Next time, choose a scarier looking animal.
20 November 2001 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

The basic plot of IN THE SHADOW OF KILIMANJARO (1986) is that an army of crazed, homicidal babboons are killing folks left and right in the middle of nowhere. The thing the filmmakers should of realised is that babboons always look kind of bored. An example comes in one scene where a movie character has a flat tire in the desert. We cut to shots of yawning, pre-occupied looking monkeys watch him from afar. They seem to be saying "Hoo-Hummm, I dunno, should I kill him? I don't know, rather sit here and pick flies off my fur. (Yawn....) Okay. Let me go down and kill 'em." We had a good laugh with this one.
