The Missing Link! Excellent make by Rick baker!
5 September 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Missing link is very different film but an interesting and intelligent film. The scenery was fantastic! I thought the Man-Ape was cool and actually funny at times. the film has good music and a good narration by Michael Gambon. There are some real life killing in the wild like a lion going after a baby zebra and other animals and the part with the chameleon eating the insects was really cool & the scenes with the mating frogs or toads was unusual with the amphibians doing back flips like stunt men! This movie a like very different documentary! If you like a movie that focuses on one character and the animals around him check this movie out if you can because its is very hard to find! Recommended!
