Rating: 0.5/4 -- It lacks even the usual charm of being so bad it's funny. It's just bad. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A scenery-chewing Michael Douglas is the highlight of this passable landlocked variation of Jaws.

Rating: 1/4 -- The picture is too lightweight, too posturing and too self-important to go in an introspective direction. Full Review

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....
