spoilers I guess... important note I can't explain stories..lol
This movie is buh-gawd awsome, Holy violently good times. An amazing mix of great kung-fu like fighting, brutal violence, beast/monsters scares, and 18th century women in pushed up breasts.
To top it all off our two heros look like Triple H (of course the top guy) and the Rock (as his ass kickin sidekick)
There is a beast that is terrorizing 18th century France at the time, killing women violently. Our 2 heros come in to investage and looked at the scares and said, it's no normal animal. So rumors start going around that it's a demon, so they go off on there way to caputre the beast. The area is frightened. They can't catch it, it's always seems to be one step ahead of them. Swervs a plenty afterwords.
Of course Triple H meets up with some important govermnents old farts hootie daughter and he wants to get with her but she plays hard to get. But I'm glad all of that took a back seat of him kicking ass and scary spots
Of course like all good movies, a swerve, a hero doing something he regrets, A big "damn U, noooo I'll get vengence my friend", there's a not so surprising heel turn, and Triple H no sold death, actually his hottie no sold death as well. Plus our hero Trips have an odd fasination of visiting french brothels for some reason at the worse possible time.
If you could still catch it at a rep theatre like I did, I suggest it big time, it's something that the small screen won't do it justice, the sound is amazing, the camera work is very cool, not just scenery but fighting scenes as well. Also big screen helps show us the full effect of the large chested french hotties.

I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
Well, welcome to the bandwagon, Net Hack Slasher. Fortunately, there's plenty of room although the best seats were taken a little while ago.
By the way, the password is as follows:
Le Pacte Des Loups
Brotherhood of the Wolves is not even a terribly good translation. Conspiracy of the Wolves would be closer, pacte being one of those tricky french words that translates equally well as agreement, conspiracy and group of conspirators, and somehow succeeds in meaning all of those things at the same time.
After reading Ebert's glowing review, I decided to check out "Frailty" Friday night. Although it doesn't live up to Ebert's hype, it's a pretty interesting flick. It's about a widower with two young kids.
