The Ghost and the Darkness is the ultimate battle of who the king of the jungle is, man or lion. Who will outsmart the other it the name of the game, with humans using traps, fire, and guns, while the lions will counter with teeth, speed, and fear. Humans are advancing into wild by building a bridge to make way for a train, but the man in charge John Patterson (Val Kilmer) is running out of guys because the lions are hungry. Wise bounty hunter Charles Remington (Michael Douglas) shows up to put his mad skills to use to stop a pandemic no one has ever seen or heard of before. Amazingly the action is pretty intense as every trap fails and the lions just keep coming back for more. There’s a lot of pressure from the builders, the owners, and local people who want to solve the problem and move on with theirs lives. I have never heard of this movie and you probably haven’t either, but if you search it up online, you may be surprised this really happened and is based on a true story.
