Nice scenery but not great film

Kind of boring and a bit amateur . Had potential but way too slow and clunky.Way too many drone shots of trees. The acting wasnt bad but the story was like a high school drama attempt. The bear scenes were near comical, special effects childish . Altogether a waste of time am afraid !

1 / 10

Unpleasant to watch

Watching Woodland was similar to observing two drunks fight in a street because of half a bottle of flat warm beer. It was quite depressing.

The characters are obnoxious and the whole story is totally meaningless.Woodland is another of artsy-fartsy independent film that gives the impression of depth, but in the end it is as deep of a puddle of water in the middle Sahara during summer.

It is not worth your time

3 / 10

A supernatural horror lacking in horror and supernatural elements

Intensely boring.The film falls into a pattern of following one man's daily routine, and so we get him doing the same things over and over again. Here he is, walking through the woods, talking about trees. Here he is fishing with his boss, the only other character to mention. Here he is not experiencing paranormal events or anything horrifying.

It's well filmed. The cast is okay, although they don't really have anything to work with. The old man gets a couple of moments to act towards the end. There aren't a lot of effects, but those they use are fine. There just isn't anything going on. Boring cyclical activities, and very occasionally something mildly creepy happens.

The horror elements are limited. There's a girl in make-up, there's a big CGI shadow of something we don't get to see, and there's a mild air of fatalism that pervades the entire movie.

I'll avoid spoilers, but I'll tell you that the movie really goes nowhere. The plot doesn't develop, there's no tension, and there's no climax.

9 / 10

Interesting and well done!

I was intrigued by this movie and waited a while to watch it. Now that it's out I was so excited and it was worth the wait! I really liked the two leads and the overall theme of drug addiction, living on an island, and the creepy-thriller aspects really made it fun to watch!

Drugs are bad, m'kay?

The only good thing in this mess of a movie is its actors. Both Richard Harmon and Philip Granger were solid and believable. The rest is barely watchable, unfortunately. A poorly written script delivers a truly abhorrent lead character that is as interesting as a roach caught in a jar trap: you're annoyed by him and can't wait for him to drop dead; disappointing cinematography fails to capture a beautiful Canadian landscapes; and ludicrous CGI scares away even those who came to terms with all the above. 'Woodland' could be much better that it is. A huge waste of an acting skills.
