If well-meaning people didn't make stupid choices -- and if cellphones worked everywhere -- way fewer vacation-from-hell thrillers would probably be made.
The Canyon is undermined by the expectation of a big payoff that never comes.
The best thing about this would-be nature thriller is Will Patton's zesty performance as a cackling, crazed muleskinner, a wily old hand who exits far too soon. There's nothing much to replace him, so we're in for a long 102 minutes.
Hint to newlyweds: Don't honeymoon in a primeval wilderness populated by diamondback rattlesnakes, aggressive wolves and alcoholic wilderness guides.
The Canyon is so singularly inept it gives you a whole new appreciation for the ept.
The Canyon could be named for the gaping expanse between its preposterously silly dialogue and sturdy, at times urgent direction.
In the absence of common sense or basic survival skills, when the end comes, for both the characters and the audience, it's a very welcome rescue indeed.
Watch this... or a giant hole in the ground. Same difference.
Take Open Water, subtract the Caribbean, substitute the Grand Canyon, and you have The Canyon.
A taut, unpredictable and intense thriller. You'll never look at the Grand Canyon the same way again.
The Canyon attests to how a first-rate character actor can elevate a poor film to the ranks of the mediocre.
For a story so bald on narrative incident, The Canyon is sweaty-palms scary.
I have no idea where the 10million dollar budget went, but this cautionary tale of yuppies getting lost in the grand canyon is well done, but nothing revolutionary. The final act is probably the strongest, which is rare.
I have never heard of this movie, but wow was it good! It has a really shocking ending, too, which really makes or breaks a movie for me. I definitely recommend this.
