A movie as frank as it is absurd

It’s hard to know for sure if Kormákur and Rousselot were playing with the camera more than just a way to keep themselves engaged in such simple material. Nate’s relationship with his daughters, as extensively outlined by Ryan Engle in the script (based on a story by Jaime Primak Sullivan), is largely a functional way to create tension without ever Now feels like a real attempt at creating a multidimensional personality. Of course, Elba is as magnetic and charming as usual, but there’s only so much he can do to make Nate’s struggles with connecting with his daughters seem real. The fact that “Beast” has little investment in the character of Nate and his daughters, as opposed to archetypes, makes the back-and-forth argument a bit tiresome at times.

And let’s be honest: the reason why “Beast” isn’t invested in the character development of Nate or his family is because it’s more concerned with dividing humans from nature in such a way that as violent as possible. It’s easy to suppress your skepticism about the fact that many of the animals in this film are CGI (coming out a month after Universal Pictures releases another film, “No,” which would be unsettling. if any of the lions here are… y) ‘know, really). Whatever happens with the lion refusing to leave Nate or its children alone is us. do learn about the lion’s behavior, courtesy of the good Martin, reveals the kings and queens of this forest don’t usually attack humans, and if they do, they often eat said humans instead of killing them them and leave them to die. At the end of “Beast,” although the script calls for the lion to stay bloody, it does so at the expense of turning the big cat into a jungle version of Michael Myers.

It’s easy – especially in the third action movies – to settle for the internal logic that “Beast” uses. But in essence, “Beast” is not a movie that can be identified. For better or worse, this is a summer hit “Deep Blue Sea” school movie. It’s a movie where animals fight against humans (in this case, just an animal, to be fair), and logic doesn’t need to be included in the equation. “Beast” isn’t a huge shock, but it’s also a rare enough movie during the summer, in that it knows its limits, makes specific promises, and it doesn’t believe the point. In some ways, while the second half of summer 2022 has felt light on new releases, “Beast” feels like it’ll be more at home as something you come across when folding. clothes on a slow Sunday instead of paying to see it in theaters. It’s silly and silly, yes… and that’s, like it or not, the whole point.
