I gave 5 stars ,kept me on the edge and entertained! Do not care if it's far fetched as some said ..

Bloody unlikely.

I thought the movie was sensationalism of the worst kind. While certain elements of the story were true, this movie had too many artistic liberties and way too many cliches to be worthwhile. We did not even choose to finish the movie, choosing instead to read the actual story. I would recommend you find another use for your 92 minutes.

This was my favorite film from 2015 and my favorite bear film. A couple from Toronto, Alex and Jen, go on a weekend trip camping. Alex chooses the place, a mountain he went to as a child. The ranger tells them some of the areas of the park are closed off, but Alex wants to propose at the lake he went to as a child so he ignores the ranger's warning. He also takes Jen's cell phone out of her pack and leaves it in the car. The first night they meet a backpacker from Ireland who is insulting and rude and makes several passes at Jen. They fight the second day and Alex is afraid to admit that he is hopelessly lost. They unwittingly walk off trail and into the home territory of a mankilling bear. That first day Alex smashed his toe by dropping their canoe on it and it's been bleeding. Bears smell blood like sharks do, from miles away. So they are being stalked. The second night, the bear attacks their food bag strung up in a tree and Alex tells Jen it's raccoons. That third day is when they reach the end of what he thinks is the trail and there is no lake anywhere in sight. They are hopelessly lost with no phone. The bear catches up with them that night and again the next morning. It's graphic but not nearly as graphic as it could've been. Much of it is sound and the visuals are left to your imagination. Alex did everything wrong. Jen did everything right. It should be no surprise who lives and who dies.

A good reminder for all who backpack to not become complacent about wild life dangers. Don't take your safe travels to date for granted that all trips in the future will be threat-free.

Definitely NOT boring. Believable and interesting story. Looks pretty real.

Well done.

Not an effective survival thriller. The way they get lost is very cliche, and there are long stretches of nothing happening. Watch The Edge instead
