Storyline

After Jungle Jim rescues Anne Lawrence from deadly rapids, he learns that she is looking for one-time football hero Bob Miller who disappeared 9 years before when his military flight disappeared over the jungle. There are problems in the area and tribes are being attacked and enslaved by the Skeleton Men. They learn that a white man with a gun is leading the Skeleton Men and Anne fears that it might be Miller. The tribesmen are being put into forced labor in a mine and Jim sets out to rescue them. Along the way they will meet strange creatures and eventually be taken prisoner themselves. Jim finds a way out. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the trailer for "Jungle Manhunt," there is a shot of Jim fighting a man-sized dinosaur - a two-legged, tyrannosaurus-type creature (obviously a man in a suit) - but this doesn't occur in the film itself, probably something that was filmed but then deemed too ridiculous to include in the film.

Goofs

While Jim is rescuing Miss Lawrence from drowning, Tamba the chimp is jumping around on shore. As Tamba is jumping around, Jim's hat is right next to him in long shots and nowhere near him in close-up shots. See more »

Worth Noting
6 October 2012 | by jcsymmesSee all my reviews

the most interesting thing about the movie is the performances. There mostly pretty bad. Johnny Wessimieser may have had one really goodgreat movie but here hes barely wood-perhaps because he actually has to talk in the movie he acts as if he is afraid of it . Everyone Else to Bob mMller as a football player is also bad-the natives the villain everyone is pretty much terrible.

That said Shelia Ryan, is pretty great in the movie-either that or she is just head or heals better then anyone else in the movie that it just looks great. Shes spunky, generally funny and has a good late 40s sense of power and accomplishment even if she just mostly gets dragged around in the film.

its not in any means a good movie, yet i can't hate it.
