En ekspidisjon, finanisiert av Lord Carter og ledet av kaptein Fox, har som mål å finne ut om det virkelig eksisterer en slik menneske-ape som de får et glimt av i en privat natur-dokumentar fra Afrika. Vel fremme i Afrika begynner imidlertid ting å skjære seg og mye tyder på at det ikke skal bli så enkelt som de hadde trodd. (Filmen Kazan er en slags billig og halvkomisk Tarzan imitasjon) Written by Ørnås

The voting seems pretty accurate, so I do not feel like mentioning the film per se, just flourish the site with a few scenes from the film. Specially you need mention Karzans head on charge with a croc in water, swimming towards it just to glide on top of his head(of course avoiding the mouth) to fight to death. Also; there's a lot of animal-life clearly taken from other shoots- put into the film to make it more Africa, and also some places to spice up in-itself meaningless scenes, like the one where the jeep get stuck in the sand. The jeep cannot move, so a lion is cut in to make it more exciting - can the jeep escape? The whole scene crashes with the sight of the lion, laying lazily and even yawning.. You could write books about the zooming( and camerawork in general) in this movie. The tag-line occurs when the team is gonna kill a Black Widow(..): "Quick!Aim for a nerve-centre!"

A warm recommendation for a good movie for all those who love bad movies.
