All of Manhattan is quarantined when the Lupine virus spreads like wildfire, turning innocent civilians into ravenous wolf-men. Nothing short of a nuclear blast can stop the monstrous virus.

All of Manhattan is quarantined when the Lupine virus spreads like wildfire, turning its' innocent civilians into violent wolves..but that's the least of its' worries as a rogue General uses the virus to create an army for other means.

I was really surprised upon watching Battledogs. To be honest, I was expecting The Asylum's usual fare(thin plot, decent CGI, fair amount of action). Yet, I was really surprised to see that Battledogs stepped up things a notch. Course, lately--I've been seeing that The Asylum have been putting alot more effort in the films they've been making for the SyFy Channel. While I don't know what's spurred them to do that, I am thankful that they're going in a more positive direction with their films. I can't wait to see their future endeavors. I've told everyone that, at some point, people are going to start looking at The Asylum as a more legitimate filmmaking company than the mockbuster maker that everyone complains that they are. If people were to look at their catalogue of films, they have a great deal of originals that are great films. Battle Dogs is a film that takes hold of its' plot and uses its' limited budget to create something original and fun for everyone to watch. I was so impressed with Battledogs that I hope The Asylum & SyFy Channel continue the story with Battledogs 2.

The only gripe that I had with Battledogs seems to be the same gripe that reviewers on the internet have been harping about...the design of the Battledogs themselves. How, you say? Well- even though the overall design of the creatures are fine for this type of film- other than different colors for the fur, they use basically the same CGI model for every one that you see on camera. I don't really mind it too much as low-budget films tend to do that.

Battledogs is one of The Asylum's upper tier of films and it shows. I highly recommend you give Battledogs a good looksee. It's a great film for lovers of the genre and then some.

While BATTLEDOGS isn't a great film, it's one of SyFy/The Asylum's better offerings. It has a cast of more reputable actors and the effects are better than usual. Plotwise, it's typical government misbehavior vs. moral assignation, but I found it interesting and involving. Dennis Haysbert from 24, THE UNIT and All State commercials is a convincingly pompous villain, nicely supported by Kate Vernon, Craig Sheffer, Ariana Richards, Wes Studi and Ernie Hudson. I viewed BATTLEDOGS on the SyFy Channel so its upcoming DVD release may be more enjoyable to watch without commercial interruption.

Asylum Films (in conjunction with the SyFy Channel) are notorious for creating monstrously bad creature features. Whether producing cheap imitations of movies currently in theaters (mockbusters) or coming up with the next awesome genetic hybrid, the best Asylum films can be relied on for a chuckle or two. The worst, however, can be absolutely painful. "Battledogs" is somewhat surprising, it plays as a straight werewolf saga as opposed to something distinctly more wacky. This makes it better than most of Asylum's efforts, and also somewhat less fun. It's not really until the second half that "Battledogs" embraces an over-the-top lunacy that really entertains. What this film does offer, however, is a better cast than you might expect. Not only does it have decent actors, they are actually given the opportunity to try to develop more complex characters. Imagine that! What a novelty for a SyFy movie. The cast includes Craig Sheffer, Dennis Haysbert, Kate Vernon, Ernie Hudson, Ariana Richards, Wes Studi, and Bill Duke.

The conceit of the movie is that it treats a werewolf uprising as if it's a viral outbreak. I liked how the movie kicked off its plot. Patient Zero (Richards, who happens to be that little girl from Jurassic Park), so to speak, arrives in a New York airport feeling a bit under the weather. Before she can even collect her luggage, she turns into a big beastie and savages the other travelers. This sets off a chain reaction as many of the attack victims convert to werewolf status. The airport is quarantined and it's time for the experts to take over. Vernon plays a scientist from the CDC, Sheffer is a military investigator, and Haysbert plays the requisite military psycho who sees the potential in weaponizing the disease.

BATTLEDOGS

I love The Asylum and for the most part have loved the films. Of course there is the occasional one that even I can't find a silver lining in. luckily this is one of the better Asylum movies and it is a werewolf flick on top of that, who doesn't like a werewolf flick. This was a film they made with the SyFy channel like they do most of the time. It actually is a cool little flick that while not perfect is still fun.

A woman named Donna has just arrived in New York and is not feeling very well after her flight. Unfortunately for her she was bitten by a wolf elsewhere and has brought the virus back with her. She turns at starts to attack others at the airport creating pandemic of werewolf proportions. This naturally brings in the authorities who lock the infected and everyone that was there down. Major Brian Hoffman wants to find a cure for these poor people but his superiors have other things in mind.

I have to say that I was kinda surprised by how they played this out. They took this flick a little more serious than they normally do. The first half of this movie is straight up more serious than most things they have done lately while the second half turns into a more fun ride. Shane Van Dyke [a writer on "Chernobyl Diaries"] came up with a cool little idea here treating werewolves like a virus outbreak. Debuting Director Alexander Yellen did a good enough job here that I will be looking for more films from this person in the future.

Craig Sheffer, Dennis Haysbert, Ernie Hudson, Kate Vernon, Ariana Richards and more all do a good job here bringing the characters to life. Speaking of characters something that you normally don't get in these types of flicks is character development. I am glad to say that you get a bit of that here.
