it's a training academy for the night patrol s at least entertainingJust saw the movie and loved it :P Shippers will have a field day with Freddy and Batty, though xD They will love the new material :PI thought it would be a trashy movie, but it was really fun to watch . A little bit to short, I would really like a second part .
The movie is very quick paced, which compliments both the colourful, exciting visuals as well as the energetic performances of the actors - I have a massive soft spot for Rhys Darby and Magda Szubanski! There's also the added bonus of Australian accents being used in the movie in a natural way. 100% Wolf in every way achieves it's goal of delivering a fun romp for kids, not without an earnest dose of heart (I got a bit teary at times). Plus the dogs are effin cute.
I personally like the kind of stories that have a unique aura to them. And this is one of them. In fact, i find these kinds of stories much more interesting than all the multi-million budget movies; because you can see the dedication and sincerity in making them. The story is a little fast forward, it could be fully cooked if we gave it two hours. Animation is as expected of it. There are a few flaws, i'm not gonna lie, even in the story. But, i like these kinds of stories because even their mistakes have the scent of dedication. It is not one of those flashy animations that have no real meaning.
We absolutely loved the movie. Kids were engaged throughout and watched it multiple times. Great to hear Aussie accents throughout the picture. Enjoyed the banter between characters and some wonderful comedy for the grown ups too. Such an enjoyable movie.
This movie is nuts, but its tons of fun. There's always so much happening that sometimes even the movie can't always keep track of it. It has an extremely fast pace. The voice acting was brilliant. It doesn't always make sense, it leaves a few unanswered questions, and the whole villain angle was very weak. The animation was good, but not quite up to par with some other computer animated flicks. It was also predictable at every turn, but nonetheless, kids will probably love it. I enjoyed it, thought the story was fine and it was funny in places. As I said, though, so much happens at once in certain scenes and its so energetic towards the end that I felt like my head would explode.
I love this film. A real good family film which will make you laugh out loud one minute and shed a tear the next. This film knows how to hit you in the heart at the beginning with an echo of simba and mufasa´s relationship and ending. The scene had me all laughing.
Publisher Nicholson, struggling with personal and professional mid-life crises, runs into a wolf on a lonely road and gets bitten. Soon after, his senses become more acute, his teeth get sharper, he grows hairier and he becomes ruthless at the office. After flexing his newfound animal magnetism on rich drop-out Pfeiffer, Jack starts roaming New York by night, ripping off muggers' fingers and howling at the full moon. Anyone who has seen more than half-a-dozen horror films will work out quickly that Nicholson has become a werewolf (a word the script coyly doesn't use), but big-name helmer Nichols and an A-list cast strangely seem to believe this is fresh meat. Like all werewolves, this film is cursed by duality: despite the fervour a toothy Nicholson and an edible Pfeiffer bring to their roles, it's simply too ridiculous for a mainstream audience and too familiar for horror fans. As they pad ominously across the screen, plot developments will have genre cognoscenti checking off bits from The Werewolf Of London, Curse Of The Werewolf, I Was A Teenage Werewolf and An American Werewolf In London. And, going against the grain of recent bubbling rubber or morphing effects, the movie relies on Nicholson's growly face, minimally augmented by old-fashioned yak hair and dentures. It's a nice idea, but it won't scare anyone who has seen The Howling. The first act, before Nicholson gets into hairy business, effectively juggles satire at the expense of the cut-throat publishing biz (Spader is wonderfully smarmy as Nicholson's stab-in-the-back protege) with unease as Jack senses his new powers. There is a suggestion that Nichols is trying to do a remake of his last film, Regarding Henry, which was about a struggling New Yorker who suffers a trauma which induces a bizarre medical condition that changes his life around. While Henry was fuzzy, however, Wolf is sharp: by far the best scenes are those with Nicholson playing off the sneaky Spader and the genially tyrannical corporate raider (Christopher Plummer) who has taken over the firm. All seriousness evaporates when a mystic expert gives Nicholson an amulet that staves off the curse (this is a rip-off of the magic flower in 1935's Werewolf Of London, which also had a similar make-up for its star monster). And for a big, expensive, much rewritten movie, this has a remarkably dull finish after a scrappy Wolf Man Meets. The Wolf Man dust-up, one of the stars simply walks off into the woods and disappears, while the other does that glowing-eyed curse-lives-on shtick that has been a howling cliche for the last 30 years.
This decent Australian family animation, about a werewolf boy who transforms into a fluffy poodle instead of a ferocious hound, zips along with plenty of zany action and some passable gags. But it looks cheap and the script might have been generated by a computer program that had been fed with plotlines from earlier, better kids’ films – the big debt is to The Lion King. As for the bland lessons about friendship and being yourself, even preschoolers must be rolling their eyes at this stuff by now.
Directed by Alexs Stadermann, 100% Wolf follows Ilai Swindells’ Freddy Lupin, the heir to a werewolf pack, as he’s forced to step up and prove himself after his werewolf alter ego turns out to be a far-from-threatening poodle. It’s a kid-friendly premise that’s employed to entirely innocuous (and progressively tedious) effect by Stadermann, as the filmmaker, working from Alexia Gates-Foale and Barbara Stephen’s screenplay, delivers a briskly-paced animated comedy that contains few elements designed to capture and sustain the interest of older viewers – with the colorful animation and strong voice work ultimately going a long way, at least initially, towards staving off one’s total boredom. The somewhat tolerable atmosphere takes a serious hit from a repetitive and hopelessly underwhelming midsection detailing Freddy’s exploits within a broadly-conceived pound, and there’s little doubt, as well, that the exhaustingly frenetic and frantic climax ensures that the whole thing ends on a decidedly interminable note – which does, in the final analysis, cement 100% Wolf‘s place as a mostly intolerable children’s film that admittedly might amuse very small (and undemanding) toddlers.
The story centres on Freddy Lupin, heir to the leadership of a proud family line of werewolves. Positive he’ll become the most fearsome werewolf ever, Freddy is in for a shock when on his 14th birthday his first “warfing” goes awry, turning him into a ferocious… poodle. Thrown a bone by the pack elders, Freddy has until the next moonrise to prove he has the heart of a wolf, or risk being cast out forever. With the help of an unlikely ally in a streetwise stray named Batty, Freddy must overcome his pink and fluffy exterior to prove he’s still 100% Wolf. A real good family film which will make you laugh out loud one minute and shed a tear the next. This film knows how to hit you in the heart at the beginning with an echo of Simba and Mufasa’s relationship and ending! My eight-year-old called it! He immediately got upset when he saw Freddy and his father having such fun “This is not going to end well” were his words! I don’t know if he’s picked up the critic in me or if he’s just seen one too many Disney movies to know a parent always gets it. The film fast-forwards 6 years to Freddy’s warfing, the first time he turns into a wolf, and it’s so important for him as he will become the leader of the pack. He steps into the moonlight only to be turned into a Poodle. The scene had us all laughing! Freddy believes the moon has cursed him for losing the moon ring the night he lost his father. We follow Freddy is his quest to find the moonstone. To add to Freddy’s worries, his uncle is as nasty and evil as another Uncle we all know and love to hate and is out to make sure Freddy never becomes the next pack leader! A story of misunderstanding others and building unlikely friendships, this is a great family film that all will love, and if you are a dog lover you will appreciate the finer details of the movie that encompass the essence of a dog right down to the scrapping the backside along the floor!
100% Wolf capitalises on familiar narrative threads to ensure that family fun is maintained. So get ready for familiar story elements from iconic films including The Lion King, How to Train Your Dragon and just a smattering of The Corpse Bride . By borrowing these elements, it ensures that it gets the young audience on board more easily. There’s also a lot of humour and heart pumped into 100% Wolf that works to disguise some of the weaker technical elements. The characters are cute enough for kids and grown-ups alike to fawn over, but it’s the really positive messages of believing in yourself and not judging people without getting to know them first, that make it so endearing. The desired result of 100% Wolf is to entertain the kids and whilst it might not be to older children’s tastes, it can (and did in this writer’s experience) keep the tinier ones enthralled.
100% Wolf is a 2020 Australian computer-animated adventure fantasy comedy film directed by Alexs Stadermann and produced by Alexia Gates-Foale and Barbara Stephen.Freddy Lupin is the young heir to a werewolf pack that has been protecting their local town for years. When he attempts to follow his family during their nightly patrol using a magical Moonstone, he inadvertently exposes the existence of werewolves to ice-cream truck owner Foxwell Cripp, and when Freddy's father, Flashheart Lupin, attempts to protect Freddy, Freddy ends up losing the Moonstone to Cripp and Flashheart is apparently killed when he falls off a cliff. With Flasheart dead, Freddy's uncle Hotspur becomes the new head of the werewolf clan, starting various new policies that include an increased dog-catching presence in the town, as werewolves have had a long history of disdain for dogs. Six years later, the time comes for Freddy to experience his first wolf transformation, but despite the encouragement of long-term housekeeper Mrs Mutton, he is humiliated when he turns into a dog (poodle, to be exact) instead. Faced with the disdain of his pack, Freddy is challenged to prove his wolf status by moonrise the next day or risk being banished. However, his efforts are curtailed from the beginning when Hotspur's children put a silver collar on him, preventing him turning back into human form, although he manages to escape the mansion.
