I am amazed by the interaction between this crazy family and the hundreds of wild animals.

Its an ideal family movie one which everyone will love to see especially you're a big cats fan of lions-tigers-jaguars-leopards etc.

If you're a die hard fan of panthera XXX (fill in the blank as you wish, you'd be correct), this movie is for you.

"Roar" is a film I got a lot of enjoyment out of as a child and watching it as an adult was as entertaining as ever. What catches my attention this time round is the danger that the cast were putting themselves in working with these animals. Any film that attempts this type of drama should certainly be remembered a bit more than "Roar" has.
Since details on this dvd are so difficult to find on the web, I'd like to tell you what "Roar" has. First of all, the widescreen is good in that it shows the film as it should be viewed but it's not 16:9 for widescreen tv's. However the picture is quite strong anyway for zoom.
The short interviews are decent enough but one must wonder that there's got to be a great documentary somewhere on this 11 years of film making. Probably more engaging than the film itself.
The sound is not 5.1 but stereo surround as it was originally. Now I could be wrong here but I'm sure this film is cut. Within the first 15 minutes I'm sure there was a scene with Tippi Hedren and her kids discussing how they gave the husband/father the wrong arrival time and another bit with the two sons having an argument which lead to a fight. One of the sons trys karate on his brother. These two scenes are missing from my dvd. On top of that I'm sure at 84 minutes this dvd goes for is way too short from what I remember of seeing this film on video. Without that first scene the film doesn't make sense. We don't know my Noel Marshall thinks his family arrives later that night.
If I'm totally delusional here please correct me. It's not a major disapointment. I've had worse and I'll get over it quick enough. "Roar" is a definitely worth a look.

This movie breaks all the barriers when it comes to interaction between the BIG CATS and humans. The scenes in this movie are simply breath-taking yet at the same time very heartening to watch especially when the big cats show their love and affection for the actors in the movie.
Its an ideal family movie one which everyone will love to see especially you're a big cats fan of lions-tigers-jaguars-leopards etc.
I saw this movie when I was a child in 1989 and last year when I found it was available on DVD, without hesitation I bought it...for more visit [...]

I saw this movie in the theatres when it was release here in England. I heard it was never released in America, which is a shame. I've never seen animals interacting with people in such close proximity and SO MANY at one time! I bought the movie on DVD from the roar website earlier this year and have watched it at least once a month. My 3 kids watch it with their friends even more than me and my wife.
I saw the "interviews" , but would love to see even more. Hopefully, they will do a whole DVD on just how they made this film. I heard nobody died, but I read that over 70 people were injured, some very seriously, during the filming. I read that Jan De Bont, now a big Hollywood director, got hurt the worst. This film makes Seigfreid and Roy's group of animals look small by comparison. You won't believe what these people survived! Truly AMAZING!

RoarIt turns out that birds aren't the only critters to have given actress Tippi Hedren a rough time on screen! In "Roar" (1981), a film that Tippi and her then-husband Noel Marshall--along with sons John and Jerry and daughter Melanie Griffith--star in (Tippi and Noel also wrote, produced and directed), all manner of wild animals turn up to give the actress some fairly tense moments. In this virtually plot less film, a mother and her three kids go to Africa to visit their scientist husband/father after an absence of three years. Dad's not at home when they arrive, but around 30 large cats--lions, tigers, jaguars, etc.--are, and proceed to chase the family all around the abode. These animals are never shown in a bad light, however; this is very much a pro-conservation film that espouses all wildlife causes. That is all well and good, but the film's primary appeal, it must be said, is the Marshalls' fearless interaction with the big cats. Seeing Noel dive into a group of fighting lions and come out bloodied but happily beaming is really quite remarkable. Tippi reveals herself to be quite an extraordinary stuntwoman, too. Just watch her get tossed about by an elephant, fall off a tipping ladder into a pond, climb down a waterwheel, and roll around with the lions! We are told at the picture's beginning that no animals were harmed during its (11-year!) filming; I for one could use a further reassurance about the movie's humans! Siegfried & Roy eat your hearts out; no lion tamer act will ever seem impressive after one sees what Noel and family do during the course of this film! "How did they ever make this thing?Read more ›

I first saw this movie at a young age and loved it! I have grown up with this movie and have never grown tired of it. I am amazed by the interaction between this crazy family and the hundreds of wild animals. Not only is this one of my favorite movies of ALL TIME, but my friends all love it too. There have been numerous times where we vote to stay home and watch Roar for the 30 millionth time rather than go out and see whatever new movie has come out that particular week. P.S. My favorite part is where John hides from the lions in the water barrel!
