Audience Reviews for Animal
Somewhat interesting but weakly written Independent gangster/prison drama by unknowns David C. Johnson and Thomas Care, and directed by David J. Burke. Good performance by Ving Rhames [even though the he was a little over the top at times], Terrence Howard ["Hustle & Flow", "Fighting"], and NFL-Legend Jim Brown ["Any Given Sunday"] as a black revolutionary who just got off death row. Decent performances by Chazz Palminteri ["A Bronx Tale"], Taraji P. Henson ["The Curious Case of Benjamin Button","The Karate Kid"] Wes Studi, and Faizon Love. Overall - with better writing and a better director it would have been a good film and a lot more compelling, there's a good message [of redemption, learning to live a more peaceful life, and breaking the cycle of violence that plagues the black community] behind it though.
A hidden gem. What the movie lacks in blockbuster action and special effects, it makes up for in character development, an enriching story and something modern movies lack: Pure heart.
This Crime drama keeps you riveted and drawn. An inside look at a man raised on the streets, the effect it has on him and his son, and the struggle they both face when he is released from prison a changed man. Rhames plays a murderer and addict who has no regard for human life and plays it well. Howard is good as the son who has taken his fathers place in the criminal chain, and is conflicted upon his fathers release from prison when he learns his father is no longer willing to be the animal he once was.
