"In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before."
Well we all love a giant pig movie don't we? One of my personal favourites is the Ozploitation classic Razorback so when i got offered a screener for Boar i jumped a the chance, Sadly it's definitely no Razorback.
It stars John Jarrat in a nice guy role for a change and horror legend Bill Mosley but for me even those two couldn't save it. It's basically a film of two halves ad you do get to see plenty of the Boar and he is huge but the biggest problem for me lay in the difference between the puppet version that looked pretty damn good and the CGI version which i must say for me personally looked terrible!
There's gore a plenty and it goes along at a decent steady pace but i got bored (sorry) and by the end i really didn't care about any of the characters who lived and died.
In saying that it's not the worse movie i have ever seen and there is some good standout out deaths but in summing up as a whole film it just didn't work for me personally, It's a decent watch if the weathers shit and there's nothing on but i wouldn't go out of my way or get too excited about seeing it,
