Storyline

In the small Ascension, the constructor Thomas Walsh is working with his team at the Mount Lincoln. Out of the blue, there are tremors and the branch of the tree fall over Thomas' employee and breaks his leg. He brings his truck and finds the man dead. He brings the man to the town and finds that his sister Grace Walsh plans to camp at the mountain with her sweetheart Jerrod Dietrich while their lunatic father William Walsh defends the theory that an ancient being is near to be released on Earth and destruct the planet. Meanwhile, the geologist Emily Allington returns to her hometown Ascension to investigate the tremors. The army representative Jack Murray also comes to Ascension to search a mysterious wallet that was lost on the mountain. Soon the dwellers of Ascension discover the secret of the tremors.

The term "singularity event" is defined as a one-off incident which can threaten the Earth's existence. Not only has the creature apparently emerged on two previous occasions, the (not "a") singularity is actually a hypothesized point when artificial intelligence outpaces that of humanity's. It is also used in general relativity theory to describe certain gravitational or spacetime events. See more »

Cool monster, not cool story
5 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

BEHEMOTH is a monster flick let down by its own shortcomings in terms of budget and originality. Yes, it's another SyFy Channel production, filmed on the cheap in Canada, that has flashes of decency amid an overwhelming number of strictly middling to poor moments.

The storyline sees strange stirrings beneath the earth and mysterious levels of carbon dioxide rising from the crust. A team of investigators are soon on the case, as is a crazy old man who thinks that some mythical beastie is responsible. Inevitably it turns out that the old guy is right, and the heroes find themselves up against a massive monster from days gone by with plans to destroy the world.

So far so ordinary, but the surprising thing here is that the CGI effects are actually decent; far better than in other SyFy movies or the likes of DRAGON WARS. That monster looks great, especially when straddling the mountain top! I wish it had played a greater part on screen, but it was still a welcome sight. Sadly the rest of the production is less impressive, with boring characters and indifferent acting; the only one who makes an effort is William B. Davis, he of THE X-FILES fame. There's far too much hiking and chatting and not enough monster action for my liking, leaving this a disappointment regardless.
