A HYPNOTIC SPECTACLE … DOUGLAS AND KILMER SPAR SPLENDIDLY IN THEIR ROLES.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer bring to life the heart-pounding story based on true events in remote East Africa in 1896. When two murderous lions on a man-eating rampage force workers to stop construction on a railway, big-game hunter Charles Remington (Douglas) and engineer Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson (Kilmer) set out to stop the deadly predators. However, the lines between hunter and prey soon become blurred as the men enter a dark and unfamiliar wilderness where the thrill of the hunt quickly becomes the most dangerous game of their lives. Winner of the 1996 Oscar® for Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing, this riveting journey into primordial fear is a film not to be missed.
