Apocalypse Now 2 : Winding up on the Windigo
10 September 2002 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

I saw just a part of this movie and it hit me how much the "going up the river" part reminded me of Apocalypse Now: a small group of people in a small boat, going into a hostile backcountry to meet a renegade, a man who rejected his superior's orders to live in a place where he is the law and nothing is like anywhere else. And the narrator slowly but surely builds up his portrait of this character which he will finally meet. I did not see the end, but I wouldn't even be surprised to learn that the narrator kills Eddy in his chambers as a moose is ritually slaughtered outside.

Apart from that, it was okay, but not good enough to make me watch it entirely.
