THE GHOST AND THE DARKNESS (Theatrical Release USA 1996)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Ghost and the Darkness
seems to work in a spiritual realm more than a realm of reality. Two lions target a bridge building project in Africa and seem to kill certain persons selectively. Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas team to solve the problem in order to keep the bridge construction on schedule. Despite the lack of really well-defined characters, the film is fresh and worth watching.
