Just rented a pretty cool Russian fantasy movie called "Wolfhound" today. Has anyone else seen it? In some ways, I thought it had a pretty good Midnight vibe. I was impressed with the sets, the atmosphere and the action scenes, as well as with most of the acting... but only once I watched it in the original language, with English subtitles! The dubbed option was pretty bad (as usually is the case).

Here is a trailer, if anyone's interested in checking it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_L0XGnsl24I.

Ohh I saw  the trailer of it ages ago, but never the movie.

Movie is based on the book of same name. It's a Russian fantasy, so it's a lot different than the usual ones. Books are much better than the movie.

That I have no doubt. But having not read the book, I can say that the subtitled version of the movie was quite enjoyable. I was impressed by the production values, and the really dark/gritty feel of the movie. I'm curious as to what the budget for this film was, and how well it did in Europe and other parts of the world, as, to my knowledge, it is virtually unknown here in Canada.

If Russia keeps putting out fantasy films of this caliber, then I look forward to future releases, and who knows... maybe even their eventual overthrow of Hollywood?
