What a Great Movie
16 June 2002 | by (Norfolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite titles from the "Bigfoot Genre". It features some great acting by some underrated actors. David Rasche is wonderfully evil as the money-hungry Chaz Fredrick, his ambition to capture Bigfoot and place the creature on display reminds me of real-life millionare Tom Slick. Rance Howard (Ron Howard's brother) plays Fredrick's clueless and loveable sidekick account. I especially like the part where Howard discusses the "Bigfoot escrow account" with the townspeople.

Zachery Ty Bryan could have been better, in fact, I think he failed to connect with Bigfoot, and instead treated the legendary creature as a guy in a suit. Bigfoot himself was too comical in this movie. I was hoping for a slightly more violent creature, especially when he gets captured. Also deserving acclaim is Matt McCoy, who plays Ranger Nick Clifton.
