Editorial Reviews

In 1961, Michael Rockefeller -- son of one of the most powerful men in the world - was lost during an expedition just off the shore of New Guinea. At first presumed drowned or eaten by cannibals, reports of a lone white man living among the natives have led to the speculation that Rockefeller survived. Hearing of one such recent "sighting" -- and intent on recording a million-dollar interview -- two adventurous young couples set off into the remote jungle to find this man. What they meet instead is sheer and absolute horror. Captured in grisly, self-shot video footage, their nightmare journey into the heart of evil will shock and forever haunt you.

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...

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.

SPOILER ALERT.
Man oh man what a bad film. I hope these people who were in the movie don't call themselves actors after this farce. Four `college' age youths who meet up in Fiji decide to track down a vice President's son Michael Rockefeller who disappeared in 1961 off the coast where the Asmat tribe reside in the Papua province of Indonesia. These kids think that by finding proof that he is still alive will bring them at least a million bucks so they decide to leave the comforts of Fiji and head off to Papua New Guinea. Well the movie up to this point had really sucked so I thought maybe now that they are headed into the danger that it may (for the love of all things holy) get better-it didn't. First of all, they all load up with back packs not much larger than what I used to take to school on a daily basis. Second, with the available information given or lack thereof they do not have much hiking experience. Third, they are quoted as saying that the Papua province is the second most dangerous place in the world only behind Iraq yet they feel with their limited hiking experience, a single firearm and no guide that they might be `ok'. Now I know if horror films all made sense then there would be very few of them but I can state this in the case of this film because it is not horror, not suspenseful but just extremely boring. The four cant stop bitching at one another till one couple decide to leave on their only raft and leave the other couple stranded in order to get more of the money-plus they are tired of the other couples crap. They start to see natives along the shoreline and think that this might be a good time to get off the raft (bad idea for any of us) even though they have not been shown any signs of aggression.

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.
