Adrien Brody was heavily involved with this early on, wanting to star and produce. He met with Gerard Butler and discussed with him the idea of them playing brothers in the film, but he eventually passed. See more »
As Piper Parabo's character is setting snares, she is crouched down, then stands and moves from facing toward the camera to her back toward the camera. Suddenly, birds fly and call a warning, when the camera goes back to her, she is back crouching facing toward the camera and then she repeats the move to where her back is toward the camera. The tree the snares are connected to shows the scene is repeated. See more »
The cast was a definite appeal for me: James Marsden, Piper Perabo, Billy Bob Thornton, Thomas Jane and Scott Glenn are all actors that I enjoy usually.
And although they aren't terrible I don't think any of them shine in their roles, but then they didn't have much to work with; the characters are all pretty flat with little to no character development.
The script is not well-written (to put it mildly) in fact it reminds me of the typical creature feature that SyFy channel mass-produces by the dozens every year, but with better acting and better music.
Extremely clichéd and no real suspense, I mean there were attempts at suspense but it all felt pretty flat just like the rest of the movie.
PS, Piper Perabo plays a deaf-mute woman so she has no dialogue, in case you were like me looking forward to see her act again she does so just by gestures and facial expressions.
I recommend Backcountry aka Blackfoot Trail instead.
