BOTW is a movie based on the legend of the Beast of Gévaudan a mysterious series of killings and mauling that took place in the district of Gévaudan in France around the time of the French Revolution. Because the few witnessed who survived were severely injured and traumatised, there are no accurate descriptions of what actually did take place, with confused descriptions of a ferocious beast armed with large teeth, which gives plenty of scope for a movie. Altogether the movie works well and gives the right atmosphere. The revelation at the end is as reasonable an explanation as any of the mystery and sufficiently interesting to make the movie climax a satisfying experience.
Set in the 1760s, the armies of Europe at that time were not skilled in any form of unarmed combat so there is a certain amount of artistic licence for the fight scenes and most of the skills demonstrated could only be obtained by time travelling mercenaries who had visited at least as far as the late 20th century, certainly Napoleon’s troops would have been unable to fight like that. Altogether a very entertaining film but not for pedantic historians.

This movie was entertaining and suspenseful. The fight screens were beautifully scripted and were acrobatly done.
Even the subtitles did not distract from the plot and the storyline. The cinematography fitted perfectly with the dramatic outline. The main characters showed both depth and good acting skills. I am looking forward to another movie by this team of experts and actors. Worth watching.

BOTW was a cracking film - in my opinion. The cinematography was (almost) beautiful, with strong characters and superb fight scenes.

The creature itself wasn't too bad looking, but I thought the way it died was a real anti-climax and should have been much, much stronger.

Killing one of the best characters was a no-no too!

I don't usually take to foreign films, and when I found out that this was French I was a little put-off, but stick it in your dvd player and put on (the dire) English) dubbing and you'll see why its better with subtitles!!

All in all - a cracking action/fantasy/horror film that should keep you entertained.
