The title made me expect something MUCH worse
15 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the previews for this new sci-fi flick, I had the impression I was going to see a film that was as technically and artistically lazy and un-creative as its very title. The film is simply called "ogre" and it's about, well, an ogre. And not a talking one like Shrek. Just a big, lumbering, clumsy green hunchback wearing an apron who roars and likes to tear people into pieces. It's more like a troll.

"Ogre" actually turned out to surprise me, for it was much better than I was expecting. The graphics were just as poor as I anticipated, but everything else, notably the acting, was a major improvement over some of its other brother flicks that keep popping up on and off on the Sci-Fi Channel. Performances by the entire cast were worth writing home about. Not to say they were uniformally magnificent, but they were done by actors and actresses who had a clue of what they were doing and actually stirred to make an effort. The plot of the film was also more interesting...for a low-budget flick.

I am not, however, praising "Ogre" enough to say that it's a good movie. I still have to give it a marginally negative review because of the fact that it did prove to be a little tedious and slow over its running time with not enough action. And there was also some inconsistency I have to point out. Such as some of the secondary characters have old-fashioned muskets and the leading actor carries a contemporary police shotgun. And yet in the scenes where they're shooting it out with the ogre, he's firing shot-after-shot from his shotgun without the slightest recoil and the ones with the muskets are flinching back or falling over from the recoil of older, less reactive weapons.

Bottom line, "Ogre" was not a major surprise, but it was definitely more than I was expecting given the style and results that its brother and sister films on the Sci-Fi Channel have given to me over the years. What it really has to show for itself is its acting and the good performances of the cast. Still, it was a little too slow for me, and thus, I don't highly recommend it.
