Product Description

AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN is a dark, contemporary take on the tall tale. Kids at a first-time offenders' boot camp discover the legend of lumberjack Paul Bunyan is real, but is much more horrifying than they could have imagined. They incur the wrath of the 15-foot monstrous giant, who was banished from town 100 years ago and thought dead.

Review

"It delivers on the promise of its premise completely... 'Bunyan' is a real fun ride. You rarely see this kind of genre film made today with so much care." --Jonathan Weichsel, Film Radar

I first saw this on television and just knew I had to have it. What magnificent crap. The CGI is bargain basement tacky, more cartoon than live action. The characters are all standard, as if picked out of a catalog by the director (I'll need one of these, four of those, a couple of them). The story is daffy, beginning in the long distant past when the Bunyan was a pintsized axe murderer. He took exception to the starving loggers chowing down on his pussy-footin' ox and slaughtered the lot of them, something the townsfolk didn't appreciate. They tried blowing him up but he only got bigger and older, a lot older, and meaner. And then when some dopey kid disrespected poor, long-dead Babe's horn, that was the last straw. Nothing would do but he had to kill them all with extreme prejudice. Those he could catch, that is.

This movie is hilariously awful. A classic of clichés, riddled with crazy dialog, and bad (really bad) acting. In fact, the worst actor of the bunch actually says that at one point. "This is very-very-very-bad!" At first, I thought he was talking about himself, then I guessed he meant Bunyan on a killing spree.

This movie is mesmerizing; from the first frame to the closing credits, that issues this warning: Bunyan will return. Oh good, a sequel. (What idiot would be willing to pay for that?)

I will sometimes purposefully watch a B movie. So I can be good with low budget,bad acting and a weak plot at times. This was way beyond terrible. I just recently watched Dark Waters which was a really bad flick. But in comparison was a blockbuster. Don't go anywhere near this little number. You could shoot a better video drunk in the dark with an old VHS recorder. And that's probably how they did it.

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 "Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyon" falls into this category. Late in the movie, a story is recounted that shows why Bunyon turned into a crazed axe wielding maniac. That scene is so supremely silly and terrific, it just demonstrated how mundane the rest of the movie was. Let's just say that I'll never think of Babe the Blue Ox in quite the same way. But this demented 5 star scene can't save the lack of creativity in the rest of the film.

The movie starts with a glimpse of this back story, but soon moves quickly to the present. A troop of at-risk teenagers is taking an excursion into the woods with a surly Sergeant (Thomas Downey) and a sensitive social worker (Kristina Kopf). As a sort of wilderness reform therapy, each of the law breaking delinquents will be pushed to extremes by the stern taskmaster. Of course, the kids are rather generic character types instead of interesting people. Among them is an incredibly bland good girl who got a bad rap, so you have a good idea of who might survive (I would warn you about a possible spoiler alert, but don't bland good girls generally survive?). When the group finds a mysterious death alter, it opens a Pandora's box of horrors with a murderous giant tracking them down.

Minnesota 1884: Foreman Bill (a cameo by Dan Haggerty) and his lumberjack crew have just called it a day and are ready for dinner, where Elmer the Cook (Alan Tuskes) is roasting a huge ox over a fire pit. Bill needs to take a dump before he eats, so he leaves for the forest without his axe. When he returns, he finds his entire crew and the other hired crew have been slaughtered, their heads and other body parts bloodily dismembered. A slightly tall man with a monstrous face appears and chases Bill into the log-sawing shack. Bill first loses an arm from the large round spinning blade and then he gets cut in half through the middle of his skull. Cut to the present at the Minnesota Department of Corrections, where Ms. K (Kristina Kopf) and the gruff Sgt. Hoke (Tom Downey) are running the "First Offender Program", where teens and young adults like Marty (Clifton Williams), Rosa (Victoria Ramos), Trish (Jill Evyn), Zack (Jesse Kove) and CB Tanner (Amber Thomas), the father of Sheriff Tanner (Tim Lovelace), have to survive a week in the Minnesota forest and they will have their records wiped clean if they stay out of trouble for six months. The trouble is CB is only semi-guilty, since she got behind the wheel of her car slightly buzzed ("Buzzed driving is drunk driving" is what those commercials say over and over) and a man ran a red light and smacked into her car. A man with influence with three arrests for DWI who used his power to blame CB and made her attorney take a plea deal. Daddy was powerless to do anything, because he was overruled at the State level. So she took the plea deal and is now in this program. People will thank her for that. Once everyone is in the forest (where Sgt.Read more ›
