The Okongoes are in danger
4 May 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I obtained a copy of Fury of the Congo from the same source as the Bomba movies I have.

In this one, Jungle Jim, a native woman and another man who is pretending to be their friend and is actually a hunter go and track down a group of hunters who have kidnapped all the native men. These hunters are after a rare breed of horse, the Okongo and want the native men to help them to kill the Okongoes as they are a source of a kind of drug. During the expedition, Jim and his companions face several dangers including dust storms and, best of all, a giant desert spider. The hunters are captured at the end, some of them killed and the native men are reunited with their wives. The Okongoes are safe and well too.

As always, Johnny Wiessmuller plays Jungle Jim and the rest of the cast includes Lyle Talbot and William Henry.

Fury of the Kongo is worth a look at if you get the chance. Quite hard to get hold of.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
