Yet another Canada-made generic-US-town bore
14 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I suspect like most people, I got conned into watching this because of Jason Priestly's name.

Still cute, but he pretty much phoned in his performance. Jerk. At least his character got a leg infection.

But his performance is stellar compared to that of almost everyone else involved in the project, from the writers to the director to the other actors, the cinematographer, the music, and the special effects group.

One sure sign of a crap movie is the fact that it's obviously made in Canada, and yet it supposed to be in some US town that nobody can name. Not on the public buildings, not on the police cars, nowhere. But, like every small US town, it does have a Scotiabank. I'm amazed they actually found a Washington license plate. Big budget, eh?

I start out assuming that a movie will be a 7, and then I start moving the score up or down from there. This one quickly dropped to 6, which typically are B movies, and then to 5, which are things that are so bad they can hardly even be called movies. I didn't give it a 4 or less, because I don't feel that the filmmakers actually intended to maliciously insult the audience.

The only part that wasn't predictable was how awesomely bad the ending was going to be. I don't think I've seen anything more recent than the Gilligan's Island TV series that actually uses sped-up playback to turn a walking bear into a running bear. On Bear Island. Whatever.

If you're in Canada, and particularly in BC, you probably helped pay for this piece of junk, via its tax credits or film incentives. Are you having fun yet?
