Before filming, Noel Marshall's son John Marshall was the first victim; he was attacked by a lion who clamped its jaw on John's head. It took 25 minutes the lion to let go of John's head, and the result was 56 stitches. See more »
After Hank goes to the airport to get his family, on his return trip, he picks up Mativo and the tigers. Mativo's bike is placed in the trunk with the front wheel hanging out. Further down the road, the trunk is closed with no bike hanging out. Still further, the bike is again hanging out. See more »
I first saw this movie as a child and it has always stayed in my memory as an enjoyable experience. I just watched it recently as an adult and found it every bit as enjoyable as before. It's directed by Noel Marshall who spent a decade making this film. What really works the best is the fantastic music score. Unlike some films today, "Roar" doesn't drag on for hours and has no shallow character's or bad CGI. This is the way films should be made. Real lions and tigers involved in this amusing story of a family arriving at the wrong time to be greeted by the local wildlife. I don't understand the other reviewer and their negative comments. Watch this for yourself. It's not spineless garbage but a passionate and thoughtful film. Thank you for reading.
