Burning Bright (2010) **1/2
D: Carlos Brooks
C: Briana Evigan, Garret Dillahunt, Mary Rachel Dudley, Meat Loaf, Charlie Tahan, Peggy Sheffield
P: A brother and sister's evil stepfather traps them inside of their home by boarding everything up as a hurricane rages outside. He then unleashes a man eating tiger upon them that hasn't had any dinner for weeks.
Short, simple, straight forward movie opens up with preposterous introductory sequences, but once the action shifts to chase sequences involving the protagonist and the tiger, Burning Bright really gains momentum.
Burning Bright features one suspenseful, hair raising, or nerve wracking sequence after another. Burning Bright gets the blood racing. It's an edge of your seat experience that keeps viewers in anticipation of how the characters are going to out maneuver this tiger who's looking for his next meal by upping the ante throughout as the characters are faced with ever increasingly dangerous situations. Burning Bright also happens to be highlighted by a strong performance by leading lady Briana Evigan and co-star Charlie Tahan.
Burning Bright might not have the best premise out there, but the people behind it know how to milk each of the film's various scenarios to their maximum potential in regards to developing suspenseful situations and in the process create a successfully exciting film. [PG-13] 86 mins.
