Plot Samson the lion (Sutherland) is head honcho at his home at the New York City zoo, but when his son is accidentally shipped off to Africa, he and
his friends (a giraffe, an anaconda, a koala and
a squirrel) set off in pursuit. However, Samson
has a secret: he’s never been to the wild before.
Verdict The Wild roars back from a rocky opening act to a storming last reel, just managing to claw its way above comparisons with Madagascar.
