This one wasn't all that bad and really had some good points here. One of the better features in here is the film's rather large amount of fun, shorter encounters here between the creature and the different civilians along the way. The early scene of it stalking the two-story house with the showering home-owner while the whole thing is videotaped by the enthusiastic searchers comes off really well, as does the different incidents here where he runs into the lone couple out on the streets, deals with the auto-shop crew and then deals with the searchers once again in the streets of the police station which come off incredibly fun and enjoyable here. Not only do these quick scenes keep the creature at the center of the film, which itself is another positive point for this one, but also aids in helping to give this another point in the film offering a unique take on the Bigfoot angle getting it out of the woods and forests it usually place them and goes for a suburban experience. It's pretty unique and feels fresh enough to make it different as well as keeping up some great action sense. Those carry into the finale here which is the films' best sequence as it goes for the group inside the barricaded station which brings about the fun brawling trying to keep it out and managing to score some great defense against it. As well, the stalking chases through the underground tunnels and out into the abandoned warehouse where there's plenty of great encounters here including the big brawl at the end for a series of exciting scenes filled with action, a few good kills and a lot more suspense than expected which makes it a lot of fun. Along with the real-life suit for the creature and the gory kills, these here do manage to hold this one up against its few flaws. One of the biggest issues here is the fact that this one goes for those short attacks which don't really do much for the pace here as the short scenes come off as interruptions against the other plot-lines in here. From the retribution of the criminal to the father and daughter growing up together, as their own issues come up and the focus on the crumbling station are all so exhaustive that all this has time for is the briefer attacks which are pretty sparsely populated so while he's constantly involved they're of little significance to the plot. Another big problem here, as well as furthering the lack of Bigfoot action, is the obnoxious overly- enthusiastic searchers who do nothing but interview random strangers about seeing him but coverall these guys are annoying and don't add any substance to the film. Along with the lather lame premise for getting him into the city, these here hold this down enough from the positives.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence and Nudity.
