Grizzly

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

'No way!' twice in the first five lines of dialogue let you know what to expect from this attempt to ape Jaws, so to speak. The strictly B feature cast plays a team of Forest Rangers (including boozy maverick and fey conservationist, as in Jaws) chasing an alleged twenty-footer who eats girl campers. Alleged, because whenever the bear is seen from a normal angle, he is quite obviously of medium build; much of the other marauding is done from his own point of view (as in King Kong), which equally fails to convince. The heavy-breathing soundtrack accompanying these attacks is at least preferable to lines like 'While you've been sitting on your fat ass, I've made this forest part of me'.
