That's a tough sell. I mean what with the plastic surgery and mostly looking like a drug addict these days and all she just doesn't quite fit the part somehow.

She's definitely been lookin' rough off camera for some time now. I must say though, the make department here did commendable work, and Meg's, in character, at least, nothing less than sultry. The movie looks fun, and I'm willing to give her a shot at selling us on being an action heroine.As a Peaky Blinders devote, who's sat through hours worth of a 5'4 Cillian Murphy flattening an endless array of men six times his size several times over(not always with the aid of a gun either), it's only fair to give the ladies an equal shot at the grand title

True, true. While the movie is pretty mediocre it seems to be better than I expected, though, I'm only halfway through. I expected this to be one of those cheap eastern european productions. You know, the kind Van Damme, Seagal and even Jim Carrey have been putting out. You can always tell those movies because they seem to always have that distinct cheap gray hue to them. This one however looks like it actually cost some money to make and has a nice locale (Africa) that you don't see often enough in movies. Anyways, Hollywood can be a cruel place. Fox went from being the next big female thing to doing stuff like this awfully fast and seems like her acting career is mostly done.

Well, to keep beating a dead horse i.e. to keep talking about this movie I have to say that it gets a lot worse on the second half. The first half is mostly about a military rescue mission in africa, but in the second half it turns into an absurd survival movie where a female lion is stalking and killing the members of Megan Fox's team one by one like a serial killer. It also has a lot of really stupid scenes like one where Megan Fox outruns a lion and a few minutes later they show the lion reacting to an explosion and that rascal hightails lightning fast like he was standing in for the Flash in a new DC movie. Also they deduce that their 9mm ammunition is no good against a lion (I mean it's not optimal but come on) so they opt for the next big thing and tape some knives into sticks. Makes perfect sense like their next decision. They have a seasoned lion hunter in their group so how do they hunt the lion: by splitting into small individual groups and you can guess how well that turns out with a serial killer on the loose.

Now random shower scene with Megan Fox, eh? That's disappointing

Afraid not. This is one of those girl power filled only with strong independent women movies resulting in some corny out of place dialogue to put it mildly. Anywho while this movie started out relatively promising it gets rather bad and tedious on the second half. I'd give it a 4/10 simply because it was so utterly boring towards the end. I can't help but to wonder how does financing for movies like this work? I mean who puts up money for something like this?

I think a concerned someone in Hollywood thought Megan just needed a break from motherhood. Let's throw her in some random movie.

This movie sort of reminded me of a really bad, poor-man's version of Predator. I guess Megan Fox is supposed to be Arnold Schwarzenegger HahA! At its core, both movies start off as rescue missions and end up with something stalking the team. I know Megan doesn't get the best press these days, but I still like her and thought she was looking fairly hot in this. If she's looking pretty rough these days, then there must have been one helluva make up artist on the set...or a camera with a lens that filters out ugly.

Hollywood CAN be merciless, but let's cry too many tears for Foxy Megs just yet. Word has it that she didn't exactly endear herself to those whom she shared space with. Jump to the six minute, forty-second mark, and listen to about the ten minute, thirty-nine second mark. One can't afford to be a diva, without also having the talent to back it up

I rate this movie 0 There is a huge, very big, unbearable racism against black people, the dialogue was utter racism = time 1:01:55 to 1:06:00

I'm sure Megan Fox could pull off anything!

Yeah well, she did it to herself. Her head ballooned up like the Hindenburg with the Transformers flick and she began diva'ing it up on set after set until they condemned her to B movie prison. Good riddance I say.

wow
