Lions and Tigers and...more Lions and Tigers...
9 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is one action-packed nerve-jangling movie from start to finish.

Completely contrived of course, but that's not a bad thing in this case and I feel it does have great historic value.

With regard to being contrived, I mean, really, first you have amazing scenes of wild cats fighting in a cage, wild cats that are never found together in nature, then, lo and behold, our friends end up on an uncharted island where, unlike everywhere else in the world, those same wild cats just happen to live (and of course, fight) together naturally. Or, I don't know, maybe their cages fell from a plane on the way to the circus? But seriously, there are few movies that cause your hair to stand on end for real. I have been around lions and with some, their roar travels an amazing distance. Two people I know mistook a lion's roar for what they seriously thought was a big metal bridge being hit by strong winds! I think certain sections of this movie/serial WOULD have perhaps fit the science fiction genre if they had used weird-looking hybrid species of wild cats on the uncharted island. That would have made it more intense and even more unusual, as well..."Tiglons and ligers and bears, oh my." 8/10.
