This delirious experience covers most bases and makes at least a cursory stab at the few it misses.

A period French martial-arts movie that puts the "where?" in wolf films.

Looking Closer
January 15, 2005
The hero feels free to sleep with any prostitute, even as he's wooing the one he calls his 'true love.' Isn't there a conflict of interest there?

A 17th century French costume drama where everybody is Kung-fu fighting - with some highly watchable results!

Guaranteed to make you howl at the moon on your way out.

David Keyes
December 18, 2002
A stylish, smart, edgy, exciting and involving trek though familiar folklore, often better than the masses have been told and even more appealing after repeat viewings.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

Film Threat

The film has a wonderful style and a sense of movement that barely slows down for its two and a half hours.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You
November 5, 2002
Brotherhood of the Wolf supplies enough to satisfy many tastes without overwhelming them. It is one of the most sporadically inspired films of recent memory; and I would say, prematurely, of all time.
October 29, 2002
'Magnífica oportunidad para poder apreciar otro tipo de cine de acción que no provenga de Hollywood, donde la calidad está peleada con la taquilla y la maquinaria generadora de dólares.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

If The Brotherhood of the Wolf has a reason for being, it may be only to prove that the French can make movies as silly, blood-soaked and overblown as the Americans.

It's the best darned French werewolf kung-fu movie I've ever seen. That's not saying much.

A wonder of magpie postmodernism, a samurai adventure with Hong Kong action and a wry touch of American Western, all sewn into a free interpretation of Gallic history that also has its finger on the pulse of current social trends.

Blends too many genres to be easily described, but whatever it is, it's awesome!

The damnedest thing I've seen since the Siegfried and Roy 3-D Imax movie.

Laramie Movie Scope

A big, sprawling adventure yarn that's a lot more like a Hollywood film than a European film ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Larry Carroll

...has better action scenes, a superior love story, and more interesting characters (than "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon").

Ozus' World Movie Reviews
April 10, 2002
A post-Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon styled film, that is not a good film as much as it is an unusual one.

Instead of fluid acrobatics, we get hyperbolic montages of kicking feet, somersaulting torsos, and fists connecting with faces.
