POTTERSVILLE (Video Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Pottersville—serves up a mediocre, shallow, trite, and poorly written story with a single redeeming factorthe performance of Michael Shannon. Shannon's acting effort rigorously pulls the rest of this film's cast through the movie, not as strongly as Angelina Jolie pulled her supporting cast through her movie, Maleficent, or Jim Carrey's tendency to become the only actor in his Ace Ventura films. But the 'pull' becomes obvious. It’s hard to believe that this story made it to the ‘release to audience viewing’ stage.

Storyline

Maynard Greiger (Michael Shannon) accidentally sets off a national Sasquatch hunt in his hometown of Pottersville.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Seth Henrikson for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Patricia Hearst, Daniel Meyer, Christian Chadd Taylor, and Byron Wetzel  for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Parker (Judy Greer), Sheriff Jack (Ron Perlman), Connie Greiger (Christina Hendricks), Brock Masterson (Thomas Lennon), Bart (Ian McShane), Norm (Michael Torpey), Tony (Debargo Sanyal), Ilene (Greta Lee), Stacy Gutierrez (Elena Hurst), and Tammy Henderson (Blake Perlman).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s not a quality watch even for those audiences who love Sasquatch films. The 1987 movie, Harry and the Hendersons, serves at a higher entertainment level within this storyline's genre. This movie serves the Teen/Adult audience.
