      StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 24 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Low-edge story with generic characters. The plot doesn't really get anywhere, and the whole shapeshifting subplot isn't expanded on much. Awful computer imagery, and some cringing dialog. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member When I saw the cover to the film "Shifter" I thought I was going to be in for some family friendly werewolf movie... I hadn't realised it was actually the Pulsepounders release of Shapeshifter that I had seen so many years before. So instead of some silly werewolf movie I was treated again to a spy thriller involving ancient religions, magic, music and SHAPESHIFTING! Not at all what I was expecting going in but fun and entertaining throughout thanks to some amazing cheese! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Dette tror jeg er den dummeste filmen jeg noen gang har sett! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I only watched the whole movie because it was so lame that it was funny. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member OMG can hollywood get any worse? :( Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
