'Teen Wolf : The Movie' Review: Tyler Posey starring film is perfect for a walk down the memory lane
Disclaimer: NO SPOILERS
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: In it's primetime, 'Teen Wolf' was one of the most watched TV show on MTV. A movie continuation featuring most of the old cast is about to drop and it is safe to say that the movie will take all the series fan to stroll down the memory lane. Beacon Hills, a place which is filled with Werewolves, Fox spirits, Banshees, Hell hounds and other mythical creatures is yet again in danger as seen in the movies trailer, and none other than the Alpha of the pack can save the pack.
As the 'Teen Wolf' series followed the life of Tyler Posey's Scott McCall, the new Paramount+ movie will highlight the character in a more mature life style. 'Teen Wolf: The Movie' will also serve as a starting point for an upcoming unrelated television series, 'Wolf Pack,' based on a novel by Edo van Belkom.
Let's jump right into it, 'Teen Wolf: The Movie' is a feel good movie for all the ardent viewers of the series. However, it didn't feel cinematic but it was a nice watch in case you want to have a walk down the memory lane. The starting of the movie is quite interesting as it depicts a grave danger is coming upon the supernaturals of the small California town. 'Teen Wolf: The Movie' tries to capture the magic of the original show, and it mainly could happen as many original cast members returned which definitely worked out for the Jeff Davis movie.
Speaking of the cast, starting from Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Shelley Hennig, to Dylan Sprayberry, Linden Ashby, Melissa Ponzio, and JR Bourne, everyone played their part beautifully while being true to their characters.
As promised, we won't give out any spoilers but we will ask you to grab a box of tissue before you reach the end of film, as the OG fans will most definitely shed a tear or two as the ending was very unexpected and shocking to some extent. The movie's cinematography and effects did lag a bit but as it is a film continuation of the series, it fits well.
The official synopsis of the film reads, "A full moon rises in Beacon Hills, and with it a terrifying evil has emerged. The wolves are howling once again, calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes, and every other shapeshifter in the night. But only a werewolf like Scott McCall, no longer a teenager yet still an Alpha, can gather both new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they've ever faced."
'Teen Wolf: The Movie' is scheduled to be released on Paramount+ on January 26, 2023.
