Storyline

Based on actual accounts, The Untold is the story of Harlan Knowles, billionaire and President of Bio-Comp Industries who heads up a team of experts in a quest to locate a company plane that disappeared over the remote forests of the Pacific Northwest. Knowles is obsessed with finding the plane and rescuing his daughter, who was one of its passengers. The assembled team includes local guide Clayton Tyne, renowned wilderness expert and author Winston Burg and the beautiful Marla Lawson. Soon, the team begins to suspect that Knowles' main objective is actually to recover the prototype of a DNA testing machine called the Huxley Project, which his company has spent years and millions of dollars developing. After finding the plane and its crew torn to shreds, the group tries to piece together clues about what could be responsible for the carnage. With the help of the Huxley prototype they discover they are facing a menace whose very existence is one of the world's greatest mysteries and ... Written by Anonymous

Badly written and directed
22 March 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Look, I'm not one who automatically looks down on low-budget genre movies. In fact, I watch them all the time. But there's little positive I can say about this movie. The cinematography is okay, the locations look nice, and... well, that's all for the positive.

Now the negative. Hoo boy. It mainly boils down to a terrible script and aggressively annoying directing. First, the script. To put it bluntly, almost NOTHING of real consequence happens up until near the end. Most of the movie just consists of the characters wandering around, sensing something is out there, and blurting out various theories. What's surprising is that even though there is a lot of nothing, often when there is some important explanation it it left unfinished (probably more due to the editing, which is unbelievably inept at times). Sometimes whole sequences are missing. In fact, these and other lapses suggest the shoot had problems and the production wasn't able to shoot everything that was planned.

And the directing... well, as others have said, there is the annoying fade-to-black that seems to happen every four minutes, the images being manipulated by unfocusing and other techniques that make you utter confused as to what's happening, badly chosen camera angles, no sense of tension, no feeling of struggle, etc. etc. I could go on, but you get the idea.

A number of people have claimed that no movie involving Sasquatch has been any good. While I can't claim to have seen every such movie, this movie certainly adds considerable fuel to the argument. If you want to see a low budget movie about people stranded in the wilderness who are attacked by hairy creatures, I strongly recommend you instead watch the vastly entertaining "Dog Soldiers".
