Less Grizzly More Wet Fish
15 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The idea has all the hallmarks of the 80s glory days of VHS, when straight-to-video wasn't a derogatory term and many a title had decent budgets and cast. It looked a good old-fashioned monster romp.

However, it never hits the mark and for me, is further proof that if James Marsden is in the film then it's going to flounder (and I like James - it's just that his track record is abysmal).

The problem is a complete lack of tension. The kills are never seen. By that all you see is a victim get dragged off screen (obviously by two crew members yanking a leg each). Then they reappear with a bit of blood on them. A quick shot of a bear's head and then back to the person who's now dead.

Add to this the bear just ambles about looking like he's taking a stroll down the aisle of a supermarket. There's a scene where the protagonists have to run from the marauding bear. This is meant to be tense and you see the fear in their eyes but whenever the film cuts to the bear, he's ambling along on all fours and a good 20 yards away. We never see the bear run or rise up on 2 legs and tower over the cast. In short, we never get any sense of danger or that the bear is this pi55ed-off killer that Billy Bob Thornton keeps telling us he is. All we get is a sense that they filmed a live bear mooching around and just cut his scenes in.

And that's the problem. The bear is only dangerous in exposition from the cast. "He's super smart....he's a killer and he won't stop....he's desperate....once he tastes human flesh..." etc and the reality never lives up to this hype.

I'm surprised this cost $10 million. I would've said $1 million. There's no budget on screen and to be honest, the whole thing plays out like an American TV movie: kills off-screen, no decent action scenes, no tension, no horror, no spectacle.
