Hundreds of Beavers - Review

J'accuse!

4.5 / 5

The Guardians of the Galaxy team line up

Directed by Mike Cheslik.

In the 19th century, a drunken applejack salesman must go from zero to hero and become North America’s greatest fur trapper by defeating hundreds of beavers.


The creativity of Hundreds Of Beavers exceeds tribute and creates a wonderfully silly and inventive slapstick comedy for the 21st century. 


Fuelled by overwhelmingly strong word of mouth, it’s hard not to be in awe of the amount of work and effort packed into such a tight and well-paced package. There's not a joke or opportunity wasted with a visual style that is the closest to a live-action Looney Tunes-esque cartoon that has ever been put to screen.


Mike Cheslik and Ryland Brickson Cole Tews are absolute madmen for dreaming up this Wisconsin fever dream but geniuses for being able to create a coherent and confident final product. I lost track of the amount of times I burst out loud laughing.


A unique and creative experience that throws so many ideas at the screen that balancing them all feels like witnessing the impossible.
