75
An eye-pleasing French action-slasher film that is cheerfully unencumbered by the usual conventions of stuffy costume drama.

Avoid it if you object to seeing people devoured by wolves, but see it if you want to howl at the moon.
50
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.
50
Lacks the one element that the filmmakers were most desperately aiming for: A genuine sense of fun.
30
If only Brotherhood of the Wolf had the wit and grace to match its exceptional physical beauty.
