Have you heard of the Cocaine Bear? It’s not a figment of your imagination; this bear existed! Cocaine Bear is an action comedy movie directed by Elizabeth Banks and featuring Ray Liotta’s last role before his passing. The film is based on a true story about a bear who stumbled upon a massive stash of cocaine in rural Georgia.
Rather than take the true story too seriously, the movie takes creative liberties and transforms the bear into a drug-addled killing machine. The film follows a group of characters who cross paths with the bear, including Liotta as a drug lord and Keri Russell as his estranged daughter who runs a wildlife sanctuary.
The movie is both funny and entertaining but also delivers on its suspense and gore elements. To make the bear even more menacing, the filmmakers used CGI to create an uncanny valley quality. The film celebrates its absurdity without mocking or patronising its audience.
Cocaine Bear is a movie that you don’t want to miss. It’s an action-packed comedy with a unique story and characters to entertain you. If you’re looking for a movie with suspense and humour, this is definitely one to check out.
