Skinwalkers ★ 2007 (PG-13)

Timothy (Knight) is about to turn thirteen when he discovers that he, like his dead father, uncle, and extended family, is a werewolf— not a bad werewolf, but a good werewolf that fights bad werewolves. Plus, there's a mysterious prophecy about him, so he and Uncle Jonas (Koteas) must go on the run to avoid bad werewolf Varek (Behr) and his crew of motorcycle-riding henchmen. Embarrassing howler (despite Koteas's decent performance) sanitizes the lycanthropic sex and violence for the adolescent set, and the results are dull and silly. 110m/C DVD . USCA GE Jason Behr, Elias Koteas, Rhona Mitra, Matthew Knight, Kim Coates, Tom Jackson, Barbara Gordon; D: James Isaac; W: James DeMonaco, James Roday, Todd Harthan; C: Adam Kane, David Armstrong; M: Barbara Carrera, Andrew Lockington.
