This movie ranks among the best I have ever seen. It keeps you guessing. There is nothing cliche. It is an original. The 4 main characters are superb, and make the story very believable. I recommend Wildling to anyone and everyone who wants to see a movie that is both different and entertaining from start to finish. I will definitely watch this one again.
I like it a lot (by tranat71)
Overall, I like this movie a lot.But this is also my type of genre - Sci-Fi creatures, in this case the Wildlings, which look kind of like werewolves or lycans. So I can see why some people would not like this movie if they hate this type of movie. I don't think it's 100% original or 100% creative. But I think it was done right. It has great character development for the main character. I was rooting for this teen girl who happens to be a wildling. She didn't get to choose her family or who she is. She just takes what life has given her and does her best with it. In conclusion, I <more>
would say that this movie is 100% better than most Sci-Fi movies out there, so kudos to the director/writer of this movie.
I simply loved it. It was as mentioned by some before me, rather actually very predictable, this did however not ruin the movie experience for me the slightest.The acting was amazing, by the one and only Bel Powley, and of course Liv Tyler wasn't so bad either!The special effects were to no complaint, except maybe at one point towards the ending. Trying not to spoil anything! If you watch it, and as myself if a big fan of special effects, I'm sure you'll know what I'm talking about.Original, but predictable, very, HIGHLY enjoyable, and I definitely do recommend seeing this <more>
movie at least once. HOWEVER! If you are looking for a horror movie, this is not it. I'd call this more of a .. Mystery/fantasy-ish kinda movie. So as I said, don't expect to be spooked by this film, as it should not be classified as a horror. I say this with confidence as a horror-lover.
What a New and Fresh Take On... (by stokesy1012002)
Didn't want to give too much away on my Title so left the Werewolf bit off the end : This film is a fresh take on to any werewolf film and deserves a lot more credit than 5.8 IMDB score as of my review date!!At 1st and up to half way through I thought the 'Daddy' was just a perv and keeping her for sex which he probably did as well...But was to stop her from turning.I enjoyed the film from beginning to end and recommend it to anyone who wants to see something fresh and not done this way before Not that I can remember any way Solid 9 out of 10 for me.
Move over, Ginger Snaps. (by ariannafelidae-1)
I adore werewolf movies, so I'm going to be more biased and forgiving than someone looking for the next award-winner. Entertain me for an hour or two, that's all I ask.The tone of this movie is creepy from the get-go and even though you can put it together as you go along, the top-notch acting pulls you in and keeps you there. I was never bored waiting for something to happen.Bel Powley was absolutely brilliant in the lead role from start to finish and the make-up was so well-done. They went with practical effects and it is so appreciated!Ginger Snaps has been my go-to for the <more>
quintessential female coming-of-age werewolf film for years, now. This will need a few more viewings before I swap this one for that one, but I feel like there's finally a contender and I LOVE that.
Gave this movie 9 stars mostly for great originality. This movie broke all the rules and took chances and I love and appreciate that in an age of pathetic, recycled scripts. Also I didn't have to suffer through 90 minutes of CGI crap. I wish I could describe or compare the film in this review but there is really nothing to compare it to. Stranger Things meets The Howling meets Jennifer's Body told in Greek tragic style. The only reason this original dark drama didn't get a 10 from me is there seemed to be a missed opportunity for a little bit of levity or comedy in the 2nd act <more>
that could have lightened the somber mood a bit. Definitely worth a watch,
Honestly I loved it myself, but I can definitely see where others will be able to pick some things apart with this film. The movie is predictable, you'll figure it out after about ten minutes. Regardless of that fact, it still pulls you in from the very first moment. You will want to see it through to the end, I promise!Bel Powley really shines in this movie. Her acting is superb, and she portrays the character extremely well. Matter of fact she pretty much carries this film by herself. I've never seen any other movie she has been in, but after this, I can guarantee she is someone you <more>
will want to keep an eye on. The supporting cast did a really good job also. Do you want to be entertained, or do you just want to complain? Leave it all at the door, just watch it and be entertained. It's not meant to be the best film ever, and win hundreds of awards. I wouldn't so much call it horror, more of a thriller. I really liked the idea of the wildling creatures. I wish they had made the movie just a tad bit longer and fully played out some of the ideas that died towards the end. Overall the movie was good, nothing award winning, but definitely a movie to keep in the collection. Watch it, enjoy, don't overthink this.
It's hard to find a good fantasy movie that will give you satisfaction. But this one did, This movie is about a young girl who was found by a man in the cave. She was a wildling's child however she was a cute little baby. So that man brought her and raised her like his own child. He gave her.medicine to stop her growth.But time flies gradually she is changing.Now it's really hard to survive.I liked that movie very much. I think I will watch it again. You will never be bored if you watch this movie. You will enjoy every bit of it.
An effective new take on the Werewolf trope. (by Pairic)
Wildling: A new take on the Werewolf trope. Anna Bel Powley has been raised in a room by a man called Daddy Brad Dourif , he feeds her on a vegetarian diet and warns her about the Wildling that will try to get in to eat her. The window is barred and the door handle gives her electric shocks. Daddy injects Anna to prevent her menstrual cycle from developing, this makes her ill and eventually on her 16th birthday Daddy tries to commit suicide and Anna is discovered by Sheriff Ellen Cooper Liv Tyler , who fosters her while her relatives are sought.Anna befriends Cooper's teen brother Ray <more>
Collin Kelly-Sordelet and defends him when he is attacked by school bullies. Her strength is developing, her hearing is ultra-keen and new teeth are growing as she begins to eat meat, her periods start to appear. She chases a deer through the woods and encounters a character dressed in wolfskins James Le Gros , a Shaman like figure who helps her to adjust to the changes.This film has some faults, a couple of plot holes, but it is an effective Horror/Thriller with great acting by Bel Powley who at one moment is gentle and vulnerable and shortly afterwards bites a tormentors throat out. There is no swift change to the Wildling state, new teeth grow, nails lengthen, she becomes more hirsute. She longs to see the Aurora Borealis, wants to head North. She feels at home in the woods. Liv Tyler is effective as the empathic Sheriff and Dourif convinces as the conflicted Daddy. Production design, art direction, make up and effects all coalesce to crate an eerie dark feel, choreographed by Director and co-writer Fritz Bohm with Florian Eder who adds a new and powerful twist to the Lycantrophe legend in his debut film as director. 8/10.
