An interesting look at a man trying to preserve his family and a dream!
9 October 2003 | by (Hollywood, California) – 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.
