Critic Reviews for Endangered Species

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (4)

Despite the horrific circumstances, Endangered Species remains inexplicably stuck in the perky comic register of a US sitcom.

Its story of the classic ugly Americans learning important lessons about the eponymous endangered wildlife of East Africa is undoubtedly well-meaning. Unfortunately, it's also graceless and predictable.

May 31, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Slick and scenic but increasingly silly, by the end it has become perhaps the most preachily wrong-headed wildlife conservation adventure since the notorious "Roar" 40 years ago.

"Endangered Species" has noble intentions, but needed a better script and a likeable character or two.

May 27, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"Endangered Species" fails to provide a reason to remain invested in clumsy screenwriting and performances, diluting the shock value Bassett is hoping to deliver.

August 2, 2021 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Endangered Species is an example of what not do when going on a safari and what not do when making a movie thriller about it. The film's intended preachy message about poaching is overshadowed by the idiotic story.
