King Kong's little white brotha from anotha motha
15 November 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

In this extremely boring and even more extremely low-budgeted mid-40's adventure flick, a bunch of very uninteresting people searches for an albino gorilla that is believed to be the missing evolutionary link between men and apes. Really, this line is repeated several times throughout the entire film. "Do you really believe this animal could be the missing link between man ape?" "Yes, I really believe this animal is the missing link between man and ape!" Okay, we got it! So there's a man in a white gorilla suit wandering around the Central African jungle eating bananas and occasionally kidnapping an attractive girl, while the expedition crew just talks a lot. No real surprises here, because they're all old guys! There's one younger couple joining the expedition, and inevitably they fall in love, but the rest of them are retired scientists and over-aged macho hunters. "White Pongo" is a lame film and, even though its running time is only a good 70 minutes, still half of the film is pure padding and shows how the travel from one tree to another. The guys in their monkey suits were seemingly having a good time jumping up and down, but everyone else literally has to struggle him/herself through this dire movie.
