Ape-alling!

Words can't describe how hilarious this film turned out. I did a little bit of research and found out that it cost $50 million to make this film. What a hoot! I hope that cheque was written exclusively to Tim Curry for his fee, as he was the only saving grace of this farcical.

Me and my friends spent most of the time debating where we'd seen all of the black actors before. Each one ... read more

An average movie

Honestly, beforehand, I wasn't expecting much from this flick. Indeed, since I heard only bad things about this movie, I was expecting something really bad. Eventually, even though it was indeed pretty average, it was definitely not the worst movie I have ever seen. Indeed. if you don't take this movie too seriously, it is actually not completely awfull and barely enjoyable. Basically, it is an aw... read more

Description: They've eluded heat-seeking missiles, gone eyeball-to-eyeball with enraged 5,000-pound hippos, hacked through a jungle curtain. Still, the expedition continues. Amy, a gorilla who was part of a university learning experiment, is at last returning home. A professor (Dylan Walsh), electronics expert (Laura Linney, The Truman Show) guide ... (more)

"Ernie Hudson was enjoyable. But Bruce Campbell was so wasted, as he could have been the lead character instead of Dylan Walsh. He really would have made the movie much more tolerable. Tim Curry's Romanian accent is so fake, but laughable (No! No!). I wish they didn't have make Amy the talking gorilla that annoying. Despite the special effects being done by Stan Winston and Industrial Light & Magic, the gorillas still look fake. If the film waited until after Peter Jackson's King Kong (2005) or "

Nostalgia Critic's closing thoughts (45 movies items)

"So that’s Congo. It sucks. Do you need more? The special effects are just so silly, the poor, poor storyline is laughable. The only good things in it are Bruce Campbell, Ernie Hudson and that ape-zapper thing here."

" "Congo" is a splendid example of a genre no longer much in fashion, the jungle adventure story. Perhaps aware that its material was already dated when Stewart Granger made "King Solomon's Mines" in 1950, the filmmakers have cheerfully turned it into an action comedy, and the actors have gone a step further, treating it like one of those movies like "Beat the Devil" that is a put-on of itself. The result is not a movie that is very good, exactly, but it's entertaining and funny. Ebert's ratin"
