  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Ghost and the Darkness

    Based upon a true story about two lions who started to attack and use humans as prey for their hunger. It has a big potential, but is weighed down by numerous plot holes and characters that do not go anywhere. What works better is the suspenseful scenes when the lions attack humans that are perfect horror movie moments. Also a big plus for using real lions for almost the entire film making it much more believable.

    "I'm gonna sort it out" (said in 'Irish') and he does. "Actors who use preposterous accents tend to give better performances" https://lebeauleblog.com/2017/02/22/accents-will-happen/#more-57132

  6. J. O.'s rating of the film The Ghost and the Darkness

    An endless, sprawling continent of gorgeous sights and sounds, beautifully realized costumes and sets, and a hell of a lot of fun... and all of its glory was nearly squandered by an impressively bad Irish accent and a hokey bandit. Looking on the bright side, the thrills and adventure surrounding the man-eaters was great. A lot of fun, still, after all these years. We could use another film like this.

  7. Ian Fitzgerald's rating of the film The Ghost and the Darkness

    for some reason we watched this in world history in 9th grade

  8. Keith Fletcher's rating of the film The Ghost and the Darkness

    While a true story, the Michael Douglas character is fictional. An interesting animal serial killer film in Colonial Africa.

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Ghost and the Darkness

    A film I always see with the same pleasure. A rare example of an adult adventure movie. Highly recommended.
