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.
Cinematographer Jan de Bont was mauled and scalped by a lion on the set. de Bont required over 120 stitches to sew his scalp back from where a lion had bitten his head. After medical treatment, de Bont actually returned to the production to complete his D.O.P. duties. See more »
While this movie is certainly incredible in terms of its live action sequences with the lions, I would actually like to draw some attention to the soundtrack, which is not only unique, but powerful, exciting and highly eclectic.
The two most notable figures involved in its production are Terence P. Minogue, who composed and conducted the symphonic contributions, and Robert Hawk, who wrote and sang the bulk of the songs.
The symphonic score is grand and melodic, while the songs in the movie contain some brilliant and sincere pop moments. Who are these two people and have they done any other soundtrack work before or since Roar? (I've searched the web in vain!) The impression one gets in watching the movie is that Robert Hawk, at least, was part of the extended Marshall circle of family and/or friends, as Noel professes his liking for Robert's music in one scene in the movie (to Mativo).
