Editorial Reviews

An earthquake reactivates a long-dormant volcano threatening the small town of Ascension, trembling in its shadow. But the gaping maws in the region reveal evidence of something else a centuries-old subterranean creature at last given the chance to break free in a black cloud of fire and ash. As the Behemoth wreaks havoc, it's a race against time as a small band of rescuers fight it with a force as destructive as the beast itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Decent Corny Icky Bug January 18, 2011
Format:DVD
Behemoth is everything I expect out of a B-movie... well, except for the gratuitous naked chicks and the f-bombs. In this case, the icky bug is a beastie that has been awakened to wreak havoc on the world for polluting too much. Like what has happened at least twice in the past, according to the hero's father, otherwise known as William B. Davis, or Cancer Man from the X-Files. Love that guy! I'm glad to see he is still around. He plays a great slightly off-kilter father figure.

Quinn, the hero, used to be on Eureka, but quit the series a while back. He does a good job as the mountain guide who takes the government agent up the mountain to look for the team that already knows about the monster and actually has a weapon to stop it. Huh? One of many big plot holes, but I don't watch these movies to quibble over details like that. I want to see conflict and body count! In this case, though, there aren't really very many victims, or there don't seem to be. Maybe I was just distracted by the spectacular Canadian scenery. Aww, who cares?

The monster, when it finally appears, is pretty hokey CGI. Let's just say they didn't go all out on that one, but that adds to the charm. What probably would have made it a bit better would have been a bit of string here and there, holding up the octopus-like arms.

This is my kind of icky bug. If you are looking for realism or art, you are barking up the wrong tree. If, however, you are just looking for a good time, I highly recommend this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Apocalyptic splendor! April 14, 2011
By Einsatz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love how they keep finding new ways to slip global warming rants into every sci-fi flick these days.
I will admit that on a lot of levels this one is a stinker. Maybe that's why I really liked it. Someone has to; it's like the ugly puppy no one wants. It's daffy, it's dopey, the hero is a logger for pity sake! Who just happens to know how to use the SECRET weapon that was lying around the forest!
I'm a sucker for monsters. I like them grumpy and I like them big and this one's bigger than a mountain...or was the mountain...or something like that. Anyway, it's a Mayan Monster (like that explained anything!) I thought it was a hoot. It even starred William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man) as a loopy old geezer with a fondness for drawing monsters and pinning them to his wall. It doesn't get better than this. Well, actually, it should, but until something better comes along...! It'll have to do.
Yes, it's a keeper. I'll watch this sucker many times and just laughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid disaster/monster TV flick April 6, 2011
By Wuchak
Format:DVD
"Behemoth" was originally released on Syfy in January 15, 2011. I'm surprised it's available on dvd already.

THE PLOT: In the Great Northwest the Walsh family's patriarch seems to be going crazy with his blathering on mythical prophecies about some colossal beast awakening and creating havoc. Meanwhile there are ominous geological signs that something earth-shattering may be occurring. The local authorities finally take heed and give the word to evacuate. The problem is the beautiful Walsh daughter is camping with her fiancé on the mountain, which is the focal point of the catastrophe. Her older brother and a scientist girlfriend go to the mountain to save her. There's also a government agent investigating things. All hell breaks loose literally.

"Behemoth" combines the plot of "Dante's Peak" with countless monster-in-the-woods flicks, so this may not be the most original film out there but it's well done for what it is. Where it scores high marks for originality is the cause of the disaster, the behemoth itself. Most monster-in-the-woods flicks feature creatures about the size of Bigfoot, e.g. the many "Sasquatch" flicks, "Goblin", "Man-Thing", "It Waits", "Carny", "Prophecy" ('79), "Gargoyles", etc. Not so here. The creature in "Behemoth" is indeed a behemoth -- so huge, in fact, that it literally sleeps/lives inside a mountain!

Some have complained about the appearance of the monster as goofy and badly done. I don't get this. I think it's pretty cool looking -- a multitude of tentacles, malevolent head, gaping maw. What do you expect for low-budget CGI? I think it's better than any creature in the ridiculously expensive cartoon "Avatar" (no offense to "Avatar" fans, my wife loved it, it's just not my cup of tea).

Format:DVD
Anyone that watches a SyFy Channel original movie on occasion knows that they rarely offer real chills. That doesn't mean that some of the films don't have a demented sort of charm. Grade A cheese, the best of the bunch tend to be hysterically unapologetic creature feature schlock. And who doesn't love bad B-movie mayhem? I certainly do and there aren't enough genetically mutated monsters to satisfy my cravings. However, sometimes there are movies that fail to accomplish even "dumb fun" and these can be painfully uninteresting. Unfortunately "Behemoth" falls into this category. "Behemoth" features a couple of sci-fi veterans that I have enjoyed in other programming, and they were the primary draw for me. Ed Quinn, late of "Eureka," plays the stalwart hero and William B. Davis, "The X-Files" terrific cigarette smoking man, is on hand as his nutty but wise father. Neither fares particularly well here--but with this material, I can't really hold it against them!

"Behemoth" has something to do with an enormous underground creature. Before you get too excited, though, you don't see too much of it--and when the big reveal comes, it is surprisingly underwhelming. Easily ninety percent of the menace and danger in "Behemoth" is provided by the ground shaking. That camera is rattled around so often, you'd think it would have knocked something loose. So if you love tremors and special effect rocks falling, this one's for you. Davis provides some mythological mumbo jumbo, there are geological ramblings, and some sort of government response is explained--but none of it makes much difference. It all boils down to killing the creature. The monster is represented most of the time by disembodied rubber octopus legs slapping around.
