I was Rooting For The Animals
By Rufus T. Firefly
The movie is filled with big time actors and is actually pretty good if you can get past the slow opening and boring dialogue. It makes animals of all kinds attack people in coordinated efforts. So its a cross between B-Movie and horror/suspense. I would bet that this Eco-movie had a few animal rights violations because there are numerous scenes of main characters punching dogs and other stunts which could have terrified or injured animals. So while the movie endeavors to promote awareness of Ozone layer depletion, it takes a step backwards in the other eco-activist pursuit of animal rights.
As a side note, seeing Leslie Neilson play as an antagonist was somewhat upsetting.

Don't expect too much but have a bit of tongue in cheek.
By Russell S
1976 brings us this predictable but still fun at times addition to the (at the time) popular genre of the world striking back at the horrible humans that are destroying the planet. This attack is being led by a hawk and his job is to pick off a group of 11 mountain hikers. He uses mountain lions, bears, birds etc. This is fun enough but the story is, as I said very predictable and the worst thing about this is the acting! And I mean by everyone...Christopher George and by extension his wife Linda Daye George both awful by themselves even worse together. And yes all the others are equally bad but the standout worst was (I hate to say this) Leslie Nielsen as the belligerent and wants to be the alpha guy who takes off with a group and then does terrible things to them.

but its a fun movie to watch
Amusing thriller - a blast from the past! Husband and wife actors Christopher and Linda Day George put in a solid, if uninspiring performance. Leslie Neilson steals the movie in his over the top villain role. He is so unbelievably nasty compared to his more recent dry comedy characterizations. The plot and supposed scientific explanations are ludicrous. There are obvious plot holes and goofs, and the ending kind of fizzles out, but its a fun movie to watch, and has some great animal photography worthy of a nature special. Very scenic, the version Amazon streams is HD and beautiful in spots.
