One strange "sequel"
4 March 2008 | by gridoon2018See all my reviews

I mean, think about it: Giuliano Gemma plays the SAME character he does in "Africa Express". He runs a different business now, but he still has the same (very smart) pet chimp, and the same priest friend with the same pet parrot who talks only when he decides to. Ursula Andress and Jack Palance return as well, but they're playing DIFFERENT characters. This really doesn't make a whole lot of sense - how can Gemma's character not even acknowledge the striking physical similarities between these two people and the ones he had met in his previous adventure? At least they could have made them twin siblings or something. Other than that, "Safari Express" is about on the same quality level as its predecessor: recommended mainly to undiscriminating viewers - for example, to those who rate EVERY Bud Spencer - Terence Hill movie a perfect "10". Ursula, at age 40, was still one of the hottest women around; it's the long, tedious stretches in which she does not appear that kill this movie. (**)
