A grand adventure with epic imagery (the canyon, caves, rivers and the indelible Yvonne Strahovski). inspires the travel bug.

HASH(0xa37d3dc8) out of 5 stars Formulaic, with some credible acting Dec 26 2009
By Z Hayes - Published on
Format: DVD
In "Open Water" (2003), a pair of scuba divers (who were also a couple) got stranded in the middle of the ocean and found themselves imperiled by a school of sharks. Well, in "The Canyon", we have a newly-married couple stranded somewhere in the Grand Canyon and hunted by wolves. It's basically a survival-type drama with some twists, but on the whole is quite formulaic. What makes this watchable (though more as a rental and not a purchase) is the acting, which I thought was quite alright, considering this is a low-budget indie flick. The story centers around Nick (Eion Bailey) and Lori (Yvonne Strahovski) who are a pair of newly-weds and eager for adventure (well, Nick mainly) - Nick's idea of a perfect honeymoon is to explore the deepest recesses of the canyon via muleback. Unfortunately, Nick did not have the foresight to apply for a permit for their excursion and the pair decide to take on the proffered services of a grizzled old guide Henry (Will Patton).

Will Patton makes the initial part of this movie quite watchable with his dry humor and vast knowledge of the canyon - he really is quite a hoot to watch in his role as guide. Unfortunately, his role is rather shortlived, and it is left to Nick and Lori to carry the rest of the movie through as the stranded pair are forced to rely on their wits to stay alive and make it out of the canyon, even as tragedy and danger stalk them in the form of a pack of determined wolves. Eion Bailey's Nick is quite average in his role as the smart ass new husband who uses his persuasive skills in getting Lori to agree to his adventure - a plan that seems doomed from the beginning considering his lack of planning and foresight.His character as such is hard to empathize with. Lori as portrayed by Yvonne Strahovski has more of a screen presence and manages to convey a wider range of emotions convincingly and had me rooting for her all through the movie. The highlight of this movie is actually the gorgeous cinematography of the canyon - simply breathtaking. On the whole, this is basically a been-there-done-that sort of survival drama, and I'd recommend it as a rental at best.

HASH(0xa4d2a120) out of 5 stars Wolves Will Be Wolves Dec 21 2009
By Robbie Banfitch - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film would fit nicely in a gift set with "Open Water" and "Black Water". Like its less-than-warm-blooded brethren, "The Canyon" finds an attractive couple trapped in raw wilderness, ultimately pit face to face with Mother Nature and her drones - in this case, wolves. There is stunning cinematography, beautiful scenery, and a fair level of intensity on display here, which makes the so-so script worthwhile. If you're the kind of person who enjoys man-against-nature pictures, "Canyon" is a perfect fit for a rainy afternoon. Even if one isn't a lover of eco-horror, the wolves used are put on full display, and they are breathtaking to behold. No CGI here.... thank the films Gods for that one. All in all, this is an entertaining thriller with more to admire than to roll the eyes at, and even when the eyes are rolling, they're rolling over a gorgeous surface.

HASH(0xa36f3e88) out of 5 stars One of my favorite survival movies Aug. 10 2014
By Robert J. Ruhf - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I love survival movies and this is definitely one of my favorites. "The Canyon" is about a newly married couple, Nick and Lori, who venture into the Grand Canyon on the backs of mules. Their guide is rather unconventional and seems far too willing to take unnecessary risks. Nevertheless, he is quite likable and has the best intentions. But sometimes intentions just aren't enough, and some days you just can't win. This apparently is one of those days. Things suddenly turn for the worse when the guide dies after being bitten and poisoned by a snake. Nick and Lori become lost and are unable to find their way out of the canyon. Further tragedy strikes when the two fall from a cliff, severely injuring Nick to the point where he is unable to move. This forces a transformation to occur in Lori's character. At first, she is little more than a follower. She simply goes along with Nick's strong will and spontaneous personality. Now, however, she is forced to take the lead if either of them are going to make it out alive. The acting of the three main stars is absolutely fantastic! They play their roles so convincingly and with such emotion that it almost feels real. I had to keep reminding myself that this was only a movie! The ending was completely unexpected and shocking. There is a reason why there are no 1-star ratings for this movie (at least as of the time that I am writing this). There is little about "The Canyon" that is worth criticizing.

There are no wolves in the Grand Canyon. Well there was one. The first seen there in 70 years. However it was shot to death. I know these stupid films need a monster to make a plot. But wolves don't work. Wolves also don't hunt humans and instead avoid humans, shying away and even abandoning a kill to avoid man. And wolves certainly don't need or deserve films that increase the chance of brain dead lunatics shooting them.

HASH(0xa4852b10) out of 5 stars Needed a Technical Advisor... Oct. 31 2012
By Redbanks - Published on
Good actors, almost probable story, but the credibility of the story tanked when they buried the guide without taking the only tool they had, his knife. Why wern't they wearing hats? Why didn't they take his clothes for further protection? Sun exposure and dehydration are the predomonent dangers in most exposed environments let alone the Grand Canyon... Next time consult anyone who has ever actually been exposed...
