Real vs. VFX
2 April 2017 | by (Sarasota) – See all my reviews

Although this film is being compared to "Revenant" it can stand on its own merits. Call me old fashioned but, I love the fact they used a real grizzly. This not only added to the realism of the film but created film viewer anxiety. The aerial cinematography is outstanding and is not overdone. As with many movies where the editing around footprints in the snow falls short, this did not. The director took special care to work in the fresh snow. Several times I thought of the real danger the actors could be walking into.

Bottom line, the film had one shortcoming, the score. Even though the music blends into the scenes beautifully, it doesn't fit the wilds of Montana.
