"This is the best movie that I have ever seen. What could be better than a guy in a protective suit getting hit by a truck at 30 mph? I dunno. And then a log. I wish he were here now so I could beat him with a bat."
Always keep your knives at half-sheath

"A must see for lovers of the wilderness. Clear proof that truth is in fact stranger than fiction. High points are, without question, Troy's description of his encounter with "the old man" and long-shots of Troy doing karate in the Canadian rockies in his long-johns."
Very good - not great

"Definitely best when you see it for the first time, because you just don't know what happens next. It's a slow bit paced, so sometimes it makes your mind wander. My big complaint is that they left out LOTS of great footage from the final. I have a tape of the extra footage, and it would definitely have made this film much better (extra scenes include Troy getting shot with a .45 revolver, wrestling with bears in the junk yard, Troy on the Roseanne show/Canada AM/interview, him getting hit by a pickaxe, etc...). I live near Troy and have gone up north to gold pan too, so technically it's pretty realistic. The soundtrack is good and editing job also, but some scenes drag on with people talking about things you really don't care about, that don't have much to do with anything. This is still probably the most entertaining and uninformative documentary ever."
The Greatest Film I've Ever Seen!

"If Motorhead moved in next door, your lawn would die. However, if Motorhead became farmers, they would grow copies of "Project Grizzly." This is cinema at its most powerful and gripping. This movie depicts a man who is somewhere between brilliant and ridiculous, visionary and villain, demi-god and dunce. You will not be sure whether to ask for his autograph or help in the effort to have him driven from your town. You will certainly be inspired to buy a Bowie Knife."
