It isn't as nutty as it could have been, and it certainly isn't as nutty as its description suggests.
It's gorgeous to look at and plays brilliantly as a horror thriller, be it of nature vs man or locals vs outsiders.
Rarely as fun or exciting as its premise might've indicated...
Jaws with a wiggly tail! Ferocious and Fun!
The atmosphere of the Australian Outback makes this a decent oversized-creature-on-the-loose thriller.
Boars can be downright merciless in their choice of victims as exemplified by the superlative B-movie 'Razorback'. The carnivorous boar in question eviscerates a pregnant woman, a toddler in his crib and worst of all, a vintage television set. Each attack is staged like an earthquake with the boar stampeding like a snarling freight train while the tremor-induced camera shakes uncontrollably. More than anything else in this rollicking offering from the Australian outback, the sun-dappled, orange-tinted cinematography is inimitable. It could almost be described as one of the most picturesque exploitation movies ever made. Of course, the film is chockful of hoary cliches like the barroom xenophobia of the local towards the American outsiders and the Robert Shaw-esque hunter with a revenge bent against the pernicious critter ("There are only 2 states of being-dangerous or dead."). There is also a jaunty dose of satirical bite around animal rights activism and whether these notably non-docile creatures need the crusading vocal support of people. The kamikaze visual energy of a young Sam Raimi sustains the film's momentum through a somewhat soggy midsection that prematurely introduces a love interest after the main character's wife has just been gored. Overall though, 'Razorback' is a rip-roaring juggernaut in the usually shallow pool of man-vs.-nature creature features.
Creature feature films are always a good bet when it comes to deliver terrific mindless entertainment. Razorback is one of the best films in the genre. I've seen my fair share of films in this genre, and this is one of the most memorable pictures in the genre. There have been plenty of great movies in the nature gone wild genre; many of them bring original thrilling ideas to the screen. Razorback is a stellar film in the genre, and there are some truly chilling scenes before all the carnage caused by the razorback itself. There are some pretty good performances here and director Russell Mulcahy crafts a solid horror picture that steadily builds up the fear in the viewer. Mulcahy would later direct the cult hit Highlander, but Razorback is one of his standout films. This is a well crafted film that is sure to please genre fans. In terms of killer creature films, Razorback is a stunning film that definitely warrants a view from viewers that enjoy films such as Jaws, Piranha, Alligator and countless others. The film is aided by terrific atmosphere, which add to the enjoyment and tense experience of the picture. In the nature gone wild genre, there have been many great films, but Razorback is exceptional. Director Russell Mulcahy opts to direct a more serious film that we've previously seen in this genre, and gives us a movie that generates the tension, with good performances and a memorable creature that creates the carnage. This is one of the darker films I've seen in the genre, and in turn is among the finest as well. There are plenty of bone chilling moments to be had with this one, and Razorback is one of the most surprising Aussie films of the 1980's. Razorback is a great film with a truly unique villain, a giant razorback wild boar. That may sound a tad silly, but there's enough serious material at work on-screen to make this one a standout horror feature. Definitely worth checking out if you love nature gone wild horror films.
Great movie, bad giant pig.
Razorback starts off rather grizzly. Killing off a child and thus cementing it's intentions. Razorback isn't gonna take any prisoners. Some years later, a female journalist shows up and through a surprising series of events, her fiancÃ© soon shows up. Razorback is Jaws with a pig, but with a few novel twists. The outback setting is suitably dry and dead and very lonely. There was one character I could not stand. He ruined the film for me, and went from goonish comic relief to kneecap hacker. There was no consistency in the writing of this character or the acting and I genuinely hated every second he was on. Edit him out and this could have been really great.
