What beast roams Gevaudan?

  • Aug 17, 2009

Brotherhood of the Wolf is a film loosely based upon a local French legend that happened during the 18th century. A Frenchman and his Canadian-Indian buddy are in the area to find out if the legend about a giant beast is true or not. But what they uncover has to be even stranger than anything they could have ever imagined. Is the legend true?  What kind of beast roams the countryside slaughtering the innocent viliagers?  Can these two strangers put a stop to the brutal killings?  Who is that mysterious hot woman?  Check out The Brotherhood of the Wolf to find out.

This has to be the ultimate French action film. Not only is the direction superb but the action director Phillip Kwok stages some of the best fights that I have seen in awhile. How can you go wrong with state of the art violence and a naked Monica Bellucci? You can't. Besides Dobermann, this has to be the best French action flick around. This movie has everything you can ever want in an action film. The direction is fluid, photography is excellent and the editing is sharp and edgy.
