Banned in 40 countries? Yeah, because it stinks.
17 November 2001 | by h3llb3ntSee all my reviews

Savana Violenta, a.k.a. Mondo Violence, from start to finish is a huge disappointment. The box boasts that the film is banned in over forty countries, yet there is very little here to be offended by. Eighty percent of the movie is spent watching stock footage of animals chasing and eating each other, all of which can be seen on television. There are a few scenes of hunting and traditional animal sacrifices, but most feel very staged and out of place. If you're looking for something a little bit more extreme you might want to check out the Faces of Death series and give this film a wide berth at the video store.
