Endangered Species is a 2002 action-thriller film that stars Eric Roberts, Arnold Vosloo, and John Rhys-Davies. Directed by Kevin S. Tenney, the movie follows a group of scientists who find themselves in the midst of danger when they uncover an ancient curse guarding a valuable discovery. The story is set in the African country of Malawi, where a team of wildlife experts is studying the behavior of the indigenous wildlife. Led by Dr. Helen Parker (played by Catherine Oxenberg), the group includes her husband John (Roberts) and their daughter Wendy (Jessica Steen), along with Eric Kiviat (Vosloo) and his assistant Rebbecca (Patricia Velasquez). The team is working to create a detailed profile of some of the rarest animals on earth, including lions, zebras, and giraffes.

However, things take a turn for the worse when the team is attacked by a group of poachers who want to capture the animals and sell them to the highest bidder. The poachers are led by a ruthless warlord named Kolowski (Rhys-Davies) who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. As the team struggles to fight off the poachers, they begin to realize that there is more to the situation than meets the eye.

The movie is a gripping action-thriller that takes the viewers on a journey through the dangerous world of African wildlife.

The acting in the movie is top-notch, with Eric Roberts delivering a strong performance as the protective father and husband, determined to keep his family safe.

John Rhys-Davies steals the show as the villainous Kolowski, bringing an intimidating presence to the screen and making viewers hate him with every fiber of their being.
