Jungle Jim gets caught up in the Atomic Age
11 July 2006 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Savage Mutiny is the Jungle Jim movie that sees him get involved with the Atomic Age. As this series of movies was made in this era, it certainly wasn't surprising to see one about nuclear testing.

Jungle Jim is assigned to relocate some natives on an island off the coast of Africa so the Americans can stage a nuclear test there. Problem is, some of them refuse to leave and there are also enemy agents interfering. After overcoming these problems, the test goes ahead.

As usual, Johnny Weissmuller plays Jungle Jim and is joined by Angela Stevens and Lester Matthews (who has several Jungle Jim movies to his credit).

Though not the best of the series, Savage Mutiny is a good way to spend around 70 minutes one afternoon or evening. Not bad at all.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
