markmonforte - 10 January 2023 Why oh Why??!! Wow! A perfect example of a movie that leaves every character without common sense.
I felt bad for Idris Elba being in this movie. He is so much better than this.
The writing is like a high school play. You are forced to sit through it, doesn't make sense, and the use of blooper footage so they wouldn't have to reshoot.
This truly shows what kids are like today. 1. Don't pay attention to their surroundings and 2. Act as if they know how and what to do only to make things worse.
I made my way watching the entire movie and caught myself rooting for the lion. I wished death for all the characters and the lion fulfilled its destiny.
Ita-Ray - 30 December 2022 Time I will never get back Not sure what prompted me to start watching this (wish I hadn't) but I fell asleep on it once & had to come back the next day to finish watching it.
To me, it came off like it wanted to be an updated version (with a twist) of, 'The Ghost & the darkness' but was not executed quite as nicely.
Everyone made decisions that weren't realistic. Acting was mediocre. The daughters were borderline annoying.
Was not the best film for Idris Elba but I guess it was a paycheck for him.
I recommend watching something else & avoiding this disaster of a movie. If you wanted a good movie about lions killing people for no reason check out, The Ghost and the darkness. Now that, is an excellent movie.
