The synopsis for this one leaves little to the imagination with “A father and his two teenage daughters find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the Savanna has but one apex predator.”
Even though Beast has a simple story with the accompanying clichés from survival thrillers and has nice, but not always the most believable visual effects, they still manage to provide an entertaining and exciting survival thriller.
Idris Elba manages to carry the film well as the main character, who tries to improve the bond with his estranged daughters after a tragic experience.
Beautifully shot in the real African savannah, the film shows beautiful images of these landscapes and of the different animal species that live here.
The film also responds somewhat to the current problems of the African natural landscapes and the different animal species that live here.
So, they try to draw some attention to this.
Beast is a decent watch for the amazing scenery, but the plot is very basic and very predictable.
They do a couple of the jump scare scenes really well.
My Rating: 6/10
