* NonMaliciousMonster: Subverted, more or less. The lions seems to hunt and kill more for fun than for hunger.One of 'em even leave [[spoiler: Remington']] corpse where Patterson can see him apparently just to provoke him.

Part because live-acted lions didn't seem much of a threat after theatres had already been attacked by expensive CGI [[Film/JurassicPark dinosaurs]] and [[Film/IndependenceDay alien invaders]], part because the main character (played by the ''goddam Film/{{Batman|Forever}}'') was heavily toned down to [[ExecutiveMeddling make room for the]] [[WagTheDirector originally tertiary character]] played by producer Michael Douglas, the film got mixed reviews and a disappointing performance in the box-office. It also won an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing which is [[ConsolationAward pretty much like winning nothing]]. The movie still remains an entertaining adventure movie with that classical feel in it, however.

* ArcSymbol: The beauty of Africa and the dangers lurking underneath is represented by the tall brown Savannah grass. Patterson burns it to flush out the remaining lion. In the ending, he still worrily looks at the grass, afraid something else might jump out of it.
