The movie begins when farmer Adam Wilson (portrayed by Jack Campbell) discovers an almost entire flock of sheep has been viciously annihilated by what appears to be a wild animal. Having serious debts, after their farm has been generating less and less income for the past six months, the problems become increasingly hard, soon after their creditor appears, to collect the debt, or relocate them by force.
After expelling the man from their home, the first aggressions begins, being the creditor the first victim of the attacks, turning himself into an easy prey, when stopping by an isolated road, to urinate. Soon after, when the wild dogs surround the farm in its entire location, the animals organize a massive attack against the family, which becomes isolated in their own house. After more and more wild dogs appear, the family members have to unite themselves as a team, to do their best effort to fight hard and survive.
Nonetheless, if you have a little patience, you will see how good this movie is. Product of a professional team, great cinematography, excellent photography, believable and credible acting, a decent and coherent plot, realistic moments and plausible situations that could happen in real life, are all elements reasonably combined well, which makes The Pack a good film. You may not be impressed at all with this movie, but you can see for yourself that it has, indeed, very strong points in its favor. Which is good, in a genre with mostly disappointing results.
Despite the positive result, it becomes impossible to give this movie a great score, since, by the other hand, it isn’t able to overcome its flaws. Being trapped in its own atmosphere of a predictable conclusion, with little more to offer, you will be bored, and wishing not to see the movie until the end, at certain moments. Conclusively, The Pack is a good movie, but just another good movie. You will have fun, but will forget about it, one minute after it is finished. But for its competent team and compelling devices, deserves a score of three and half stars.
