Bear 2010 film review

Bear is about what you would normally expect for most straight to video Redbox flicks.  Low budget, not very original, but scores with a few redeeming qualities.

Bear is the story of two young couples stranded in a minivan in the California wilderness. They are attacked by a vicious grizzly bear that seems to have a motive to kill. But as night passes, the victims deal with another problem: their own dark secrets.


The good news is that the scenery makes for decent visuals. The film was shot in a California forest, and first time director John Rebel has a great eye for filming nature scenes.  I was also please to learn that the crew helped rebuild that forest when it was destroyed in an unrelated wildfire after filming.

The bad news is that the film is extremely low budget. It's plagued with bad lighting, and plenty weak dialogue. A real grizzly is used for most shots that don't involve humans, but a laughably bad costume is used for close-ups. While I did find the movie's "dark secrets" angle to be interesting, it doesn't change the fact that Bear is essentially rip-off of Cujo.

John Rebel is a first-time director, working with a bare-bones budget. That being said, cut Bear a little slack, don't expect a horror flick like Jaws. My suggestion is that you pass on buying the DVD until you give this one a rent through Redbox first.
