This is no Wild Animal

Animal is a great drama, Ving Rhames made the story his acting in the movie is pretty much what makes this movie great, although a couple of times the film went off it's pacing it's still a great movie about choosing your life. Violent Gangster James "Animal" Allen is sent to prison for a long time while in prison his attitude slowly starts to change and sees his life very different thanks to the help of Berwell. When James is released from prison he finds that his son Dairus is falling into the same path he was once in, James must help Darius out before it's too late. I found that this film is like a documentary of how you live your life.

4/5

Sazvakana prica o putu preporoda i osvescivanju afro-amerikanaca sa dna lanca ishrane u getoima, kriminalaca, ubica i narko-dilera, ispricana kroz vrlo, vrlo slabu, neuverljivu i naivnu pricu o robijasu koji se reformise u samom zatvoru i pokusava da izvede i svog zabludelog sina na pravi put

cool Ving Rhames prison movie. a ghetto gangster realises the error of his way. unfortunately his friends and neglected son feels differently when he gets out.

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.

Ving Rhames' pet project abot a reformed gangster trying to save his son from the path he led him down. Everyone gives there all here and the cast includes a bunch of good actors, Rhames, Terrence Howard, Jim Brown, Wes Studi and Chazz Palminteri (who wrote and starred in the thematicly simaler "A Bronx Tale").

Dad goes to jail, reforms and comes out to find his son going down the same path and tries to save him. Nothing very original but some decent performances. Rubbish ending though.

I really enjoyed the message of this film, and the acting abilities of Ving Rhames. I just didn't buy the ending. It didn't make since to me... it was like a cop out. I expected something more positive. Terrence Howard could have stepped into his role a little more too. Jim Brown was a pleasant surprise though.

This movie is good, about a ex -con trying to prevent his son from becoming him.
