Leo Fafard in WolfCop (2014)

The Fuzz

Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) is not exactly the poster boy for the law agency, his erratic drive to work is due to being hung-over, he is late for his job and often ends up in a bar in his uniform getting drunk. But then on one of his rare excursions to actually do his job he finds more than he bargained for when he heads up to the woods of reports of satanic worshiping going on. The next day Lou starts to encounter strange things, he shaves but it grows back in seconds, he can hear things from miles away as well as smell things others can. But with a series of crimes going on Lou finds himself and his new abilities coming in to play.

"WolfCop" is the sort of movie which many a movie fan loves; it isn't because it is very good or highly original but because it manages to make the most obvious things entertainment. Basically "WolfCop" is a classic b movie which finds the sweet spot when it comes to playing the comedy of being bad and ridiculously daft without ending up too much like a spoof movie. As such this is one of those movies which can deliver the graphic action of a man becoming a werewolf but find the comedy of seeing various parts transform or then one minute go from horror to the humour of Lou waking up in bed wearing fluffy pink handcuffs not to forget an amusing sex scene.

The thing is that "WolfCop" isn't a one trick wolf as we also have a storyline with local corruption going on as well as plethora of supporting characters all of which are surprisingly well acted. But all these things back up the movie's focus of Leo Fafard's spot on performance as Lou, from his don't care attitude as a drunk cop to the transformation into wolf cop. When Lou is in the library and he shouts out "do you have any books on devil worship" it is so spot on with that "don't give a f#ck" attitude of his character.

What this all boils down to is that "WolfCop" sounds like a bad b-movie but it is one which gets the right mix of bad with funny so that the daftness of the movie ends up a whole lot of fun and more than just a series of set pieces.
