Okay movie.
18 November 2002 | by kita117See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie was on television. I don't even know if this movie came out in the theaters. Beasts is a movie that has a slow moving pace to it. Overall, it was good, but the killings of the grizzly were too far apart and their weren't that many killings. It seems as though the two robbers didn't have a significance within the movie meaning their plot was very pointless . It seems as though this movie would have been hard to find so I recorded it when I was watching it on TV. I didn't watch this movie on cable, so I wonder if they cut some parts out.
