The second jeep attack in “Beast” is even more intense. Nate grabs a tranquilizer gun and jumps onto the roof, while Meredith leaves the car to find Martin inexplicably. The lion lunged at Nate, knocking him out of the jeep. He manages to roll under it, but loses his gun in the process. Another dramatic one-shot gives us a close-up of Nate, the lion lunging at him and the tranquilizer gun just out of his reach. But in the end, Norah was the savior of the day, taking a dart and stabbing it at the lion from above.
It was again a tense and well-choreographed scene. The camera scoured every bush for signs of a lion, only to have it get shot in the back of Nate. The visuals look convincing and keep spinning as Nate fends off attacks and tries to grab the gun, while the lion dashes away just to take a more aggressive approach, how wonderful. Idris Elba’s camera work and acting make this moment feel exhausting and claustrophobic. It is very interesting to watch.
