Daredevil relic hunter brothers Jonas and Jace are called off a Spanish museum job the head a team assembles hastily by collector-tycoon Mills to rescue his other team, headed by Jonas's ex Villers, on Artic Canada's Monster island. Their initial target was a Chinese codex from a Victorian ship containing the only evidence on the Yeren, a Chinese version of the yeti. It turns out the bloodthirsty species is alive, and far more dangerous the polar bears, with a primate-like social life, yet Mills offers a fat premium to catch one alive, despite the rising body count, but his rival also has surprises in store.Written by

As the rescue team gather after they are dropped and try to determine which way to go, you can clearly see bushes and shrubbery in the background. They are supposed to be on the north pole, there is no vegetation there. See more »
Is there any chance you can get the chopper here sooner?
If I had a Stargate, maybe...

Upon arriving at an Arctic research station looking for the reason for the previous' crews disappearance, a team of hunters find the few survivors claiming a legendary creature is responsible and try to stop them from getting loose in order to get away from the base alive.
This one was overall pretty enjoyable. One of the better features is it's rather interesting take on a Sasquatch film, as this one decides to incorporate a little-known aspect of the legend about the Chinese variation being to live in the snow allowing this one to really play around with some new environments. The ability to blend into the snow and during the heavy storm going on at the same time makes these pretty threatening creature since this one has them popping out whenever they're not expected, which is definitely a great plus here and makes the film a lot more exciting. There's also some rather fun action scenes later on that that are plenty enjoyable, and the blood and gore are what's to be expected in a Sci-Fi Channel film. The main problem with this one, as mentioned earlier it's a Sci-Fi Channel film so expect the usual level of CGI, is that despite being billed as a Sasquatch film and mentioned within the dialog of the creatures' true identity, the decision to remove the humanoid basis and turn them into more like mutated polar boars is a curious one, as they move and act like so rather than of the more human-like variations that should've populated the film. Otherwise, this one was pretty enjoyable.
Rated R: Graphic Violence and Language.
