Critic Reviews for Dying Breed
Even by the low standards of other horror-movie victims, the foursome here seem blithely clueless, always splitting up for no good reason and running headlong into ambushes.
If Geoffrey Hall's cinematography is eerily beautiful, capturing the isolation and subdued menace of the Tasmanian hinterlands, then there is little else in Dying Breed that, to quote protagonist Nina, "nobody's ever seen before".
The setting is the island of Tasmania rather than the Australian outback, but after WOLF CREEK and STORM WARNING, any city folk stupid enough to wander this far off the track deserve whatever they get - and boy, do they get it.
It tries hard to be horrific and gruesome, even introducing a bit of fashionable torture near the end, but only the most credulous will find it genuinely scary.
Audience Reviews for Dying Breed
Enough with these Australian outback cannibal stories. Sheesh..
Middling film with semi-tolerable characters doing various stupid things. There are hints of a better, more interesting film occasionally, but it never fully develops.
I decided to watch this movie because I saw Leigh Whannell was in it. I'm glad he's still alive, I was sad after I watched Saw. The movie definitely wasn't as bad as some of the FearNet movies I've seen. I did have some problems with it though, like the amount of unnecessary characters. Only a handful of characters seemed important and contributed something to the plot. I wasn't really feeling the plot either. I was more interested in the sister's story to be honest. She seemed like she went through hell, and it looked awesome. Sadly, there was not too much focus on that part, only the occasional flashbacks. I think if the sister's story had been the main plot, the movie would've been more enjoyable. ....I liked the twist. I didn't see that coming. It was a pretty okay movie. I actually watched the whole thing and didn't fall asleep. That says something.
