Worth your time and money

by dhoopengardner@comcast.net on 3/1/2002

If you haven't seen this movie, I'm not surprised. I stumbled on it quite by accident, and was very happy I did. Everything about the movie is fantastic. The cinemetography is gorgeous. Kilmer and Douglas are excellent actors, and their characters are perfectly balanced against each other. Suspense, action, storyline, this movie does a great job with all three. It's based on a true story which puts you even that much more into the movie's plot development. Do yourself a favor, buy this movie. You will not be disappointed. Read More

Editors Note
Note 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....
