Editorial Reviews

Two young couples set out to explore the jungles of New Guinea in search of Michael Rockefeller, heir to the Rockefeller fortune, who went missing there over 40 years ago. But their hunt for a big payday turns them into the hunted, as the native cannibals track their every move and incomprehensible bloodshed awaits at the gory end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bring You to Your Sha-na-na-na-na-na Knees November 16, 2007
Format:DVD
Based on the jacket of this DVD, I set my expectations for "a bloody gore fest." Trust me, Welcome to the Jungle qualifies more as a bore fest than a gore fest.

I didn't say it was a bore fest exactly. But the Welcome to the Jungle cast doesn't even run into their first native tribe member until about an hour into the film, and the film is only about an hour and 20 minutes long.

Back in 1961 Michael Clark Rockefeller (heir to the Rockefeller fortune) disappeared after a boating accident during an expedition in the Asmat region of New Guinea. It was speculated that Rockefeller drowned, but sensationalized by the theory that he was abducted, living among or perhaps even eaten by cannibals.

Welcome to the Jungle is about two young couples that get the bright idea to take their inexperience and hike into the Asmat jungles to see if they can find any proof of Rockefeller's true fate. Going back to the jacket of the DVD, it tells you that trouble starts when the couples run into "a fierce tribe of cannibals deep in the jungle." This gives you the impression that our couples are indiscriminately attacked while on their innocent trek. But everyone knows that today's Asmat Tribesman would only attack if provoked, right?...Like, say, because some knuckle-head desecrated an Asmat gravesite.

Some of the cast do indeed get brutalized. But a gore fest? No. Friday the 13th has *a lot* more slicing and dicing than you ever see in Welcome to the Jungle. In fact, you never actually see any of the real brutality while it's occurring in Welcome to the Jungle; you do see some of the carnage...but certainly not in the large doses that all of the hype seems to suggest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the worst... April 5, 2008
By PR GUY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD cover contains a quote: "Quite possibly the most terrifying film of the last decade." Say what? Here's my quote: "Quite possibly the worst film of the last century." What a total waste of time...and money. I bought the DVD for a penny...but had to pay $2.99 for shipping. It was still a rip-off...one of the worst (worthless) films ever. And how can producer Gale Ann Hurd allow them to put her name on the cover with her credits for such classic films as "The Terminator" and "Aliens"? Sounds to me like Gale is desperate...but I'm not. I'll never buy another film produced by her...ever. What an embarrassment to the film industry. Shame on you...and "shame on YOU (the viewer)" if you buy/watch this abomination.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing February 19, 2008
Format:DVD
As you've no doubt read from previous reviews, the DVD packaging and description of Welcome to the Jungle would make you think that this is a 21st century Cannibal Holocaust. Well, as you've no doubt figured out by now, it ain't. Welcome to the Jungle is instead an ill-fated semi-character study that follows a group of people (Sandy Gardiner, Callard Harris, Nick Richey, and Veronica Sywak) as they head into the New Guinea jungles in search of the heir to the Rockefeller fortune, who has been missing since 1961. We get to know this crew, for quite a while, before there is any action with cannibal tribesmen. All the build-up would be acceptable with we actually came to like the characters here and there were ample amounts of blood and gore (which are usually synonymous with cannibal flicks), but alas, the characters are annoying (and the acting is pretty bad to boot), and there is barely any blood to be found. Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh (the writer/director of 2004's The Punisher), Welcome to the Jungle is dreadfully underwhelming to say the least. While Hensleigh's filming technique offers a bit in the realm of suspense, it doesn't last long. Not to mention that at a brisk 80 plus minute running time, the film just feels poorly conceived. All in all, Welcome to the Jungle is an example of not judging a book by its cover. The film isn't scary, and old fans of the cannibal genre will be extremely disappointed with the end result here. That aside, the film may be worth a look at the very least for horror fans, but there isn't enough here to really recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Jungle, We'd Love to have you for Dinner. February 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Well it definitely ain't Cannibal Holocaust, that's for sure,
but it's does have a few of it's own moments.
None nearly as graphic or remotely as brutal, mind you.

Four morons set out into the jungle in search of the lost Rockerfeller,
in hopes of rescuing him, and claiming the million dollar reward.
What they find instead is hostile, blood-thirsty, cannibals who paint themselves white, and well.....they eat morons.

The dialogue is juvenile, but it keeps the story moving.
Struggles within the surrounding communities, as well as highway robberies, prevent the viewer from losing interest before entering the jungle.
Once inside the green labyrinth away from civilization confrontations flare, and the stupidity flows in abundance.

Obvious connections will be drawn between this and "The Blair Witch Project" due to the identical style and pace.
But this flick had one thing going for it that it's predecessor didn't.
A visible, tangible enemy.
If "Blair Witch" ended with cannibals, you'd essentially have this flick.

Sadly though, none of the violence takes place onscreen,
all you're ever witness to is the bloody aftermath,
(chick hung from a pole through her head, various organs and limbs scattered about, and a writhing, limbless wonder)

My one major gripe is that they don't even bother to show the cannibals eating people.
Which is insane, considering this is a cannibal movie!!
But like I said it does have it's few redeeming moments.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Easy Money comes with Hard Consequences
