Instead of ripping humans limb from limb, the werewolves in this animated family adventure spend their evenings rescuing people from burning buildings and then disappearing into the night before they’re discovered.
It’s no wonder, then, that young Freddy Lupin is looking forward to his first transformation from boy into werewolf, but when it happens in front of all the elders in the pack, poor Freddy morphs not into a great lupine warrior but instead turns into a cute, fluffy poodle.
Alone and rejected, Freddy’s only hope is to find a special moonstone that has fallen into the hands of a scheming local businessman, and his adventure to become a true werewolf teams him with a scrappy dog who doesn’t know Freddy’s true identity.
While this movie’s plot owes a hefty debt to films ranging from The Lion King to Hotel Transylvania, it romps along from the opening to the end credits and has some fun moments that will make both young kids and adults chuckle.
The computer animation is bright and showcases some fast-paced action sequences that should keep little ones entertained, and the message that you should be who you are and accept people’s differences is nicely delivered.
Is 100% Wolf suitable for kids? Here are our parents’ notes...
This is a movie about werewolves so there are scenes when they are howling which may scare younger children.
At the beginning of the movie, we see a young boy and it appears he is being chased by wolves, but it turns out to be Freddy following his own family.
Freddy is often in danger, and some children may find his uncle, and the other people who want to catch Freddy, a bit scary.
This is probably best suited to children over the age of 7.
