Movie Info

It's survival of the fittest, the fastest and the fiercest in this striking IMAX wildlife adventure about a young rogue nomadic lion who invades the domain of an elder established king of the jungle and challenges him for pride supremacy at a strategic watering hole in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. The documentary, a National Geographic production, was shot over two years by director Tim Liversedge, who also provided the stunning cinematography. Narrated by James Garrett.

Circle of life lesson for A simple story, eloquently told, with lovely and humongous pictures.

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.

It's a fascinating 40 minutes, packed with gorgeous close-ups of giraffes, zebras and even buzzards, images that should delight children and reassure those adults who fear that the world has been tamed. Not just yet.

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.
