As such, I will do my best to keep this critique in isolation for its own good. That said The Legend of Sasquatch is a 2006 computer-animated independent film released by Gorilla Pictures that managed to snag the voice talents of William Hurt, John Rhys-Davies and cartoon legend Frank Welker. It was released on September 12, 2006 but the DVD didn't hit the scene till 2008.
The film opens with Ranger Steve (John Rhys-Davies) sitting by a campfire narrating a story about the Davis family and the power of legend. The Davis Family - John (William Hurt), along with his young daughters Khristy and Maggie, relocate to a secluded log cabin in the mountains above Seattle and soon discover a family of Bigfoot hiding nearby.
John, it turns out, has come to the area to supervise the construction of a dam that will provide electricity to neighboring areas while simultaneously teaching his family the value of life free of the restrictions of technology.
At its core, this is the tale of John being forced into a decision between job security and doing what is right for the population of Sasquatch residing in the valley that would be flooded once the dam was complete.
The list of problems plaguing this picture is plentiful to say the least but contrary to common misconception, few of them stem from the simple fact that this is an indie film on a limited budget.Read more ›
I'll admit, though, that the animation leaves alot to be desired. It's not quite up to par with such CGI classics as "Toy Story", "Monsters Inc." or "Cars". Even so, the story helps push this film along and, in that respect, this movies does fine.
I definitely recommend this movie. I loved it. you will too.
It's about the family, trusting each other, and how powerful dreaming is.
Recommended for kids up to fifth grade and any teen/adult that likes to dream.
Where this thing becomes a steaming pile of guano is the story line and dialogue. You know, the important things.
The characters are beyond simplistic and the dialogue and its delivery is totally flat.
There's some recurring theme clumsily jammed in about a dead mom, but it doesn't fit well. This is literally the worst show my kids have ever watched.
And how does a film that bills itself as family approved refer to Santa as a myth in the first 2 minutes?
here's the basic exchange between two sister:
Big sister- "Bigfoot is a myth."
Lil' Sister- 'What is a myth?"
Big sister- "You know, like Santa."
Lil' Sister-"But Santa is real!"
Big sister-"Sure" (eyeroll)
You'd really swear this was a college art student's final project. And it only got him a C because the teacher liked him and wanted him to graduate.
One redeeming quality-- The guy who voices George on the Curious George series does the exact same voice in this garbage. That will give you something to look up on IMDB to distract yourself as you pray for the show to finish.
If you really want to roll the dice on this thing, check you local library. Save your money for something more useful, like shredding it or something.
