I get why the writers do this - they have a limited amount of time to get the characters into a vehicle so they can promptly start dying at their monster-infested destination, and there are only so many ways you can show a frat boy being a real jerk to his girlfriend.
One way to do this is by kicking her out of the front seat. I repeat: ONE WAY. There are other ways. But shlock horror filmmakers apparently don't know any other way because this exact sequence happened in Lockjaw: Rise of the Kulev Serpent. And yet Lockjaw was better than this movie.
Instead of clipping some guy's wife with a SUV like in Lockjaw, the collected idiots in Grizzly Rage run over a bear cub. This happens because they 1) decide to take an out-of-the-way path, 2) are driving like idiots while hooting and hollering, and 3) aren't paying attention to the road. Said idiots then dither uselessly trying to figure out what to do about the bear cub, knowing that mama grizzly is surely on her way for revenge. Thus the title.
There are no special effects to speak of in this film. There's no CGI, because there's nothing to animate. It's just spliced bear footage, a guy in a bear suit, actors screaming at things off camera, and unbelievably boring sequences in which the four cast members climb, walk, jog, run, and otherwise waste 80 minutes of your life you will never get back.Read more ›
I GET it...
This is a cheap movie, and you can't afford a script or production values, or sense, or blah blah blah
But if you can't even give the viewer some cheap man (or girl!) thrills, then WHAT is the point of making a movie THIS BAD?
You can't afford a script
You can't afford a good director
You can't afford.... well... ANYTHING
If you are NOT gonna give us some pretty people skin, then...
It's been MONTHS since I suffered thru this abomination, and it STILL hurts...
This movie is too bad for even MST3K to give it a pass
Back to "Grizzly Rage", it's a just don't take serious movie have a sense of humor and your more than likely to get some chuckles and laughs.
This "Maneater" series from the Sci-Fi channel isn't scoring high points with me. Grizzly Rage was rather boring. I don't mind four cast members stranded and wandering around with no action for minutes on end, but there has to be some kind of hook for a movie like this to work. Piles and piles of gore would have helped. Instead the bear tends to just throw people in the air. Since a real bear was used(thank God), there are no scenes of it actually attacking people. You see quick cuts of the bear roaring and a comic book like dash of animated blood that streaks across the screen. That would be fine if it wasn't the only trick in the director's bag.
Hell, I'm not gonna write a novel about this movie. Watch it at your own risk if you think you can....cough...cough...bear it.
This is a `confined-location' creature-on-the-loose film in the manner of "Prey" and "Black Water," both also released in 2007. Like those films "Grizzly Rage" takes the material seriously with zero self-parodying, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. The main problem with all three films is their thin plots. A group of people are harassed and hunted by a fearsome animal (a bear, lion and croc respectively) in a confined location. Some might survive, some won't. Both "Prey" and "Black Water" are able to (barely) get over this weakness with pretty good results, but "Grizzly Rage" fails.
There's just too much time devoted to what is essentially a 45-minute story, which means there's about 35-40 minutes of padding where we watch people climb cliffs, walk in the forest, stroll in their SUV, have meaningless conversations, etc. Needless to say, these scenes are mind-numbingly boring.
Another problem is an overlong and unbelievable sequence where the survivors coast in their broke-down SUV when, up to that point, there was no evidence of hilly terrain to coast down - it's all relatively flat (!). This reflects unimaginative, pad-the-runtime writing.Read more ›
