But when their plane crashes in the middle of nowhere, a strong mind game erupts between the clever husband and the jealous young photographer as they try to get back to civilization.
Plot: The plane carrying wealthy Charles Morse crashes down in the Alaskan wilderness. Together with the two other passengers, photographer Robert and assistant Stephen, Charles devises a plan to help them reach civilization. However, his biggest obstacle might not be the elements, or even the Kodiak bear stalking them — it could be Robert, whom Charles suspects is having an affair with his wife and would not mind seeing him dead.

Jaws with Fur!
This film was a revelation! When it was on general release in the cinema, I gave it a wide berth. I can’t remember why, probably the combination of a weak title, Alec Baldwin in a starring role and a really unimaginative trailer. I’ve just seen it on a 14-inch TV screen and am so sorry I didn’t catch it on the big screen (or even a 26-inch TV!).
David Mamet can write but he knows his place! This is an action adventure movie and so Mamet is not trying to make any great philosophical point. He does provide a wide variety of thematic ingredients (man V nature, youth V age, brains V brawn, machismo, infidelity) to ensure that the story line is far more interesting than most of Hollywood’s action-movie schlock. And, of course, a furry killing machine that can smell a man from 10 miles and run through the forest at 30 mph!
Charles, (Anthony Hopkins’ erudite billionaire character) starts out as the vulnerable, isolated character of the film. He’s married to Mickey, his photo-model wife(Elle can act herself!) flirts quite openly with Bob the handsome, younger photographer (Baldwin). Charles seems set up for a fall. In his self-effacing way, he confesses to knowing a lot “in theory” but not being great at “practical application”.
So when the plane crashes into an icy lake, Charles is the one for whom you most fear but that’s when all the surprises start……….
The biggest disappointment for me is that a fine actor such as Harold Perrineau finds himself playing a role that is a classical Hollywood cliché, the nice black guy who gets killed. When are they going to cut this crap out? Either kill the guy in the crash or give him a character but don’t just make him plot fodder. Seeing Stephen (Perrineau) with the other two on the lake shore, you just knew he would have all the longevity in this film as James Bond’s first female conquest. As David Mamet doesn’t share the writing credits with a studio committee or an executive producer, I suppose he has to take responsibility.
That said, this is a really gripping film. Well directed photographed and acted (even by Baldwin!). And the bear! How long do you have?
The shots where you (from Charles point of view) are staring down the roaring bear’s throat and can see his uvula through an emerging cloud of steamy breath are just brilliant. I could almost smell that bear. I believe they made extensive use of prosthetics. Excellent FX!
Man vs Man vs Wild
This is both a psychological thriller and an authentic, wilderness survival movie. It pits man against the magnificent but harsh Alaskan wilderness, and, at the same time, it also pits man against man in a powerful, primitive struggle over a beautiful woman..a very beautiful woman–Elle Macpherson. Alex Baldwim is excellent as the confident, aggressive, young usurper, always looking for ways to bring down his competition, and Anthony Hopkins is exceptional as the wealthy, intelligent, aristocratic gentleman husband who gracefully endures his attacks while gradually realizing the painful truth. The thing i liked the most about this film is that they both have to depend on each other for survival in the Alaskan wild, while simultaneously dealing with their powerful emotions about each other and the relationship situation. The combination makes this film affect the sensibilities like no other i have seen. Well worth watching. The review alongside the movie poster did not begin to cover this film as it deserves to be.
