Brotherhood of the Wolf
Provided by Metacritic.com
The picture shatters all genre conventions.
It's easily the most disarming and inventive movie made for genre geeks in years.
I would be lying if I did not admit that this is all, in its absurd and overheated way, entertaining.
New York Daily News
An eye-pleasing French action-slasher film that is cheerfully unencumbered by the usual conventions of stuffy costume drama.
The perfect film for anyone who likes their headbutting and kickboxing dressed up in gold brocade, frilly collars, and tri-cornered caps. And isn't that all of us?
At 140 minutes, the film becomes a humorless, long-winded spectacle.
It's mindless, which is rarely true of French cinema, dull, which is rarely true of Hong Kong films, and portentous, which shouldn't be true of any film about a man-eating dog.
Lacks the one element that the filmmakers were most desperately aiming for: A genuine sense of fun.
New York Magazine (Vulture)
An exuberantly garish French movie.
Wall Street Journal
If only Brotherhood of the Wolf had the wit and grace to match its exceptional physical beauty.
