Goofs

The "Norwegian legend" recounted by Haas is a pure fabrication. Wyverns do not appear in Norse mythology, nor do they have any association with the deities Hel or Óðin. See more »

Quotes

Claire: Would you look at yourselves? A truck driver, a DJ, a retired colonel, and a hillbilly.
Haas: Hey, who you calling a hillbilly?
Claire: Haas, you made your own fur jacket.

Conventional monster yarn with superior ensemble cast
23 February 2010 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

Really enjoyed this, it's one of SyFy channel's better efforts. The action is paced well, the characters are well-developed, and the acting is at a premium level.

It's a good late-night monster flick, with a dragon beast that attacks the residents of a small remote Alaskan town. The special effects are adequate in making what you see believable, and the director depicts the violence adequately by tempering the gore scenes. You see the violence, yet without the excessive blood and guts spraying around gratuitously. Also, because the actors make the characters natural and give them dimension, you care about them. So, when someone is lost, you feel that loss (in contrast to the paper cut-out screamers these movies usually have, and you root for the monster). The town's people are a nicely composed group of different types of people, with no clichéd personalities (for once). The film even gives the creature some depth: what it's doing, why, etc.

The final battle sequence is the stuff of good popcorn monster movie action. The weapon that's used might seem way out, but it's a lot of fun, an original idea, and the duel really shows somebody thought out how to do it effectively.

Despite a limited budget, this film is a good watch.
