Taken over by animal instincts

The Animal’ is about a small, wimpy guy named Marvin, who always wanted to be a cop but did not have what is required to fulfill his lifelong dream.  A deranged scientist
secretly uses animal organs to restructure his body organs, after Marvin is critically injured in a car accident.

Marvin feels energised and powerful; his weakness is replaced by strength and he achieves instant fame as a super cop. For Marvin, life is going great with his new found hero status — but soon, he discovers that his animal instincts have started taking over his body at all the wrong times.

Marvin tries his level best to behave civilised; he struggles to be the perfect gentleman with his new love, Rianna. In his attempts a series of hilarious situations follow that would drive any animal crazy.
