A funny movie for non-jaded critics
18 December 2017 | by alan_t_franzenSee all my reviews


I ran across this little gem on a Saturday night when cruising Netflix. I was intrigued by Ian McShane and Ron Perlman. I wasn't expecting that much and I had an enjoyable time watching the actors bring the characters to life. Ian is very funny playing a hunter and Ron Perlman does an excellent job of playing a country sherriff. I read the previous reviews and I'm not we were watching the same film. I have relatives in a small town in east Texas and the themes of a small town dependent on a mill closing hit close to home as when industry leaves a small town, there often aren't a lot of opportunities. Perhaps I just have a calif attitude but I was laughing at the same jokes when I watched the next afternoon with friends. Perhaps not everyone noticed that the Bigfoot costume was what special forces actually wears for camo wear. There are a lot of other subtle jokes in the movie if you are paying attention. Cheers!
