Quotes

[first lines]
Paul: [lecturing] Most people think of hyenas as cowardly scavengers - waiting around impotently for left overs, while the stronger faster animals eat their fill. They're wrong. There's a lot more to them than that. Look at them.
[indicating video footage]
Paul: Hyenas are fierce hunters. They're all muscle and teeth. Their top speed in about 35 miles an hour.

I was hoping for something like In The Blood but instead got more of a hide and seek type movie. Felt a little flat.
8 July 2014 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"They looked like they needed help. He said they is a little off the desert." Paul (Dorff) and his girlfriend Tally are taking a trip to Africa. His daughter Josie (Williams) is having trouble with the new relationship and reluctantly is dragged along. Instantly Josie and Tally clash until Josie asks to be sent home. On the way to the airport something happens to Paul and it is up to Tally to protect Josie and find a way to get her home safe. This is a movie that is hard to review. The movie isn't bad and moved at a pretty good pace but on the other hand it is really a overdone concept. The thing that does set this apart from others though is that the woman is the one who has to protect someone. While this may seem like an action movie it is much more drama then I was expecting. I was hoping for something like In The Blood but instead got more of a hide and seek type movie. Not that that isn't a bad thing but it needed something else to keep it from feeling as flat as it did. Overall, nothing amazing but nothing awful either. Really just a movie to put in when you have nothing else to do. I give it a C+.
