There are no werewolf transformation scenes. This movie made itself novel by creating a werewolf by implication. The man became a werewolf in skills, abilities, drives and instincts while retaining a human form. While ok I would not consider the star of the movie a "Pretty Man" which only added to the coolness of the picture. There is a weak sex scene in the movie for those of you that require such a thing. Being autistic I can live without sex scenes in my movies completely.
I liked that in his wild or feral mentality he never killed a innocent. While difficult he always kept a shread of his humanity and dignity. He did kill doctors and members of the sick twisted research facility and they did deserve to die. The coolest thing of all and what for me makes this movie a keeper is the ending. The ending of this movie is so nice it moves to the A LIST of my entire collection not just the best of the werewolf themed movies.
Personally I had to give this movie 5 stars because, it satisfied all my desires in a manner few others have.
Yeah, theres more than a little New Age-y spiritualism going on in there. But that said, its not a bad movie really. They actually hired Native American actors, for one, and had real wolves. And, unlike other movies, they didn't portray the wolves as especially evil or anything. The main thrust of this movie really seems to be man vs. nature, and while it wasn't especially scary or gorey as far as werewolf movies go, it at least was able to keep my interest. It also features Justine Bateman, who does a great job as the head of the hospital, trying to get our protagonist back. Its probably not the high point for the Man-Eater movies, but its still worth watching.
Hybrid is obviously inspired by the shirtless spate of werewolves now common to the Twilight. But unlike the Twilight series, or say, any other movie that involves werewolves, Hybrid has no special effects to speak of. But what it lacks in special effects, it makes up for with grainy stock footage of wolves. Seriously, fifty percent of this movie is just pictures of wolves biting, snarling, playing, and running. Sometimes they kill a buffalo.
Theoretically, this is a science fiction film about "cross-species organ transplants." When one scientist dares to challenge the logic of how this could possibly work, the response is "of course such a thing is impossible, which is why it works!" See what they did there? Clever, huh?
Our hero Aaron Scates (Corey Monteith) is the transplant recipient, and it's not long before he begins having wolf visions and wolf instincts, because it makes perfect sense that wolf eyes make you lupine.Read more ›
