Some may say that only a guy could enjoy Brotherhood of the Wolf (Le Pacte des Loups); after all, the movie contains lots of guy elements: gore, martial-arts, and werewolves. But, there's more to this movie than blood and guts, and although it has its flaws, it's worth seeing. There are many aspects of this movie that make it both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually stimulating, as well as a bloody thriller. The scenery and costumes are gorgeous, there are some great martial arts scenes, and the sound effects provide an intriguing element that adds to the movie's depth. Also, the audience is forced to really think about who the bad guys are, and there are no easy answers.
The movie does have its flaws, though none can be characterized as fatal. It was hard to believe, for example, that Mani, an Iroquois Indian could be an expert martial artist in the 18th century. Also, slow-motion shots were used so often that they became tedious, and the movie seemed to run on about twenty minutes too long. Finally, the movie delivers too much information to the audience. There are things we just didn't need to know, and that didn't contribute to the overall story and effect.
