What’s It About?
A group of researchers journey deep into the jungles of the Congo to investigate the disappearance of a previous expedition. This film is loosely based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name.
Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This movie is pretty bad all around: script, plot, dialogue, accents, characters, special effects, and the ridiculous talking gorilla. I felt bad for Laura Linney and Ernie Hudson while I was watching this film. They’re both so much better than this disaster. I’ve seen Sphere and Timeline so I know that Hollywood can royally screw up a Michael Crichton adaptation, but it’s sad to see another film added to that unfortunate list.
Final Grade: D-
Thanks for reading!
