From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
After Jungle Jim rescues Anne Lawrence from deadly rapids, he learns that she is looking for one-time football hero Bob Miller who disappeared 9 years before when his military flight disappeared over the jungle. There are problems in the area and tribes are being attacked and enslaved by the Skeleton Men. They learn that a white man with a gun is leading the Skeleton Men and Anne fears that it might be Miller. The tribesmen are being put into forced labor in a mine and Jim sets out to rescue them. Along the way they will meet strange creatures and eventually be taken prisoner themselves. Jim finds a way out. Written by
In the trailer for "Jungle Manhunt," there is a shot of Jim fighting a man-sized dinosaur - a two-legged, tyrannosaurus-type creature (obviously a man in a suit) - but this doesn't occur in the film itself, probably something that was filmed but then deemed too ridiculous to include in the film.

In an early scene when Miss Lawrence first meets Jungle Jim after he saves her from drowning, she's admiring his features, and asks him to 'turn your head to the right', to which he turns his head left! See more »
More of the same for Jungle Jim fans here as Johnny Weissmuller's jungle hero gets involved in helping Anne Lawrence (Sheila Ryan) in the search for a missing football star. The backdrop is one of dastardly doings by some nefarious character, who is instigating raids on villages led by the Skeleton Men. Cue Jim involved in a good quota of close call dramatics.
There's the usual cheap moments; bad rear projection, giant prop boulders that move when someone touches them, but these are the kind of things we tend to afford affection for these days. From drowning perils to big lizard, to fisticuffs and sexual tensions, Jungle Manhunt, without reaching the higher end of the franchise, never falters in its prime objective to entertain without pretension. 6/10
