It is what it is
6 August 2018 | by cripdonovanSee all my reviews

In one movie Boomer says wolves don't attack people but this movie he warns us of wolves who attack people. Inconsistency at times in all 3 movies but it doesn't warrant a 1 & 2 star rating. Granted it is no 8,9 or 10 like some are giving it. On the 1st movies reviews one person gave it a 1 because it's sexist because the father took his son hunting instead of his daughter. It's a late 70's flick and it is what it is. What did you expect?!
