Storyline

Riese, a seemingly random wanderer, is being hunted by a terrifying religious cult, The Sect. Traveling from nation to nation for years, she is accompanied only by a wolf, Fenrir. Together they must evade the assassins sent by the Sect - who'll stop at nothing to complete the task they failed to achieve many years ago. Her past is shrouded in mystery, as even Riese can't recall the events of the tragic night when her entire family was slaughtered and she was forced to flee into the wilderness. On her journey, she'll piece together her past, and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of the world in the balance - and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield. "Riese", a unique and original steam-punk -inspired production includes Christine Chatelain ( SyFy's Sanctuary , Supernatural, The Collector, The L-Word ). Ben Cotton (Harper's Island, Stargate: Atlantis, Stan Helsing), Sharon Taylor (Stargate: Atlantis, Alice and Huck) and Patrick Gilmore (Stargate:... Written by Anonymous

Good concept. Stilted acting. SyFy: please no more movies in Canada.
12 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SyFy, pleeze no more movies from Canada. I realize it is cheaper there, but jeez... The only one who threw himself into the role was Ryan Robbins (and yes, i know he's Canadian). Some of my best friends are from the cold country, but not a whole crew and director...

If the acting and timing wasn't so stilted, this could have been good. I was wanting it to be good. But the wooden acting and directing made it no more than a 5 in my opinion.

Come on, lets hear some passion, some conviction, some life....

Okay, actually, the wolf did a great job.

The flick is worth the time if you are really in to steam punk, or just want to escape to a cold landscape for 80 minutes or so.
