“Beast is one of the most gorgeous, satisfying films of the year. The camera moves cut-free during the vast majority of scenes, depicting all the splendor of the African safari, as well as helping viewers to become invested in the character interactions in a much more captivating manner.
The immersive atmosphere carries immense suspense and tension – the lion sequences are quite brutal – where Idris Elba delivers one of the most emotional performances of his career. It follows the usual formula when it comes to survival movies, and it does require some suspension of disbelief. Final remark for the convincing visual effects.
Audiences won’t be disappointed.”
There are a few scenes in this that are vaguely menacing, but for the most part it is really, really poor! Idris Elba (“Nate”) arrives with his daughters “Mer” (Iyana Halley) and “Norah” (Leah Jeffries) at at remote African game reserve run by his friend “Martin” (Sharlto Copley). Pretty soon we realise that the luggage they brought on the plane is but the tip of the iceberg of baggage that actually accompanied this family and we are quickly immersed in a rather unattractive melodrama surrounding his late wife who tragically passed away (hopefully before seeing this film). Anyway, they are out on a guided tour when they discover that all is not well – an huge rogue lion is out to avenge himself on humanity after a group of poachers annihilated his pride. Snacking with impunity, this lion is soon determined to make a meal of these travellers – but can they stay alive long enough for help to arrive? Elba struggles to deliver consistency with his rather un-necessary American accent, the two girls are frankly just annoying and from very early on, I was wholeheartedly on the side of the lion. Curiously (or fortunately for the narrative), this great beast has virtually no sense of smell so “Nate” and his offspring seem to manage to dice with death on an implausibly regular basis. Taking shelter in an old school – leaving all the doors open for added protection; getting in and out of their land cruiser with scant regard for their safety and armed with little more than a pen-knife. The dialogue is OK – that’s because it says it over and over again… “Are you OK?” “Are You OK”? The last few scenes are just plain silly – indeed, they reminded me of my schoolboy enjoyment of “Daktari” (1966) with the friendly “Clarence the cross-eyed lion” married together with one of the those semi-educational Disney films with actuality interspersed into the fiction. It does have the benefit of being short – just the ninety minutes, but what action there is is all too often drowned out in the banal family drama that is just dull. Nobody’s finest work, sorry…
Old School Action Drama
Beast isn’t highbrow cinema at all. The movie knows the kind of film it is and then goes and tries to elevate it by coming up with really solid technical proficiency and great acting. The movie is just 90 minutes long, so it knows that it shouldn’t overstay its welcome. The ending might come off as a bit underwhelming thanks to its abrupt nature. However, the film is great entertainment and everybody should give it a chance when in the mood for a simple and straight-to-the-point kind of movie.
Never written a review before, but a day after watching this I wish I could get my money back! This is an assault on the film it was put on. Everything about this movie is ridiculous and an assault on my brain. What a waste of Idris. Laughable.
