As host of his own hit TV series, 'MAN VS', Doug Woods is forced to fend for himself for five days in remote locations with no crew, food, or water, only the cameras he carries on his back to film his experiences. Doug's in the remote woods for a routine episode, until he's awoken by an earth-shaking crash. Things get weirder as it becomes clear Doug isn't alone. Someone or something is watching him. MAN VS is a gripping 'found footage' thriller about one man's extraordinary desire to survive at all costs.

Good movie, terrible way to end it
24 October 2016 | by antoniokowatschSee all my reviews

This movie was actually really good and suspenseful. Initially I wanted to give it a higher rating. Well, that was until the last 20 minutes started rolling. They totally ruined the entire movie for me. Without spoiling too much: let's just say that there were some really bad CGI VFX at play (during the aforementioned last 20 minutes).

About the movie itself: it's a typical "filming in the woods, gone wrong" type of movie. But unlike most other movies of this genre they managed to make this one cleverly educational. There are plenty of scenes where the protagonist explains exactly what he's doing. Kind of like a survival guide if you will (there is however a better/more effective way of starting a fire than was shown in the movie).

Final verdict: if it weren't for the crappy ending this movie would have been truly great. What a way to ruin a movie.
