Despite budget interference, the film romped along with many scenes being okay despite fluctuation, which often happens when the CGI stuff is less than King Kong....a lot less. It is a sort of slasher film with 'bodycount' killings....quite watchable for its time on screen....it does suffer from continuation deficiencies....but most of the budget horror stuff does...with scenes that resemble 'model-making' backdrops...and fire that lacks reality....the cinematography is okay with good picture quality, and most of the time the actors try to convince.....there are many other films far worse....and this isn't.

This story is based on the tale of Paul Bunyan, in this case born with a deformity, with triple the lifespan of a normal human but the intellect of a child. While working with a group of lumberjacks, he kills them all after they kill and eat his only (animal) friend. He is then outlawed and only comes back into the open when a group of young offenders happen upon his home 100-odd years later and unwittingly steal one of his trophies. To get his belongings back he goes on a killing spree.

This film has been made to take a bizarre idea and milk it for all it's worth. And if you don't ask too many questions it is reasonable entertainment if you like this sort of film. The filmmakers do a fair job of introducing the (dispensable) characters, weaving the Paul Bunyan character into the story and bringing it all together in the end. Digital effects are heavily relied upon to make the whole thing work, as the monster is supposed to be 5 metres tall. And this is where the production goes wrong far too often. At times, the digital Paul Bunyan comes across quite well but on far too many occasions the effects are awful. It doesn't help that he keeps changing height, which is quite distracting.

It's not completely awful but certainly nothing special that you will remember tomorrow.
