Creature effects supervisor Tom Woodruff Jr. played the gorilla Isabel, similar to the alien roles he played in the movies Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992) and Alien: Resurrection (1997). To obtain a picture in the heat-sensitive infrared light, crew members warmed up the fur of the gorilla suit with hair dryers. See more »

I'm giving up listening to critics or checking the votes at IMDB; from now on if it looks cool from the trailer I'm going to go see it. The Mummy looked cool from the trailer and was in spite of iffy reports, Scary Movie looked funny from the trailer and was in spite of negative comments, and after skipping Hollow Man in the theatres because I heard it sucked it turns out it is terrific fun. If you like the trailer, go see the movie.
Of course, what the trailer shows is the incredible special effects, and no one can deny that they are terrific. But they are also used to great effect, and the story itself builds nicely and is nicely paced, with a lot of heart-thumping action. It isn't totally credible towards the end, and the final action sequence isn't remotely credible, but it's all terrific fun, and considerably more entertaining than the overrated Invisible Man, which I always thought was one of the least interesting horror films of the 40s.
But don't listen to me. Watch the trailer and if it doesn't make you want to see the movie then skip it. It represents the movie very well.
