This movie was very entertaining.

They are in an environment that is hot and dry, and don't have headwear, sunglasses, food, water, snacks (except gum).

It's basically a survival-type drama with some twists, but on the whole is quite formulaic.

Format: DVD
In "Open Water" (2003), a pair of scuba divers (who were also a couple) got stranded in the middle of the ocean and found themselves imperiled by a school of sharks. Well, in "The Canyon", we have a newly-married couple stranded somewhere in the Grand Canyon and hunted by wolves. It's basically a survival-type drama with some twists, but on the whole is quite formulaic. What makes this watchable (though more as a rental and not a purchase) is the acting, which I thought was quite alright, considering this is a low-budget indie flick. The story centers around Nick (Eion Bailey) and Lori (Yvonne Strahovski) who are a pair of newly-weds and eager for adventure (well, Nick mainly) - Nick's idea of a perfect honeymoon is to explore the deepest recesses of the canyon via muleback. Unfortunately, Nick did not have the foresight to apply for a permit for their excursion and the pair decide to take on the proffered services of a grizzled old guide Henry (Will Patton).

Will Patton makes the initial part of this movie quite watchable with his dry humor and vast knowledge of the canyon - he really is quite a hoot to watch in his role as guide. Unfortunately, his role is rather shortlived, and it is left to Nick and Lori to carry the rest of the movie through as the stranded pair are forced to rely on their wits to stay alive and make it out of the canyon, even as tragedy and danger stalk them in the form of a pack of determined wolves. Eion Bailey's Nick is quite average in his role as the smart ass new husband who uses his persuasive skills in getting Lori to agree to his adventure - a plan that seems doomed from the beginning considering his lack of planning and foresight.His character as such is hard to empathize with.

This film would fit nicely in a gift set with "Open Water" and "Black Water". Like its less-than-warm-blooded brethren, "The Canyon" finds an attractive couple trapped in raw wilderness, ultimately pit face to face with Mother Nature and her drones - in this case, wolves. There is stunning cinematography, beautiful scenery, and a fair level of intensity on display here, which makes the so-so script worthwhile. If you're the kind of person who enjoys man-against-nature pictures, "Canyon" is a perfect fit for a rainy afternoon. Even if one isn't a lover of eco-horror, the wolves used are put on full display, and they are breathtaking to behold. No CGI here.... thank the films Gods for that one. All in all, this is an entertaining thriller with more to admire than to roll the eyes at, and even when the eyes are rolling, they're rolling over a gorgeous surface.

The canyon is a fairly predictable cliche of a film but very nicely done in terms of photography and acting. I have to say that this is just not my kind of film and so it is hard to judge otherwise. If you like films about people who make bad decisions and then get lost in nature, then you may well enjoy this one. The disasters are kept to a few, which is good because that sort of thing can be overdone. No landslides, flash floods, indian attacks, quicksand, or going totally mad. Nice level of distress. The few disasters were however terrible but sort of predictable and some people may groan.I suggest suspending disbelief, because it is worth it to keep watching and focus on the tensions between the newlyweds and the scenery.

The"making of" special feature discovering the canyon was pretty nice because they took their movie seriously and mentioned issues working with the wolves and so on and we don't often see this in special features. I wish they had left a couple of deleted scenes in the film.

All in all, not a bad film for an evening for me. But to really appreciate the quality you probably have to like these sorts of lost and stranded films and not get upset if it seems somewhat generic. In its essence, I think it is not especially innovative. It is touching.

Was a fairly believable scenario for a change, a little over the top with the wolves, but at least realistic enough that it could actually happen, I have no regret for the time spent watching this movie, wouldn't mind seeing it again to get more of the details that I always miss with one viewing.

***1/2

Newlyweds Nick (Eion Bailey) and Lori (Yvonne Strahavski) stumble into the honeymoon-from-hell when they innocently and foolishly allow a grizzled old cowpoke to talk them into taking an unauthorized mule-trip into the heart of the Grand Canyon. When Henry (Will Patton), the guide, is bitten by a rattlesnake, the couple is left to fend for themselves in this unfamiliar and brutally hostile terrain with little or no survival skills to help get them through the experience.

Based on a number of recent movie going experiences ("127 Hours," "Gerry" and "Open Water" ), there seems to be a real genre developing here - which, for lack of a better term, we'll call the cocky-outdoorsman-gets-his-ever-lovin'-butt-kicked-by-Mother-Nature scenario. Like those other films, "The Canyon" really makes us empathize with the plight the citified couple is going through, offering cringe-inducing scene after cringe-inducing scene of their often ham-handed attempts at staying alive. Also, like those previous works, this movie explores the themes of how easy it is to find ourselves without warning at the mercy of an uncaring and capricious Fate; of how quickly stupid decisions made in the heat of the moment can lead to long-term, disastrous consequences; of how ill-equipped modern Man is at grappling against the forces of an impersonal Nature; and of how indomitable the human spirit can be in even the most dire and hopeless of circumstances.

Replete with an "ironic" ending that will have you throwing things at the screen in frustration and dismay (think of it as the ultimate anti-deus ex machina), "The Canyon," which was written by Steve Allrich and directed by Richard Harrah, makes for gripping and grueling, if not always, edifying or uplifting viewing. It will also make you think twice before ignoring signs posted at national parks. And, oh yes, perhaps the biggest lesson of all is to always give heed to women's intuition.
