About the Movie

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), guide (Ernie Hudson), explorer (Tim Curry) and others follow the scampering ape. They know she will lead them to the place that's more than her home - it's the site of the fabled Lost City of Zinj and its diamond mines. But what they don't know can be fatal. Once they enter Zinj, they'll be the endangered species! From the best seller by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park) comes an even-packed adventure filled with state-of-the-art technology and primal fear.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This glib, overheated film about vicious primates delivers little suspense... – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Marshall can't decide whether he's making a thriller or a laff-it-up lark. – USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Feels as if the picture were edited to leave the action sequences in while removing any connecting material that might have helped them make sense. – Brian Lowry, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Rotten: The entire tone of the book has been transformed from tension to tongue-in-cheek with dismal results. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 28, 2006

B Movie Fun

When this movie came out in theaters it was torn apart by critics and movie audiences alike, but that should not stop you from enjoying it. This movie is a mix of "horror" and "action" in a wonderful B-Movie package. Yes, it can be a bit mindless but if you take it in good fun it is a nice B-movie gem; especially with a wonderful over the top performance by Tim Curry, a sarcastic performance by Ernie Hudson that pokes fun at the stereotypical "African guide" role, and a brief cameo by Bruce Campbell (and a dummy that is supposed to look like him).

this is a good movie, but it is a GREAT book. Sincerely, you should read the book first and do you will not regret it.

Absofruitly Fantabulous

This is a great movie, and and even BETTER book. I absolutely reccomend reading the book, by Michael Chrichton. See this movie!
