Idris Elba faces off against a rogue lion on a South African game reserve in Baltasar Kormákur’s latest survival thriller.
Who will emerge victorious in a battle of man vs. lion? You’ll have to tune into Idris Elba’s new survival thriller Beast to find out.
The actor stars as Dr. Nate Samuels, a recently widowed man who takes his daughters Meredith (Iyana Halley) and Norah (Leah Sava Jeffries), who were raised in America, on a trip to South Africa to learn more about their late mother’s home.
They are hosted by Nate’s old friend Martin (Sharlto Copley), who takes them on a private tour of a game reserve. Little do they know that a rogue lion is on the hunt – a group of poachers killed his pride the night before and he is out for revenge.
Yes, the concept of this movie is extremely ridiculous but watching a man vs lion film is rather enjoyable, especially if you suspend your disbelief in certain parts. This is the epitome of mindless blockbuster fun!
Unfortunately, the film isn’t aware of how silly it is and takes itself too seriously....
