Movie Info

An up close and personal film that takes you inside the hunting of African lions, a controversial trophy sport enjoyed by a select few of the world's wealthiest. Many hunters consider themselves conservationists, and animal lovers. They justify their right to hunt as central to the preservation of the species, and defend the benefits of their concession fees. King of Beasts follows one so convinced hunter, deep into the Tanzanian bush, on a determined and at times surreal pursuit of the ultimate trophy -- the king of beasts. With never before seen access and footage, this film will make you question man's very nature, as well as our place in the animal kingdom.

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

  • [T]he documentary lacks narrative clarity with little explanation of who's who in his hunting group, as though someone forgot to add identifications in post-production.

  • A work of admirable journalistic seriousness, one that goes about its business with a clear-eyed precision...

  • Almagor and Harel are completely successful in presenting a subject with enough information that we can come to our own conclusions in the end.

  • The film's title is a sardonic double entendre. It refers to the lion, but also to the man who has deemed himself worthy of taking these "lesser" lives.
