Trivia

During filming in 1977, Melanie Griffith was mauled by a lion and required plastic surgery. Griffith reportedly received fifty stitches to her face. It was feared she would lose an eye, but she recovered and was not disfigured. On another occasion, a lion grabbed her hair and wouldn't let go. That moment made it into the film. See more »

An interesting look at a man trying to preserve his family and a dream!
9 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Roar is an interesting look at how a man must fight to keep his ideals and his family. As a man must decide how to face a world taken over by animals, he must face his worst fears. That of deciding between cats and his family. While his family fights for their lives.
