Well, where to begin with this one...fantastic premise. The found footage genre has had somewhat of a recent boom with the likes of Paranormal Activity. There has been a sudden influx of concepts in an effort to bring something new to the genre, we have seen trolls, ghosts, demons, witches and even giant aliens (Cloverfield) so it was nice to have something around the legend of Big Foot!
The cast are another bunch of unknowns doing their best, however they do not seem to gel well at all. I was constantly aware that I was watching 'acting'. When they do not make much effort to warm your heart, it follows that you do not feel all that much when they ultimately peg it! Although I will say that the 'Big Foot expert' was probably the most relatable! With a bit of a throw back to Quint from Jaws!
The execution starts well, although the plot seems to be very linear and predictable to begin with, they make the rookie mistakes that people just would not make in real life! The film is paced well and build suspense in the right areas, with a couple of 'oh s**t moments'!
However as the film trots towards the crescendo the legend is replaced by something new and mysterious... (no plot spoiling here!) and boarders on the somewhat ridiculous! It has very little replay value but for what it is...it's o.k.
Found footage fans will defiantly take away something new.
