More action adventure than traditional documentary, Lion Ark follows the world's most ambitious and daring animal rescue, with a narrative compiled from film, interviews, conversations and reactions as events unfolded.

Critic Reviews for Lion Ark

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Overlong film quickly becomes tedious whenever the camera strays from the lions, who don't have much personality but prove more compelling than the humans.

This warmhearted documentary from Tim Phillips makes "Born Free" look like a beast story for babes.

The lions are majestic yet adorable; too bad the humans are such a sorry sight.

Finding balance between the rescue of abused circus lions and the fascinating cause and effect of a ban that led to the rescue of said lions proves too much for the creators of Lion Ark.

Equally thrilling, enraging and uplifting. It'll make you want to stand up and cheer. If you're not moved by it, you must be made of stone.

Quite frankly, those who care about Lion Ark's mission may as well skip the movie (especially the tedious last section) and contribute to the cause.
