Nobody woke me up at any point between now and last year and told me Megan Fox was gonna bring guns to a lion fight… Idunno… either that or I forgot.
She appears opposite Olivia Wilde and Alan Ritchson in Shadow Girl, and did a pretty fine job in Well Go USA’s Battle Of Jangsari, and now she’s gone full blown tactical in M.J. Bassett’s new survival thriller, Rogue, which arrives to digial and on-demand August 28.
Megan Fox (Transformers franchise) tackles a thrilling new role as a battle-hardened mercenary in this explosive action saga. As team leader O’Hara, she leads a lively squad of soldiers on a daring mission: rescue hostages from their captors in remote Africa. But as the mission goes awry and the team is stranded, O’Hara’s squad must face a bloody, brutal encounter with a gang of rebels — and the horde of ravenous, enraged lions they encounter.
If one can overlook the somewhat dicey CG on the lions, this might pass muster. Fox in an action role may be an otherwise worthwhile film to watch and as hard as it is to make those kinds of gains, she must have put in some real work. That’s just facts!
Also starring are Philip Winchester, Jessica Sutton, Calli Taylor, Brandon Auret, Adam Deacon, and Sisanda Henna.
