Critic Reviews for Wolves

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (9)

It's all terribly cliché-ridden and predictable, and the best I can say for it is that Shannon and Gugino do their best to convince us otherwise.

Freundlich clearly likes to dig in deep with this kind of character material, and here it pays off in ways it really hasn't in some of his previous feature work.

Top Critic

A curious if unsuccessful cross-breeding of gritty domestic drama with conventional coming-of-age sports crowd-rouser.

Top Critic

A modestly pleasing, unsurprising indie about a family undone by anger issues.

It's as if Bart Freundlich, who wrote and directed, loses confidence in the performances and decides he'd better throw in every cliché in the genre.
