Robert Mitchum and Jack Hawkins tangle over Elsa Martinelli on a jungle hunt
9 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Rampage" (1963) is attractive and rewarding adventure entertainment in the Hollywood vein of those times. The budget was significant and spent well on sets, location scenes, major stars, beautiful technicolor and music. It's now out in a widescreen edition that looks lovely. Highlights include a tiger hunt and capture, a contest between a leopard and a trapper armed only with a torch inside a cavern, and a leopard loose in a city environment. The movie opens with nice scenes set in a modern zoo. There's some footage of rhinos using a mixture of camera techniques. One of the best sequences and writing involves a confrontation between the trapping-hunting party and the native chief who doesn't want animals killed. Mitchum is a trapper, not a hunter, and has to negotiate and gain the chief's trust. The battle between the leopard and the trapper inside a cavern is exciting and well-done.

Jack Hawkins is a standout in this one, playing an aging hunter who is trying to hold on to Elsa Martinelli and trying to maintain his nerve and pride in himself hunting. Ms. Martinelli conveys well her loyalty to him but also her need to break the ties. Robert Mitchum is not a hunter but a trapper. He and Hawkins cooperate but their friction grows. Mitchum's character is very different from that of Hawkins. He's far more sensitive and understanding to both animals and human beings. He's relaxed and Hawkins is wound up more tightly. He doesn't have to prove anything but Hawkins does. Mitchum handles a part like this with ease and without overdoing it. Everyone comes off looking good as far as the acting goes, and that includes Sabu as their guide and Stefan Schnabel as the chief.

"Rampage" holds its own with other Hollywood jungle adventure films that came earlier in the classic era. They all were far more modest affairs than the later adventure movies like "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
