For generations, all that distinguished Eagle Pass, TX, from Piedras Negras, MX, was the Rio Grande. But when darkness descends upon these harmonious border towns, a cowboy and lawman face a new reality that threatens their way of life.
This movie was conceived over a decade before it was made when Tippi Hedren worked in Africa on films during the 1960s / 1970s such as Satan's Harvest (1970). She once said of its conception in Africa: "Exploring a game reserve, we came across a pride of lions that was living in an abandoned game warden's house. We thought it was wonderful, and my husband [Noel Marshall] wrote a script around the idea." Hedren says on The ROAR official site: "We were delighted with the way they adapted themselves to living there. And they were so funny we knew we had an idea for a picture." The site goes on to say that the idea for this movie "grew from a father and mother's passion for cats." See more »
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.
