The New Swiss Family Robinson
16 October 2003 | by (Arcadia) – See all my reviews

Although it is no Disney classic, Roar is a tale of adventure well worth watching. I am a huge fan of films that take me to the far reaches of the world, and, in that regard, this is a movie that delivers. The lions are incredible and the filmmakers exhibit a thorough understanding of who the real stars of the show are. The lions take center stage and shine. The performances by the cast are competent, but I am an animal lover and for me, that is the true draw of the film.
