"Assault of the Sasquatch" Movie Review

                    Assault of the Sasquatch

Year made  -  2009

Rated  -  Unrated

Approx. time  -  85 min.

                                          Story line

Forest creature meets the big city. A poacher captures Sasquatch, but before he can deliver him to his client he is busted by game wardens.
He along with his impounded truck containing Sasquatch are brought into the middle of the city for holding in a sparsely filled police station. Soon afterwards the beast escapes from the truck. After treating his wounded foot and grabbing a bite to eat, he explores his new surrounding. He is soon spotted by two nerdy members of the Sasquatch Society peeping in a window. They spend the rest of the movie trying to relocate Sasquatch. As Sasquatch makes his way back to the police station he throws rocks at one his victim. Something that's often reported, with run ins with Sasquatch. However this attack
escalates to bigger rocks, then to a tire and then  a full size mailbox. Thank god there are no mailboxes in the forest.
Sasquatch then soon spots the poacher and will stop at nothing to get to him. In the end it becomes a bare knuckle, knock down brawl between the two. 
The acting wasn't great and I thought Sasquatch looked a little to much like a gorilla. The movie was shot at various locations in Connecticut. With most the the scenes shot in the city there wasn't much as scenery goes unless you like the dirty streets of the city. The best part of the movie was when the police station secretary / ex exotic dancer goes one on one with Sasquatch. She pulls a butterfly knife out of her garder and with a police shield she kicks his ass (balls). This scene was worth the price of emission. Sasquatch does get his revenge later.

If you like to laugh you might want to get this movie, Overall I give this movie a rating of 2 out of a possible 5. Tha acting wasn't great and some of the scenes didn't make sense, but it'll make you laugh.

Next week I'll be reviewing Primal
