Great Fun!
12 February 2003 | by Space_MafuneSee all my reviews

Wow! I really enjoyed this one even if the formula at work here had gotten a little predictable...this still has fantastic action, great animal chase scenes(who knew a Rhino could be so mean and deadly?) and an entertaining supporting character in Barry Fitzgerald's O'Doul. Great fun!

Favorite scenes: O'Doul outsmarts a crocodile ...
