No action, no violence, no nothing
24 June 2001 | by Nutri-GrainSee all my reviews

This movie had a lot of potential. A fairly popular cast, good acting, and a whole lot of baboons. But this movie failed to deliver what most action/horror film fans want: action and horror. The baboons are never shown killing anyone, just the scared look of the person, the baboon, and then it cuts to a different scene. In fact, the only reason that this movie is rated R is because of the bloody bodies people find. That's it, not even bad language. There is way too much pointless dialogue, which takes up probably 3/4 of the movie. The actual killer baboons are shown at a total time of 1/10 of the movie. So if you're looking for an awesome adventure in Africa where the heroes are blasting away killer animals, DON'T WATCH THIS MOVIE. It is extremely boring and a waste of time. Overall rating: 2/10.
