Is It Any Good?
This is a so-so sequel, if overlong and overly complicated. Teen Wolf: The Movie runs for two hours and ten minutes, and it could have certainly used some editing. There's a central storyline that's easy enough to follow, with plenty of easter eggs for those familiar with these characters in their past teen lives. There are also various subplots and confusing talk about the bad forces, which are either called "the Oni" or "the Notsune," and maybe they're both evil, but it's confusing if you're not a fan already.
While the action is brisk, the acting is often inconsistent. Some are better than others. The villain (or are they?) who goes around shooting the werewolves with their bow and arrow sounds bored most of the time. It's a mostly fun, if uneven and overly long, tale that's probably best for the fans.
