Flick In A Limerick

A grieving family that takes a journey to heal
Is attacked by a lion hunting his next meal
Escaping this beast
Who just wants to feast
Is a situation that is not so ideal

The Big Finish

If Idris Elba gets into a fight with a lion… pray for the lion. Beast really proves Elba’s chops because his emotional performance really takes this movie up another notch from being just another basic hunt film. Stylistically there is in incredible use of one take that really makes you feel like you are apart of the action. Even though this is what could be considered a family film it still provides just enough danger and uncertainty that will appeal to an older demographic. When in any jungle the absolute law is to do whatever it takes to protect your own.
