The lion scene


What the hell was that?

So awful. He was trying to mimic the birthday party scene in Signs, but badly.

The guy just standing there. Hilarious

THE WIND IS A BAD MOTHERFUCKER.

I never understood the absolute torrent of hate this movie gets. That scene is fine. The problem is that people just aren't buying the premise, so every single thing on screen becomes a joke. I have no problem going with it and do not find any of the death scenes funny.

The movie is just not great. It is decently done in most every respect, but it just meanders along and trails off at the end. Some fundamental problem with the writing condemns it to mediocrity, but it is not terrible.

WELL SAID...AND SECONDED.👍🏾

Yes, the premise sounds stupid, but I think people are more pissed because they were misled there was something bigger in play and not just the nature. It is by far not a good movie, but also not a bad one.
The lion scene so is really bad imo. Just checked it again on youtube and the lions are quite easy pull the guys arms off. Not sure if a lion could do it anyhow, but for sure the hand would earlier get pulled off as the whole arm.

I could look at it again but I recall a cutaway... Like the Lion actually bit it off and we didn't quite see it.

I suspect that in reality the lion would shake the guy and even if the arm did come off, the guy would not be able to step away as he would be battered about on the ground. But, I wasn't badly put off by it.

The one side is off, and as we see the second coming off, we can assume this also happened with the first.

Yeah... We see it starting to rip alright. I suppose that could just be the bones fracturing through the flesh... Which, I suppose, might make tearing it off a bit easier.
