Amsterdam is about to become a hunting ground in the first trailer for Uncaged, my now most anticipated movie of 2019. Look at that glorious lion! He’s beautiful, majestic, violent, and at least higher quality than the jaguar in Primal.
Though Uncaged could very much use the power of Nicolas Cage (what movie couldn’t?), I’m still smitten with the janky dubbing and ridiculous dialogue like, “I know a guy. He’s killed dozens of lions!” Who just happens to know a professional lion killer? Are there enough escaped lions stalking the cities of the world that a professional tracker and killer needs to exist? I hope so, that way this can spawn a much-needed franchise! It looks fun, bloody, not entirely serious, and I can’t wait to eat this garbage up like a box of Slim Jims.
Watch your back (and your screens) for when this killer lion starts prowling VOD platforms on March 17, 2020.
