This movie is so ridiculous that it's really enjoyable. I'm so tired of bad cgi that I was very excited by the guy in the silly Yeti suit. But to make things more interesting, they decided that the Yeti would sometimes be cgi, which made him look even more laughable. And in a twist unknown to Yeti's before, the cgi Yeti can jump so far he you could say he's flying. Oh silly flying Yeti.... there is no explanation for your power and you look ridiculous.
Highlights of the movie were:
- the desperate search for matches to build a fire while parts of the plane burn around them.
- the neatest, cleanest corpses from a plane crash ever - no blood, no ripped clothing, no dirt, no discernible trauma of any kind.
- although never mentioned in the first half of the movie, apparently the plane is on the edge of a cliff which is convenient for the Yeti to push it over.
- the guy who uses a severed arm as a splint for his broken leg.
- one of the girls says a monster stole one of the dead bodies but they don't believe her - the dead bodies are their team mates, they should recognize if someone is missing.
- when the girl says a second body has been stolen, they still can't figure it out.
- the group reluctantly decides to try cannibalism even though they don't want to eat their friends, but never thinks to look for the body parts that were around the crash site.
- the hunks of flesh are the color and shape of a piece of peanut butter fudge.
- the girl who is opposed to cannibalism puts the bodies into the fire so no one can eat them, thus effectively cooking them.
- this is the same girl who saw the Yeti take the dead bodies, yet never considers that the hungry Yeti now has nothing to eat except the survivors.
- the Yeti who does a stop, drop, and roll when set on fire.
- the only two characters whose names I remembered - Coach and Chubs - died in the crash.
- the girl who kills the rabbit with one shot says it is because she used to throw the javelin -this makes no sense since javelins are thrown for distance, not pinpoint accuracy.
- Lastly, when you try to emotionally affect your audience by having the group kill one of your own, it can't be a minor character that your audience has forgotten ever existed.
