It's an experiment in human behavior. It's an exploration of the most natural of animal impulses. It's something new under the moon. And it bites. When security dispatcher Aaron Scates is blinded in an explosion, he's put in the care of Dr. Andrea Hewlitt, famous in her field for spearheading extraordinary-though controversial-medical breakthroughs. Her newest is cross-species organ transplants, and Aaron is her first human subject. When a severely wounded wolf is brought to Dr. Hewlitt's office by museum curator Lydia Armstrong, Dr. Hewlitt leaps on the opportunity and successfully transplants the wolf's eyes to Aaron-despite Lydia's objections. Aaron, however, is thrilled. Not only can he see again, he can see in the dark. He also has an unusually acute sense of hearing, and tears into a raw steak like never before. Unfortunately, he also tends growl, and to target people as prey. Lydia knows why. Knowing Aaron is in danger-to himself and to others -Lydia confesses that she too is a cross-breed but has learned to channel her feral instincts into a source of strength, not violence, with the help of her shaman friend, Claude Robertson. After Lydia and Aaron explore their other animal instincts in the privacy of Lydia's lair, she takes him to Claude's for a rite-of-passage to integrate the young man's spirit with that of a wolf. But Dr. Hewitt's colleagues, who have seen Aaron's wilder side, are determined to hunt the beast down and destroy him. What they don't know is that Aaron has more on his side than a shaman and an empathetic girlfriend. He's made some new friends at the zoo. They travel in packs. And they don't need a full moon to commune. Like Wolfen, The Howling, and An American Werewolf in London before it, Hybrid delivers a snarlingly sharp twist on the werewolf genre for an all new generation of animal lovers. —Y.
Wolf or Man
Now this one did have a very interesting concept at the very beginning,, you get blinded,, and lose you're sight,, would you rather be blind rest of you're life,, or get some cool looking wolf eyes,, well heck the answer is easy ,, you go for the wolf eyes, right,, well as the movie progresses our character should have stayed blind,, he starts to develop strange wolf like behavior during the movie,, like howling,, trying to attack people,, he wants to start running with the pack and all of that good stuff, you gotta love the color of those wolf eyes, those very kewl,, what i didn't care for is the use of the stupid military in this movie again,, ihate when Hollywood has to bring in the military for a needless reason,, yeah the movie is hokey in spots sure,, and Justine Bateman is great in here also i thought,, a watchable movie indeed.
