User Review

An entertaining, but not very memorable, thriller

Rating: 7/10


The only reason I was interested in watching The Canyon was the
presence of actress Yvonne Strahovski, who is brilliant as Agent Walker
in Chuck, one of my favorite TV programmes.However, The Canyon ended up
being an entertaining thriller with decent performances and a generally
good rhythm, although it is not very memorable.

The screenplay from The Canyon does not offer too many surprises, but
it produces an adequate level of suspense and tension thanks to its
good structure.One of the fails I found on this movie is that I think a
few scenes could have easily been deleted from the movie, not because
they are boring, but because they add nothing to the story and they
break the rhythm a little bit.And then, the characters make some stupid
decisions and they occasionally do not behave naturally.

However, in spite of its fails, The Canyon deserves a recommendation as
a competent thriller, which may not be highly memorable, but at least
is entertaining.
