To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, even though it didn’t really get much love when it was released, I have to admit it, I thought it was actually not bad at all. I mean, sure, as it was pointed out by many people, it's a little bit like 'Jaws' but ... read more

Pop Quiz: The Ghost and the Darkness is to lions as *blank* is to sharks. Is the answer: A.) Jaws B.) A Sharks Tale C.) Open Water OR D.) Jaws: The Revenge ?

" Based upon a true story about two lions who started to attack and use humans as prey for their hunger. It has a big potential, but is weighed down by numerous plot holes and characters that do not go anywhere. What works better is the suspenseful scenes when the lions attack humans that are perfect horror movie moments. Also a big plus for using real lions for almost the entire film making it much more believable. "
