Film Review: Rage Of The Yeti (2011)

Rage Of The Yeti

Rage Of The Yeti is a made for tv movie, specifically for the SyFy channel. I didn’t actually tune in until the first half hour had passed, but I managed to catch up pretty quickly. The film sees a group of treasure hunters searching for valuables in the Arctic. However, they run into trouble when the weather turns particularly bad and one by one group members start to disappear. 

Rage Of The Yeti is one of those films that’s so bad it’s good! As long as you watch it expecting a light hearted, stereotypical story you’ll enjoy it for what it is. Those that think it is a genuinely ‘bad’ film that was made by a bunch of amateurs are very wrong. As a film created purposefully for enjoyment it succeeds 100% in its mission. Sometimes film doesn’t need to be full of meaning and hidden depths.

The characters are forgettable, but it certainly wasn’t the worst acting I’ve seen. The CGI monsters were obviously fake, but they were well designed and more interesting that the typical bigfoot style yeti. The baby ones were particularly cute!

Although I wouldn’t watch this again, it did what it said on the tin and entertained me, so what more could you ask for!

Rating: 6/10
