The first hour of “Project Wolf Hunting” is a non-stop bloodshed…and so is the second hour. There’s hardly any rest here, and it’s starting to get tiring. However, to keep things interesting, the second half of the film introduces an entirely new twist: a sort of Frankenstein Monster creature is being tested in the ship’s guts. If you guessed that the monster got loose and started frantic against the criminals, you are correct.
This concept – inhuman monsters compared to human monsters – is pretty neat! But “Project Wolf Hunt” never quite achieved what it was going for. What’s more, the series introduces all kinds of myths that give the whole feel of a TV series turned into a feature film. Maybe they’re trying to set up a sequel or an entire franchise. Maybe not. All I know is that the film’s unlimited bloodshed is starting to get tiresome. How can you make so much gore that it’s uninteresting?
But maybe I was thinking too much about everything. Admittedly, the stellar action coupled with abundant realistic gore is really all that “Project Wolf Hunting” cares about. If so, it was a complete success. But personally I would appreciate a bit more brains to go with all the blood and lap.
