Critic Reviews for The True Adventures of Wolfboy

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

A throwback movie, equal parts Stephen King and "Stranger Things"... bearing a learn-to-love-thyself message adults know all too well, but which could save (or at least ameliorate) a few young people's lives.

Though otherwise competently assembled, this might work best as a rainy Saturday afternoon option for undemanding audiences flicking through the options of the on-demand platform of their choice.

Features a compelling setup and a likable protagonist who goes on a journey that slightly meanders, but comes full circle as it reaches its climax.

October 26, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Krejcí's film possesses the necessary weight and purpose that allows its palatable genre trappings to deliver its morals to an audience that may otherwise avoid them.

October 14, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A fairytale set amidst a grimy backdrop of burlesque clubs, carnival freak shows, and abandoned lighthouses, The True Adventures of Wolfboy is a dark yet darling gem.

And while the direction by Martin Krejcí keeps the movie alive and bright, it's the story structure and characters written by Olivia Dufault that elevate the material beyond the familiar.
