Storyline

The Green Goddess is a totem worshiped by the primitive natives of a lost city deep in the jungles of Guatemala, which contains both a fortune in jewels and an ancient formula for a super-explosive which could threaten the world in the wrong hands. From Africa, Major Martling launches an expedition to find the Goddess and place its secret in safe hands. So does Ula Vale, whose fiance died attempting a similar expe- dition, despite the warnings of her lawyer Hiram Powers, who secretly wants the Goddess' contents for himself and has dispatched Raglan, a mercenary, to get it for him. Aboard ship to Guatemala, they meet Lord Greystoke - aka Tarzan - on his way to the same locale to find his old friend d'Arnot, whose plane reportedly crashed near the lost city. On reaching Guatemala, Tarzan, the Martling party and Ula learn of Raglan's devilish mission and that he has a good head start on them... Written by Rich Wannen <RichWannen@worldnet.att.net>

If you like jungle shots, a movie for you; otherwise, skip it
14 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

How do you say slow in chimpanzee? Now consider this: this is the condensed (70 minutes) version of a 12 episode serial, a total of 257 minutes. If you remove the long jungle pans and the many shots of the jungle fauna, this movie is maybe 40 minutes long. The plot is pretty thin and confusing until the end. One tends to lose sight of the fact that Tarzan is on this journey to find a lost friend. There is also another person, a Ula Vale, who's motives are never made clear. If you are going to watch this movie on tape, I would suggest you keep your finger on the fast forward button and use it liberally. If you do like jungle shots, you will love this movie.
