When Bob and Charles reach the abandoned cabin, Bob finds a Winchester model 1886 rifle and 45-70 Gov't. cartridges and starts loading it. Although the cartridge caliber is correct for the rifle, the round nose bullets are not. .45-70 Gov't cartridges are rounded with a flat nose. See more »
[after successfully fighting a bear]
For all my life, I've have wanted to do something that was, um, that was unequivocal.
Well, Charlie, I certainly think this qualifies.
See, Charles, that's why they call it personal growth. A month ago, old Smokey here would've reared up, you probably would've called your lawyer!

Boy, here's an intense film, a survival-in-the-wilderness adventure/thriller starring the unlikely duo of Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin. It's not hard to guess who's the villain, in addition to a man-eating bear who stalks the two of them after their plane crashes in the woods of Alaska.
The sophistication of Hopkins, playing an extremely smart man, battling the crude Baldwin, who is insanely jealous of Hopkins' possessions, including his gorgeous wife (Elle McPherson), is intriguing to watch. So is the great scenery and best-of-all, a great action story that has you focused intently for the full two hours.
A human characteristic so often ignored in films the past half century is put on display here: compassionate forgiveness. Seeing forgiveness demonstrated instead of revenge is almost shocking to see. Kudos to the filmmakers, too, for not going overboard on the brutality in this adventure.
