Katarzyna Al Abbas,
The battle between loggers and environmentalists is defining, dividing and destroying communities in Canada and around the world. The Green Chain is a powerful, funny and thought-provoking film about the people who love trees.
A newbie guard for an armored truck company is coerced by his veteran coworkers to steal a truck containing $42 million. But a wrinkle in their supposedly foolproof plan divides the group, leading to a potentially deadly resolution.
I bought a copy of this on DVD in a video store in my hometown. The cover promised hilarity, and while the film is *murderously* slow for the first half (most of the hilarity coming only from the dialogue and the relationship between Nell and the 'Boss', who is a total hard-ass for the sole reason that the film needs one), things really pick up once the creepy Uncle Nick and the 8-bit, poorly-rendered hovering fires arrive. Films like these, when they hit their stride, are far funnier than any intentional comedy. Sadly, Wildfire 7 kind of wallows in mediocrity for the most part. The last half hour, though, is truly stunning.
A '6' in terms of it being laughably bad. A '1' if you pick this up expecting to see a half-decent movie (though really, why would you?).
