Director Nick Powell’s action film stars Nicolas Cage, Famke Janssen, and Kevin Durand. Cage plays a hunter of exotic animals, eager to trade in his prized white jaguar for a hefty payday once his ship reaches the shore. His life and livelihood are placed in jeopardy when a dangerous political assassin (who is being extradited) breaks free from his confines and sets the big cat loose.~Augustine Chay
A high tension, surprise a minute, and no lack of high paced action in this ultimate Action: Thriller film. This is an intelligently written thriller and it is superbly acted and directed. It’s ending is well-crafted and it’s a solid high speed entertainment package.
d give Nicolas Cage five stars for this one. Best job on a believable character in a long time. Other actors did a pretty good job too.
Story was well paced action with a couple of original aspects (wild animals loose on a ship made a little more sense than snakes on a plane) but was a bit of a stretch logic-wise (like why would the bad guy release the animals when the odds were already against him). With the odds stacked against him, the bad guy still managed to take out all of the trained agents. Finally, the white jaguar was really poor CGI. Should have hired someone off the Lion King.
Bottom line - I enjoyed it even with a few little flaws
I have to say first off....I'm a Nicolas Cage fan and have been since Face off, this movie may not be a big buget movie but its great fun to watch on a off night. I think the acting is very accomplished and the plot is fresh, its not a rehashed plot.
Nicholas Cage does an excellent performance of a "provide for myself" type hunter-for-profit that meets the real world in the middle of the ocean with a homicidal killer locked up in a cage on the same ship. The action begins when the killer manages to escape from his cage and releases all the captured animals.
Tigers and Wild Beasts drew me in! Safari theme and Nick Cage wont disappoint! Added few twists and turns with a surprising plot. Favorite thing is Best Buy movies in the mail* This is one to keep on the edge of the shelf :)
