This poster is amazing. Gotta get that out of the way. The Cobra homage is flawlessly done.
Let's talk about the first WolfCop, well, first. I tried to watch it with some friends when it first came out, and I don't know whether we were too drunk to get into it, but we gave up after like 15 minutes.
A few months later I tried it again and really liked it. Ended up getting it on Blu-ray. It's got tons of gore, a fun sensibility, and you know how when you go to the strip club and the bartender's always the hottest girl in the place, but she doesn't get naked? In this movie, SHE DOES.
The question, as always with sequels, is can they expand upon the idea from the original enough that it entertains those who like the first film, but not stray so far that alienates those same people. Do it right and you get Aliens, but do it wrong and you get Alien3.
We open on a TV studio shooting a commercial for a drink called Chicken Milk Stout, whose slogan is "Slam a Cock." It's amusing, but a disorienting way to start. Don't worry though, it comes around pretty fast in the next scene as WolfCop takes down some robbers by more or less ripping off their limbs and eating them.
The craziness continues because even before the credits, you get to see WolfCop's Wolfcock, and then gore, boobs, and goofiness commence with little quarter given.
The plot is basically the same as Halloween 3. The company behind the Chicken Milk Stout is spreading it through the town of Woodhaven, because when people who have imbibed it are exposed to a device that looks like a kid's toy from a carnival, freaky bulbous-headed things pop out of their stomach and kill them. You may be asking why the company does this, and if you are, then maybe this movie isn't for you.
I could talk about the performances of the actors, but nobody's coming to this film for the acting (which is fine, by the way). People are coming to this for the WolfCop , and you get plenty of that here.
There's also a sort of Terminator guy that kills a bunch of people at a strip club and then disappears for the rest of the movie. There's another werewolf fuck scene, though it's VERY different from the first (and with another song by Gowan that's not as good as "Moonlight Desires"). There's Kevin Smith as the mayor (yes, THAT Kevin Smith). There's hockey-playing WolfCop versus a "not human" team of ruffians.
This movie is batshit crazy is what I'm saying. The special effects range from pretty good to pretty bad – there's one makeup that's REALLY bad, and it's sort of spoilery, so I won't go into it – but fans of the first one will know what they're getting into, and should enjoy this even though it's not as entertaining as the first.
Grab some brews and/or smoke some pot, and Another WolfCop should entertain you and friends for 80 minutes.
