Cool idea but with stupid decisions

The dad shoots one of the wolves through the front door. The wolf whimpers and then there's silence. The dad slowly opens up to find blood on the porch but no body. Keeping the door open, he does the ever-typical move of assuming it must've ran off and died by turning around, shrugging, before being tackled from behind. Dumb, dumb, dumb. And all too typical. An earlier part isn't quite as dumb because he wouldn't've been able to outrun the wolves, but still, it's unrealistic to just stand there and not even try. I'm talking about the agent taking a leak in the woods after his visit to the house. Most of all, how hungry would these animals be after a full meal of the agent in the latter part of the day. Almost the entire movie takes place over the course of only one day and they just keep picking individuals off: the old couple at the beginning just the night before, then the agent in the afternoon, then the cop that night.

E for effort

I love scary movies. However, I am old and have seen so many movies that this one reminds me of the old movies back in the seventies.

the characters do such stupid things you find yourself throwing popcorn at the screen or cheering for the wolves. They were long haired dutch shepherds that look more like wolves than wolves do.

the cliche's are piled on from the flashlight that doesn't work. The phone is out! The radio don't work! I am running! oh I trip! Let me rattle some cans to see if anything is there! To the 'lets split up' The male lead crashes into a police car, beats up a wolf and then runs off, never thinking that a cop car might, just might have additional firepower like a shotgun.

They go back and forth with his deer rifle,(that looked strangely like a pellet gun) one time he would have ammo, another time, he wouldn't, his kid kept hiding bullets and they never explained why.

The wolves were inconsistent, one minute their senses were razor keen and they even cut the power and the telephone (you might glimpse the wolf wearing the yellow hard hat) the next they would walk dully past the character hiding behind the door. I can't even put that one over on my golden retriever.

Speaking of which, they heard their family dog barking early in the movie and then yipe! implying that the wolves got him for added suspense. But at the end of the movie he was alive again!

A good movie to watch if you have buddies over.

A Pack A Day

The Pack: 6 out of 10: Nature gone wild films are a particular pleasure of mine because they are, by their very nature, silly. The Pack, unfortunately, is yet another attempt to make a serious one.

Of all the horror genres nature gone wild is one of the hardest to pull off in a serious role. Recently Liam Neeson's The Grey pulled this off fairly well but it had the advantage of well Liam Neeson. The Pack has the always stunning Anna Lise Phillips, who admittedly is a discount Radha Mitchell, but alas she is not Liam.

The Packs much bigger problem, besides tone and a lack of Liam, is a lack of cannon fodder. A good nature gone wild film needs people for nature to go wild against. The pack has an entire cast of six people.

The main plot of The Pack is about a farmer who is isolated, in debt up to his eyeballs, has had all his sheep killed by wild dogs and whose entire family unit is straining to the breaking point. An evil banker comes by and offers him lots of money and debt forgiveness to "give up his land" and go live in a condo overlooking an Australian beach while his wife works at a nice vet clinic in a strip mall down the street. In grand movie tradition he, of course, kicks the evil banker off his land (the same guy he presumably borrowed money from before the movie started) and declares no one will take his land. (Which no one would if he would stop borrowing against itÂ… just saying)

This is a well-worn head scratching trope and The Packs version is particularly silly. Anyway, the family is attacked by wild dogs. Wife, who is a vet mind you, forgets dogs have a sense of smell and goes for the stay still and be quiet approach. Dogs slowly walk around the house looking menacingly. And that is about all because once again this is a nature gone wild film with six people.

Well filmed with a good cast but it takes itself too seriously and simply lets itself down when it comes to genre standards. There just isn't that much there, there.
