hm. Finally got around to actually watching “Wolfhound”
It is decent, in a ”Lady Hawk” sort of way. The CGI is minimal and done well enough not to be too jarring. And, many classic fantasy tropes are represented, and not done too poorly.
Princess with magic powers that needs saving? Yep.
Former slave out for revenge for the murder of clan? yeah.
Hero has a cute pet? yes, if you don’t mind it is a Fruit Bat in Medieval Russia.
Quirky Mini-troop of hero’s friends, all of them acquired through hero’s heroics? Yes.
Blind healer? Got one of those too.
Obvious evil guy is obviously going to backstab hero and princess? hm-hmmm.
That one guy you think is a villain turns out to be “ok” in the end? yeah.
Try to stop the ”Sealed Evil in a Can,” failing, but kick its Eldritch Abominable Ass Back into the hole it came from…. spot on.
"The Dragon" being more scary than said Abomination? Boy, howdy.
The movie pretty much is worth the $6 I spent on it. I was just lucky enough to stumble upon it at Slackers, I would’ve thought I’d have to order it special somewhere or find a way to pirate it. It is worth a later viewing.
