A new favorite!
24 October 2011 | by (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie with an open mind and heart, and I'm glad I did!

Ever since I have been a small child I have had a deep love for animals. Big cats and elephants? NO exception! This was a very endearing movie who is not short of its heartstrings moments as well. You will be hard pressed to see such a wide variety of big cats all in one movie! The cast was great and the cats truly do steal the limelight -- and your heart. It is with hope that this movie had reached out and touched many others and hopefully inspired them to take better care of the wildlife around us. If you've enjoyed Born Free and the like, I am sure you will love Roar, perhaps even more so.
