      69% Tomatometer 213 Reviews 77% Audience Score 1,000+ Verified Ratings Idris Elba (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, The Suicide Squad) stars in a pulse-pounding new thriller about a father and his two teenage daughters who find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator. Elba plays Dr. Nate Daniels, a recently widowed husband who returns to South Africa, where he first met his wife, on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve managed by Martin Battles (Sharlto Copley, Russian Doll series, Maleficent), an old family friend and wildlife biologist. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins stalking them.

      Critics Consensus

      Want to watch Idris Elba fight a lion? The admirably lean yet ultimately disposable Beast is just the movie you're looking for.

      Audience Says

      Whatever Beast lacks in surprises -- or characters making smart decisions in a terrible situation -- it more than makes up for with plenty of edge-of-your-seat action.

      Linda Marric The Jewish Chronicle There are some great performances here, notably from Copley, but Beast often feels too contrived and preposterously overblown. Rated: 3/5 Aug 30, 2022 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) Audiences will turn up because a trailer promised to show them one of our most charismatic A-listers in a boxing match with a roided-out kitty cat... In that sense, it’s impossible to argue that Beast doesn’t live up to its promise. Rated: 3/5 Aug 29, 2022 Full Review Kimber Myers Crooked Marquee 'Beast' delivers on its simple premise, offering an effective survival thriller; nothing more, nothing less. Rated: B Aug 29, 2022 Full Review Sarah Vincent Cambridge Day The cast is better than the film deserves and has terrific chemistry – deft at making themselves than likable enough to hope they survive, stupid enough to punch a CGI lion (yeah, not smart). Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 9, 2024 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine The narrative structure of this type of stories is always the same, only the animal in question changes. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/10 Apr 9, 2024 Full Review Dave Giannini InSession Film Not every movie is going to change your life. Some of them just have movie stars fighting a creature they could not possibly fight in real life. But, in many of these cases, the movie is just fun.

      Brandon Richardson It boasts great visual effects and production design. But ultimately, the only interest audiences will find is that Idris Elba fights a lion. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/22/23 Full Review Tishah B Action packed! Love Idris Elba. Will Packard did a great job but that danggone Lion whew! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/19/22 Full Review Meg I wish the concession stand was open I was only 20 minutes late into the movie you the previews take take long. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/16/22 Full Review Tim Winslow.. Well is the kind of movie my wife likes, "BIG ANIMAL" eating people. Me, I was screaming and jumping in my seat like a little girl, and she was "LAUGHING" at me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/08/22 Full Review William decent story line. I'd have to say the old movie The ghost in the darkness is much better Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/07/22 Full Review vanessa The previews of this movie do not get it justice. Oh my god did I jump around all it was such a drama. The storyline is great the actors was off the chain you must go. The suspense would get you from the beginning to the end. Just don't go by yourself Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/05/22 Full Review Read all reviews
