As the giant lion roaming and lurking victims for a tasty meal . As three protagonists leading the city-wide hunt and confronting themselves one of nature's most fearsome predators which savagely attacking its preys , innocen humans .
Creepy and eerie film with chills , thrills , scary attacks and lots of blood and gore. Furthermore , adding some brief touches of black comedy .The enormous lion delivers the goods with hair-raising chills, full of scares when the huge creature shows up and suddenly attacks .The lion images are made by a mix of digital special effects , C.G. and was also built animatronic for the close-up frames, creating a well-made manually operated lion. While the scenes appearing running and attacking in full were made by computer generator such as the pursuit set piece through Amsterdam when the monstrous lion chases the delivery boy on the scooter by the river .
It contains colorful and brilliant cinematography . As well as atmospheric musical score by Dick Maas himself , as he regularly scores his own films , because not hiring an external composer allows him to save money for additional days of shooting . This grisly motion picture was professionally directed by Dick Maas . However , being his lowest grossing film as if 2016, though in China it got a big boxoffice . As Maas made a name for himself in far flung China as he sold his rights to a Chinese distributor , making in an over night hit in mainland China. Maas is considered to be one of the best Dutch filmmakers . His movies have high production values for Netherlands standards , usually including spectacular pursuits , blow up , known stars and uneven other Dutch directors his pictures are aimed at the international market. His first great success was the claustrophobic and tense The Lift , following Amsterdammned , Do not disturb , Quiz , Down , Saint , among others . And other successes in Flodder comedies as The Flodder in America , Flodder 3 and Flodder TV series . Rating 6/10 , acceptable passable and entertaining .
