A total bomb from start to finish
21 March 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film begins in a very weird jungle. It is probably the loudest one in the history of film, as many, many different animals constantly scream in the background--sounding like a group of people are running around the zoo throwing rocks at the animals simultaneously!! You also may notice that the animals you see in stock footage are from the US, Africa AND Asia. Additionally, most of the clips are clearly from a silent movie series (PERILS OF THE JUNGLE) as these segments run way too fast (silent films run at 16-22 frames per second and sound at 24--so silent films always look a bit too fast when played on modern projectors). What a totally bizarre jungle and it's amazing that the film makers took so little care in these scenes.

As for our "hero", Ray Corrigan, he narrates most of the film in a very flat tone. Additionally, when he recounts to his friends his exploits, he mostly just stands around as all the others in his party are killed or abducted. Some hero! Overall, there really isn't a film--just lots of old clips, a little irrelevant new material and some guy running about in a white gorilla suit! Frankly, it's boring and pointless--and not even entertaining--even for bad film buffs. A total bomb from start to finish.
