Main Plot Points:
- Recently released from prison and cast out by his family, young kickboxer Majid (Marwan Kenzari) sees few opportunities to better himself in the grim suburb of the Netherlands he calls home. Deciding to put his talents as a fighter to use, he enters a boxing gym owned by Ben (Raymond Thiry), who quickly spots Majid s raw talent and starts to coach him in the techniques needed to enter the ring while also instilling in him the discipline and respect a true fighter needs.
- But as Majid’s notoriety both in and out of the fighting circuit begins to grow, he finds himself confronted with his criminal past and the world of organized crime that s threatening to take over his community. Grittily stylish, Wolf is a hard-hitting exploration of one warrior s quest for redemption.
What We Thought:
- Wolf is a pretty decent crime drama.
- It’s not overly original or anything, but it wasn’t bad. We’ve seen lots of down on their luck guys turning to other ways of making money. I did like the scenes of the MMA fighting though.
- It reminded me of a lot of other movies. The Easy Money franchise comes to mind especially the third one.
- I’m not familiar with any of the leads in it. It’s a foreign film so I doubt you’ll know them either.
- But it’s a believable enough story and well made film. You get just enough to understand the characters and the story.
- Wolf is good. It’s not great. It will remind you of a lot of other movies. It’s a familiar story with some decent fighting just don’t expect anything groundbreaking.
