By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on December 26, 2009
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.

I love survival movies and this is definitely one of my favorites. "The Canyon" is about a newly married couple, Nick and Lori, who venture into the Grand Canyon on the backs of mules. Their guide is rather unconventional and seems far too willing to take unnecessary risks. Nevertheless, he is quite likable and has the best intentions. But sometimes intentions just aren't enough, and some days you just can't win. This apparently is one of those days. Things suddenly turn for the worse when the guide dies after being bitten and poisoned by a snake. Nick and Lori become lost and are unable to find their way out of the canyon. Further tragedy strikes when the two fall from a cliff, severely injuring Nick to the point where he is unable to move. This forces a transformation to occur in Lori's character. At first, she is little more than a follower. She simply goes along with Nick's strong will and spontaneous personality. Now, however, she is forced to take the lead if either of them are going to make it out alive. The acting of the three main stars is absolutely fantastic! They play their roles so convincingly and with such emotion that it almost feels real. I had to keep reminding myself that this was only a movie! The ending was completely unexpected and shocking. There is a reason why there are no 1-star ratings for this movie (at least as of the time that I am writing this). There is little about "The Canyon" that is worth criticizing.

We are going to go to the Grand Canyon in 2017 so watching this couple and seeing what they went through was an eye opening experience. This movie makes a person think of the good and bad stuff that could happen when you are in unfamiliar territory. The most important thing I learned from this movie was to go with your gut and try to stick with it !!

Very unrealistic plot! Honeymoon couple can't get a permit to take a mule trip into the Grand Canyon, so they agree to go with this grizzled old guy they meet in a bar. He has years of experience so it looks like a good deal. As they are riding their mules, you wonder why the young couple isn't wearing sunglasses or hats. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who wants to see it, but the couple ends up alone and trying to get rescued before they die. Of course, they do things a reasonable person would never do. Three stars, but I don't recommend it.

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.
