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.
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!
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 [...]
