James Isaac (2006)

15 Certificate


Our Score
There's absolutely no bite in Jason X director Jim Isaac's slimly plotted and extremely underwhelming tale of two warring werewolf packs and a boy who holds their future in his hands. A bland and virtually bloodless bore, it revolves around good-guy "skinwalkers" (a translation of the Navajo term for lycanthropes) trying to protect Rhona Mitra and her almost 13-year-old son (an obnoxious Matthew Knight) from their evil counterparts who want the boy dead. Disappointingly for a film about wolf folk, this means lots of running away, punctuated by flat and laughable gunfights, and horribly clunky dialogue. What little teeth-and-claw action there is, is so badly lit that you can't see it properly anyway - though that's probably a blessing, given how poor the effects and creature make-up actually are. The one saving grace is a slumming-it Elias Koteas, whose solid performance, as Mitra's tragically noble brother-in-law, provides the only air of realism.


A 12-year-old boy discovers that his family are werewolves who seek to regain their humanity - and that a prophecy predicts he will have the power to bring this about on his 13th birthday. However, another group of werewolves revel in their bloodthirsty nature and hope to kill the youngster before he can put an end to their kind. Horror thriller, starring Rhona Mitra and Jason Behr.
