Hated the special effects but liked the acting!
23 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a fan of monster movies and not opposed to a little gratuitous gore, I was fascinated by the title and the brief synopsis in my programme guide, so decided to watch this movie. I confess that I missed the beginning so did not see what happened to the two teenagers who let the ogre out of his lair. I presume they were eaten but I didn't witness this. I started watching from when the other two were in jail along with the "chosen one" for the ogre's next dinner.

I particularly liked the acting of Katharine Isabelle who played Jessica, the female of the two teenagers. I thought she hammed up her lines a little but that she gave the plot a bit of realism and down to earth-edness that was missing from the whole surmise.

The programme guide listed this movie under "horror." I would think that is a bit strong for the mild violence and terror generated by this film, most of which could easily be bettered by an average computer game aimed at teenagers. The ogre himself is a bit of a joke to put it mildly. Extremely juvenile computer graphics, comic-book roars, (why do all dinosaurs and monsters have exactly the same roars, I wonder?) and slow enough plodding that left me wondering how he caught anyone that wasn't tied to a stake as a sacrifice. Anyone who wasn't actually in a wheelchair could have outrun him, I would have thought.

Then of course there is the ever-present disbelieving police. Where would a good monster movie (or even a bad one) be without a couple of coppers laughing their heads off at the idea that there's a monster in them thar woods? Despite all of this, and suspending disbelief whenever the star of the show appeared on screen to gouge and maim those unfortunate locals who stood still for the required ten minutes waiting for him to reach them, I found this film enjoyable, particularly due to Katharine's natural performance. Whoever did the CGI ought to be allowed early retirement, but otherwise it was an enjoyable romp...hardly horror though.
