It was okay lots of cliches
Verified purchase
It was what you would expect from a B movie. Stupid young people that you hope the monster gets simply because you're tired of their attitude, and girls put in harm's way by going into nature with impulsive young men who have limited life experience and are incapable of protecting them from danger. (B-movie note to parents: Don't let your daughters go on nature trips without teaching them wilderness survival skills). Women tripping when running or stopping to stand and cry so whatever is chasing them can catch them, whiney men who won't shut up drawing attention to themselves when they need to be quiet to avoid danger. A reminder of natural selection, those who falter...die. Again, the movie was okay, Okay enough that I don't care how fake the ogre looked, but it was funny that it wore a loin cloth, like WHY would it even care?

Not the worst thing on Prime, but close
Verified purchase
CGI -- terrible
Acting -- pretty passable, actually
Characters -- unlikable
Plot -- ridiculous
Plot holes -- countless
Watchable -- barely

If you get through the whole thing without skipping ahead, you must have been participating in a drinking game or enjoy watching slow-motion train-wrecks. The acting wasn't bad, which is the only reason I give two stars instead of one star.

Bad and then worse and then can't watch anymore
Verified purchase
It started out bad. Acting is horrible. Special effects are like a grade school project. The plot...Ah who needs it. And then even the camera angles were stupid. It just doesn't make sense. Watch it only for the reason that you can be amazed at what movie production companies think we'll pay to watch.

Oh c'mon guys....it wasn't that bad! I have read the reviews. It's a B rated lame movie. What do ya expect? It is what is. Just go with it.
I for one found it entertaining and actually enjoyed it. Heck it's alot better than watching that crap on tv. Plus it's a free movie with Prime. Ya can't go wrong with that!

Very surprised how good it was.

I loved it.
The plot was actually great and somewhat original, acting was way above par for a creature feature, characters believable and wonderful ending.
CGI was horrible, the blood and dismemberments incredibly fake looking...absolutely fantastic since that’s exactly what I was expecting.
Hey it’s a b movie and I was delighted at no, too dark to see/shaky camera/stupid unprepared teenagers out in the woods/ useless character conflicts or romance to detract from the plot.
Just a good solid fairytale type creature feature with a believable storyline.
No swearing and they were dressed for the cold so all in all great mindcandy for the whole family.

Fine for what it is

Getting quite old now, 'Ogre' is a 2007 Canadian made-for-TV movie.

A group of twenty-somethings go out in search of a mythical village which is supposedly located in the middle of nowhere. Of course, they manage to find it and stumble into a place held in time where the Ogre demands an annual sacrifice.

While done fairly well for a TV movie, unfortunately the story just isn't as interesting as it might have been. It is actually structured reasonable well (with shades of 'The Village' being seen in the idea of the lost town and the brave heroine trying to set right the years of wrong), but it's all completely predictable and most of the characters just aren't that interesting. It's also a bit long at 97 minutes and would have benefited by an increase in the pace if 10 minutes had been cut out of the middle section which did tend to drag a bit.

For a 2007 production, the digital effects are passable with the Ogre being a big cartoon but better than you might expect.

At the end of the day, it's a bit much to be too hard on the production - this is a small budget film which does what it does competently. Just switch it on with your expectations suitably set.

If your going to sit in one place for a long time watching a computer screen or a TV set up. You'll like this one. The ogre monster is from a mythological story I read Greek Mythology Book in high school had the same humanoid Monster can't reason with it is to be a flesh eating thing it's going to take more than 3 or 4 to kill. They eventually gather forces and do an all out attack. Lots of magic wipes out arguments. I love doing what's going to happen next and always know it. They got me once or twice but most of it I saw in other movies.

Bad CGI
Verified purchase
I only lasted about 10 or 15 minutes. No acting can sometimes be compensated with really good CGI and a good script is not able to be replaced by either. This movie had none of these movie attributes of any quality other than bad.
