Rating: 2/5 -- It sounds like it might be a good movie, but it ain't.

Rating: 3/5 -- atmospheric but uneven thriller
Shadows on the Wall
Nov 8, 2004
Rating: 2/4 -- The camerawork is frenetic and confusing, and the big confrontations are as likely to provoke unintentional laughter as edge-of-the-seat excitement. Full Review
Jan 1, 2000
Rating: 2/4 -- Ranges in quality from adolescent boys' adventure stories to Heart of Darkness.
Globe and Mail
Apr 12, 2002
Rating: 1/4 -- The picture is too lightweight, too posturing and too self-important to go in an introspective direction. Full Review
San Francisco Chronicle
Jun 18, 2002
Rating: 3/4 -- Effectively wipes out the lion's cuddly image from The Lion King and reinstates its rep as the fearsome king of the jungle. Full Review

...A hypnotic spectacle....Douglas and Kilmer spar splendidly in their roles...
Rolling Stone
Oct 31, 1996

Product Description:

Based on a true story, THE GHOST AND THE DARKNESS takes place in Africa during the late 1890s and concerns two ferocious lions who killed 130 railroad construction workers in only two months. A pair of courageous men, no-nonsense engineer John Patterson (Val Kilmer) and rugged hunter Charles Remington (Michael Douglas), set out to shoot the creatures, known as the Ghost and the Darkness. Making their task even harder is the two animals un-lionlike behavior--they kill in tandem, attack in the daylight, and show no fear of anything. Soon the hunters become the hunted....
