Man Against Tree
26 April 2015 | by mxyzptlk2009See all my reviews

I found this to be a very entertaining movie. Independent movies such as this cannot be measured against big-budget Hollywood movies but must be evaluated on their own terms. By that standard, I regard Lumber vs. Jack to be one of the better "indies" I have seen. Although not exactly a comedy, it has a light-hearted tone (evidenced by the fact that two of the leading characters are named Jack and Jill), which makes it consistently enjoyable to watch. It is well directed, well written (with a number of very clever lines), and, again by the standards of indie films, well acted. The camera work is top notch, although I found the sound to be a bit spotty (I had to adjust the volume up and down several times during the movie).

The premise of the movie -- genetically altered trees rising up to attack humans -- is, admittedly, hokey, but it works in a movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. I found it a bit odd that no one seemed concerned about the fate of the security team who accompanied Jack's ex-wife Jill (Debbie Rochon) into the woods, but, frankly, I didn't care either. The ending leaves open the possibility of a sequel, and I can only hope that it turns out to be as entertaining as this one.
