We Got This Covered - Lauren Humphries-Brooks
Buoyed by a strong cast, Wolves is a predictable yet powerful film that uses its multitude of sports movie and coming-of-age cliches to the best possible effect.

The A.V. Club - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
Most of the cast does a fine job of turning this hooey into something serviceable.
50
The New York Times - Neil Genzlinger
The actors do nice work before things derail.
50
Los Angeles Times - Michael Rechtshaffen
There’s plenty of predatory behavior on display in the impressively acted Wolves, a curious if unsuccessful cross-breeding of gritty domestic drama with conventional coming-of-age sports crowd-rouser.

Village Voice - Unnamed
There's real turmoil in Freundlich's script (abuse, a crumbling marriage, pregnancy) but the problems sometimes seem tacked on for added crisis.
