Hybrid: part of the Maneater series. Though I've only seen one other in this series, so far this was the worst of the two. A Male is given the eyes of a wolf in a medical transplant. Beyond any shadow of a doubt it was made for TV, Late Night TV at that. Wouldn't hold up in the theater. The Native America male played the best part. Glad I rented it as I hate to pay full price.
Pretty lousy movie. Only redeeming feature for me is that it was filmed in my home town, so I was able to recognize all the city scenes.
But parts of the movie, like the black dressed swat team wandering through the forest for what seemed like hours guns pointing was just terrible and boring.
Though it's true to say that there are a couple of bearable things in Hybrid, for the most part it's just regular-type terrible. Imagine making a really bad werewolf movie, and then taking out the part where there's a werewolf. Then you'll more or less have Hybrid.
It's part of the Maneater series but for the life of me I can't work out why, other than its being aired on the Sci-Fi channel they have virtually nothing in common. Hybrid decides that if it rips off The Eye, Hulk, Aliens and a nature documentary, it will churn out a movie that'll appeal to fans of The Twilight Saga. And maybe it would, but seeing as I don't fall into that category, Hybrid can fuck right off.
There's this kid from Glee in the lead role. He's not a werewolf, he's like, part-man, part-wolf. But the only part of him that's wolf is his eyes, which apparently means he can speak wolf and randomly attacks people and stuff, but he doesn't like, turn into a werewolf on a full moon or anything. He just jumps around and pretends he's native-American instead of white. He's very white.
There is of course the obligatory wise old Native-American who actually ISN'T white to make philosophical anecdotes about nature, spirit animals and the great circle of life, but it's so stupendously forced they may as well have not bothered. Honestly, Hybrid is one of the only movies I've reviewed that I've had to physically force myself to watch just for the sake of reviewing. There's a hundred flaws in the film but the worst of all is that it's just fuckboring! There's no point in entertainment that isn't entertaining.
Though I suppose there was physically room for it to get worse, sure, Hybrid is overabundant with genuine terribleness, watch out for this one, but by all means, don't watch it. Unless of course you happen to love American mysticism, bad films, nature documentaries that don't make sense, Twilight and Glee, of which, I'm sad to say there is probably a lot of.
