Predictable, but still fun
No surprises here and fun if you play the "ClichÃ© Game": Watch the
movie and try to count the clichÃ©s. 1 point for standard clichÃ©, 5
points for ridiculous. I lost count after about 500 points.This is pretty much standard made-for-TV movie fare. With the
predictable moments fighting it out with the ridiculous moments for top
prize.One of my favorite "what the BLEEP" moments was when the Sheriff
finally decides to believe the "experts" and evacuate the town all he
says to the townsfolk is, "Grab your stuff and get out of town!" Since
the town is so small, "out of town" is about 200 yards away. Not a lot
of help...The actors do their best with a horrible script but, as another
reviewer stated, the women for the most part stand there screaming,
"What's happening!!" over and over. There is a character named Zoe that
you really want to slap repeatedly after 2 or 3 scenes...Watch this for an excellent lesson on how to make a really bad movie!
How can you not love this stuff?
I don't get the negative reviews, I thought it was fun. I mean, it's
about a monster living in a mountain, what are you expecting?!?! It had
better characters than "2012" and better story and effects than a ton
of the Syfy movies. It says on this page the budget was $1.3 million
whereas Avatar's budget was over $300 million! How much can you do for
that little? Would've loved to see more of the behemoth at the end,
reviewer was right about that. A lot of build up to very little screen
time. Would love to have seen it break free and crush the town! Cast
was good with what they had to work with. I got a kick out of it. The
monster was awesome (when it finally showed up)!
Disappointing ... I expected better from this cast
There are B movies that are good, cheesy fun and then there are B
movies like "Behemoth." Given that I've seen most of these actors in
other shows, and all have them been pretty good ... especially Ed Quinn
who plays the lead ... I was expecting more from this film.I was dismayed and disappointed when most of the acting was wooden ...
almost like Tippy Hedron watching the the line of fire at the end of
"The Birds." The dialogue was stilted, the timing was off and
basically, "Behemoth" left me scratching my head.For example, Ed Quinn, who is pretty darn awesome as Nathan Stark in
"Eureka," seemed like he was sleep walking through this movie. On top
of that, the plot was predictable, the action was less than exciting
and the climax was almost anti-climactic. Unless you just can't resist
watching yet another over-sized monster movie, I'd recommend you pass
on this one.

By the numbers monster movie.
Its almost as if the producers just looked at a list of clichÃ©s and
just picked the ones they like from it. Its all here. The pretty
scientist, the handsome local to serve as a foil to create a sexual
tension, the young college age couple, the old man who knows what is
happening but everyone thinks is crazy, the skeptical sheriff, the
mysterious, cryptic government agent along with all the usual stuff
about how mankind is causing the earth and environment to fight back
against all the horrible things manking has done to it. This time its
in the form of a creature who supposedly has the power to destroy all
life on earth as we know it. To me it just looks like a poor mans
Kraken from Clash of the Titans. Don't't waste your time.
