Fagan the lion is amazing!!!
2 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a Generation X-er, I had never even heard of this movie before tonight. I was flipping through channels and saw some guy wrestling with a lion on AMC and had to stop and watch. Before I knew it, I was hooked and had to watch the whole thing. The lion, Fagan, must've either been drugged or he was the tamest lion ever. The main character not only dances and wrestles with this lion but get it to listen to commands like it is a dog. It even plays with string like a cat and sleeps in the same bed with the guy. Amazing. I have never seen anything like it. Granted lions are more docile than tigers but Siegfried and Roy had nothing on whoever trained Fagan. Today's movie makers wouldn't even bother, they would just digitize the lion.

The movie is short, only about 80 minutes. So if you see it on, do yourself a favor and watch it. Fagan is worth it.
