Critic Reviews for Boar
For now, Boar is mostly good fun, but, as with far too many creature features, it ultimately falls flat once the creature is revealed in all its CG non-glory.
Sometimes you want to see a man's leg get wrapped in barbed wire before being dragged, screaming into the dark by a giant boar.
An exasperating mess, unredeemed even by the grindhouse thrill of copious gorings and disembowelments.
Boar is nothing more and nothing less than what it says on the tin: a gruesome creature feature that's as Australian as it gets.
With a cast that any genre fan will tune in for, Boar is a great film to watch on the couch with friends and a bunch of beer on hand. I have to score the flick as I would every film, but for a genre creature feature, take the time to watch the film.
Audience Reviews for Boar
The narrative for this film is non existent and the characters are ultra thin. It's hard to support Australian indie horror films when they can't do the basics. I understand the budget restraints, but that means you need a strong character foundation. Characters make bizarre choices and are incredibly one dimensional. The biggest issue is the creature and that should have been one of the biggest reveals. Showing the creature in the daylight was a bold but ultimately flawed move. On the extras of Razorback the director looks back at the error of showing the creature in the daylight. People are dispensed at an alarming rate and you really don't have any interest for them. There isn't any true unpredictability here and the film is not long, but it will test your patience. I wanted to enjoy this as a fun creature feature, but like Red Billabong it never comes together. 07/04/2019
The very ending did turn me off a bit, I'll cop to that, but up until that point, Boar was basically Ockerassic Park.
