A strangely enjoyable and completely insane jungle adventure
I just don't get the full-on negativity that this film seems to attract. Sure it's shoddy and completely ridiculous. But it has a certain dumb charm and is a hell of a lot more entertaining than you would think given its terrible rating. I mean honestly a jungle adventure featuring robot gorillas and a white savage-girl can't be all bad. The story is basically about a muscle-bound knuckle-head who is sent into the wilderness to save his friends daughter from a mad scientist and his robot apes. He comes into contact with a savage girl who leads him to the baddies.
This is certainly a cheap and trashy film. But there is enough action, laughs and general bewilderment to keep a bad movie aficionado happy. The title is meaningless there is no Kong and they are not on an island. But I am guessing that 'Robot Ape Jungle' didn't cut the mustard. The African setting was convincing enough until the scene early in the film when the characters visit a bar and everyone starts dancing to some ultra cheesy 60's Euro-Pop. Incidentally, you will be doing extraordinarily well if you do not laugh at this point at our knuckle-headed hero's dance moves. You may also get some amusement when our heroes travel to the jungle down what can only be described as Stock Footage Road. Or what about later when our hero and an incidental character - who serves absolutely no purpose by the way - are captured by natives and then immediately set free to run away because, and I quote Mr Knucklehead, 'they're savages, they expect us to run for our lives!' Saves them the bother of actually trying to escape I guess. I have to also note that the score to this film is a very enjoyable combination of distorted guitars, Euro-cheese, African drums and easy listening organs.
Basically I am happy to say that this film is not nearly as bad as it probably seems. I found it good fun and really can't see why it is ranked so atrociously lowly. It's quite an enjoyable slice of nonsense if you want to know the truth.
