Not bad, not good, so so.
20 March 2004 | by (Mansfield, CT USA) – See all my reviews

White Pongo isn't a bad movie. The problem is, it isn't a good one either. The acting is adequate but the story moves very slowly. The slight twists and turns of the movie are not enough to bring some much needed excitement to the production. I thought that the costume for the white ape was actually pretty good but the ape wasn't used to the full extent that it was capable of playing. I would have to say that White Pongo is a not so exciting adventure movie, partly a romantic story and a very small part mystery movie. My review would have to be that it is not good, not bad but a so so movie. If you do watch the movie, don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. If you don't watch it, you didn't miss much.
