Not a bad movie at all
21 August 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

In fact Maneater is one of SyFy's most tolerable movies to me. I usually cannot stand their resume, but keep watching anyway as there is something so compulsively watchable about their awfulness. It does have its problems, the dialogue is clunky, the rather clichéd subplot with the kid takes too much time in the film and still feels underdeveloped after, some of the action once the tiger takes on a more ninja sort of role doesn't feel very focused and comes as confused instead and some members of the supporting cast are bland. I also felt the ending was on the rushed side, but didn't consider that as big a problem as the above. On the other hand, Maneater for SyFy actually looks decent. The scenery is both lovely and atmospheric and this is a rare SyFy movie that doesn't rely on too many CGI effects to create suspense or tension. The tiger is not that scary but actually looks convincing still. The editing is more focused than the slip-shod quality I was expecting. The music is not as generic or as sluggish as I anticipated, it does have its haunting parts and maintains interest. The story is never dull and while not much new not overly-predictable. The killings are bloody, but also surprisingly tense and suspenseful. The characters are reasonably engaging, clichéd of course but the amount of annoying things SyFy characters tend to do is not as prominent here. The lead acting is fine, Gary Busey is his usual charismatic self despite an appearance that makes you wonder whether he had just gotten out of bed. Ty Wood is appealing, but stealing the show was Ian D. Clark, who is wonderfully creepy. All in all, tolerable if flawed movie, not bad at all at the end of the day. 6/10 Bethany Cox
