After Tarantino's endorsement I was excited to see what Bad Wolves had in store. Turns out, not much. This is a interrogation/torture film that leaves you wanting more of both. While this may come across as a True Detective (S.1) meets Taken, it ends before it ever really begins and tries to answer its 1.5 hr question in the last 5 seconds. Just not cool! Lacked vital story and character development.
The ending sucked
Quentin Tarantino said “Big Bad Wolves” was the best film of 2013 and it’s easy to see why - “Big Bad Wolves” is very similar to a Tarantino movie. There aren’t many scares (except in the beautiful first scene) but there’s enough brutality to warrant the film being on here. This is probably one of the darkest comedies that manages to still succeed as a comedy.
Disturbing and powerful. A great movie.
