This is a powerful documentary about the rise of a Coalition of six lions, branded The Mapogo Lions, and their takeover of the largest territory by a pride. This was filmed over the past 16 years by professionals and amateurs privileged to witness their survival skills. Down the years, rangers and biologists have been astounded by the pride's relentless hunger for domination as they showed no fear in massacring other lions - and their cubs - in order to expand their territory. In just one year, these six killed more than a hundred lions, and conquered an unprecedented amount of land. Their story is one of violence, deception, and thirst for power, one which reveals a surprisingly sophisticated side to the politics of lion behavior.Written by
One of the most fascinating documentary i've ever seen. Great scenery, great story, smart commentaries and lots of love of those great animals. This film is a must see for or lion lovers and fans of wild nature.
Great work and masterpiece of long work (this film took 16 years to be made).
So hope that creators of the film will make something more about wildlife in Africa. All in all is 10 out of 10. Recommended for everyone except children. This film shows lots of cruel things. But the reality is so. Now we now what male lions are really are and why they are called kings.
