I applaud their effort to strive to create high-quality film that people can enjoy and watch multiple of times. Like any new companies, they will have to go through growing pains to try to create amazing films. Having watch their other films, their main weaknesses is the plot especially the third act resolution.
The characters is usually interesting so that you can invest right away in the beginning. The plot is standard and when the resolution comes, it all just crumple away.
Same goes for this film which I won't spoil. The movie is set in a gorgeous Montana which will make you want to take a vacation there.
The three kids were forced to lived with their grandparents who they never met before due to something bad that happen in the past between the grandparents and their dad. Their dad have cancer and need time alone to get chemotherapy. For some reasons, the grandparents is strict and hostile especially the grandpa , partially due to their strain relationship with their son, whom they think fail to meet their expectation.
The kids went out exploring in the wood and come face to face with the "big foot. It start off as drama then it change to horror then to comedy then to drama then to comedy. I guess you could say it a dark comedy-ish but one that is appropriate for the whole family. The script doesn't do the grandparents a favor, forcing them to behave in extreme manner that seems unlikely in real life.

The ending resolution The other thing I don't like, another huge weakness of ASL Films is the gag reel at the end that you normally see at the end of Jackie Chan films. ASL Films has done it in all films I think and it totally out of characters.
I get that they are trying to honor their actors but it need to go. It a decent film and a must-watch if you love ASL.
However, it doesn't hold much re-watchable value. I do hope that asl films will make huge stride in improvement in the next ten years or so.
