Critic Reviews for The Canyon
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.
Audience Reviews for The Canyon
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.
