Very mild entertainment
2 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Although the three leads are well-cast (Giuliano Gemma as the good-hearted hero who is also good with his fists, Ursula Andress as the supposed "nun" who is actually a spy on a mission, Jack Palance as the pipe-smoking villain), and Gemma's alternately helpful and troublemaking pet chimp is impressively trained, "Africa Express" is just a mildly amusing action comedy, about on the level of a lesser Bud Spencer - Terence Hill movie. And although it's always nice to see an actress like Ursula, who has been used in her career mainly as "just" a sex symbol, taking on a more empowered role, there is just too much padding between the moments where she springs into action (don't expect too much flesh-exposure either, this is basically family stuff). OK for one viewing but that's about it. (**)
