[Review by cornholio.]
Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) is a cop in the small town of Woodhaven, but also an alcoholic and a werewolf. Even though he likes to spend most of his time alternately getting drunk and nursing hangovers, crime doesn’t sleep. And when a mysterious, probably alien plot unfolds in Woodhaven, that involves a impregnating beer from a microbrewery, it’s up to Lou to save everybody.
I wasn’t particularly taken with the first WolfCop and this one repeated all the mistakes of the first film and had the additional disadvantage of not being a new idea anymore.
I had only a dim recollection of the first film when I saw this one (I considered re-watching the first in preparation, but then didn’t, I just didn’t like it enough to do that), so I can’t really say how the two compare. I did get the distinct impression that Another WolfCop was a lot more over the top than WolfCop, and that would have generally been a direction I’d appreciate the film to take.
Unfortunately they still didn’t do any of the groundwork necessary to make the over-the-top part work. Sure, why not include aliens in a werewolf film? I can take it. Hell, I can see this going to very fun places indeed. But why should I take it if I’m not invested in any of the characters and if the film is just one joke repeated over and over again?
I don’t know and neither does the film. But it does spend an awful lot of its short runtime on furry sex between the werewolf and a werecat (Serena Miller). If that’s the height of comedy for you, or if, by all means, it turns you on, then Another WolfCop is the film for you. If it does nothing for you, you better stay away.
I, for one, fled into blissful sleep and slept through a bit of the film. A flight I don’t regret for a single second.
Summarizing: Leave it.
