  • The best part of The Wild was the father and son situations

      To look at The Wild from a technical standpoint, the animation here was just fine. But from a story standpoint, it was hard for me to differentiate between The Wild, Lion King and Madagascar. All deal with the same issues roughly, especially The Wild and Lion King. Both deal with father and son issues. Madagascar could easily be mistaken for The Wild,

      sharing its zoo animals on the loose in the wild theme.

      That isn’t to say The Wild didn’t have its moments. I would, in fact, rate The Wild above Madagascar in story elements and acting. But, aside from some quirky characters and tender moments, The Wild felt too tame.

      The best part of The Wild was the father and son situations. The father, in ...

      • an effort to impress his son, pretends to be someone he wasn’t, namely the king of beasts. When the chance comes to see his father act tough, Ryan’s father lets him down. So Ryan runs away, leading his father and their friends on a wild chase into the wild, where Ryan’s father must prove himself a worthy hero not just to his
        friends and his son, but to himself.

        A good, strong storyline, but coming too close on the heels of Madagascar, I feel hurt The Wild’s chances of being something much greater, to the caliber of the similarly themed Lion King. Still, if you have a son, this movie might be worth catching at least once, to show the dangers of trying to be someone you’re not.
