On a camping retreat in the woods, a group of teens unwittingly incur the wrath of the legendary Paul Bunyan and must try to survive the giants' fury and knowledge of the surrounding area as he hunts them down one-by-one.
This here is a rather fun and enjoyable enough effort that has some pretty enjoyable moments going for it, as well as the the traditional problems associated with these kinds movies. The fact that the film manages to feature some of the same problems with the CGI being of just abysmal quality here with almost no attempt made to integrate it into the scene logically or hide it's usage makes for a curious inclusion of it overall. As well, there's several plot threads within that don't make a whole lot of sense as there's several story lines within that really could've been dropped without deviation from the main story, and as a whole drag the opening out a little more than necessary. Still, there's some fun to be had here with some fantastic stalking through the forest as the towering figure over the tree-tops chasing them is pretty intense and the use of the forest is a good setting for it all. There's a lot of moments with an actor in a prosthetic suit interacting with miniature models of the surroundings that are mixed incredibly well with the real- size footage that makes the CGI all the more curious as it's far more convincing than possible here and why not just keep it all the way through is rather curious. With some brutal kills resulting in some nice gore shots and a fun, action-packed finale to boost it up, there's some good stuff in here.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence and Brief Nudity.
