Jim of the jungle
14 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Johnny Weissmuller moved from Tarzan to Jungle Jim movies which itself is based on a comic strip. Weissmuller was getting a bit long in the tooth and a bit pot-bellied to swing on some vine-ropes.

Jungle Man Eaters is less to do with man eating lions and more to do with diamond smuggling. Although Weissmuller gets in with a few scuffles with some wild animals or stuffed animals just to remind the audience that this is a Tarzan wannabee complete with plenty of stock footage from Africa and other safari films.

The stock footage looks like padding, the plot is silly as the leader of the gang somehow manufactures diamonds with some mumbo jumbo science and the fight scene with the lion looks stupid as Weissmuller is unscathed despite getting pushed around by the lion.

I heard about the Jungle Jim films for years but only recently saw them and they certainly lack the charm of the Tarzan films.
