  • For audiences who only know lions through animated imitations or the bars of a zoo, this film commands respect for these magnificent creatures in the wild, whether plotting, nurturing, roaring, resting or leaping and snatching an antelope high in the air.

  • [Director Tim Liversedge] truly knows his stuff when it comes to shooting wildlife -- he gets so close to some of the lions that we expect their breath to fog up the lens. Now he just needs to work on finding a story worthy of his pictures.

    February 2, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Thrilling and beautiful to watch.

    November 19, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Roar: Lions of the Kalahari has a plot worthy of a Shakespearean tragedy and the epic sweep of a David Lean film, but these lions are regally real.
