A real obscurity!
29 October 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

When I found a copy of this movie (under the title "Buzzard") at my local thrift store (still wrapped in its original plastic wrap!), I though I had found a movie so unknown that no one at the IMDb would have previously written about it. As you can see, I was wrong, but I'm still pretty sure that there can't be that many people who know about this obscurity. It's a strange movie - it barely gets past the hour mark before ending, for one thing. It has Dean Cain in a real early role that I'm pretty sure he doesn't list on his resume. And while the title of the movie puts the character of the buzzard in it, the buzzard does almost nothing that influences the human characters, spending most of its time making a bunch of wisecracks on the soundtrack that gets old REALLY fast. To be fair, the movie has a laid back style that makes it refreshing compared to the hyper kinetic family movies nowadays. But the movie is TOO laid back - it takes about half of the movie to go by before the movie's real plot starts! The movie may be of interest to fans of real obscure movies and/or weird family movies, but even those people might find their patience tested.
