There's much to recommend in this film, including taut pacing, a thriller premise, and an appealing lead character with a powerful set of ears. Plentiful naval jargon makes the plot feel both authentic and, in some instances, incomprehensible, but in general the action moves forward at a good clip and the simple task of preventing world-wide nuclear war is clear enough for all to understand. The Wolf's Call may be too confusing for younger teens, but given that many video games are more violent, blood and guts won't be too intense for those old enough to follow the plot turns. Older teens will understand the subtleties and mixed emotions of those who must destroy their friends in order to prevent world-wide destruction and death.
