Congo- Great Adventure Film,
This review is from: Congo (DVD)
Congo is a great film. It is just as action packed as Jurassic Park. Some people complain that the gorillas should have been CGI. But at that time it wasn't possible to do that. This combined with a 50-60 million dollar budget. But don't let that get your hopes down.
The gorillas are very well designed and executed and plus the story is scary at some points. After all, apes can think, and they could set traps and easily kill the humans that invade their jungle.
While the movie was not as great as the book, it still has a great deal of entertainment value to it. The movie has some great actors: Dylan Walsh, Laura Linney, Ernie Hudson, and Tim Curry.
It is a shame that some people don't appreciate this film. Now if this movie would have gotten a bigger budget and was made in 2000's era, then it would be even better. Of course, we could always hope that it gets redone in some way and follows the book more closely.
Anyways, buy this movie. It's worth the price and you'll get your entertainment value out of it as well. Buy now and enjoy.
