Maybe you didnt think Tigers were scary...,
This review is from: Burning Bright (DVD)
I know it sounds silly, that a film about a tiger trapped in a house with two kids, might be enjoyable. Sure, the tiger isnt a supernatural killer, or a crazy Anthony Hopkins in a tiger suit, and no the plot isnt going to get noticed at the Oscars.
With that being said, I LOVE a movie that reminds us that nature is deadly. If you enjoyed the film "Black Water" based on the true life events of three people trapped in the mangroves as a territorial crocodile devours them, then you will probably enjoy this film.
If you are a fan of Alfred Hitchcocks, "The Birds" where, something as mundane as seagulls come to take your life, then you will probably like this film.
AND! If you ever saw "The Ghost and the Darkness" which I highly recommend (based on a true story) about serial killing, man eating lions that collect the bodies of their victims inside a cave... then you will like man killing tigers.
What I love about the effects, is that they used real tigers. No CGI, no puppet tigers, and of course the three tigers used to make this were not hurt in the production. (The DVD has a nice feature on how they made the film)
This is not for die hard gore fans, or people who need to get inside the mind of a serial killing/raping mad man. But this film IS for someone who wants a suspenseful plot, that they can actually go to bed and sleep afterwards without feeling dirty or in need of therapy.
In conclusion, I loved this movie! Maybe more so because the film makers didnt try to introduce me to a new breed of killing machines. It simply reminds us, if you forgot, that there are plenty of overlooked beasts on this planet that can rip your face off.
As a side note the musician Meatloaf makes a small appearence. :)
