I love it because it's good, and yet so bad it's good.

You'd be hard-pressed to come up with a movie that ticks more of the boxes for a perfect storm of So Bad It's Perfect.

It's fairly ridiculous (the apes are clearly people in suits), but it's light and brisk and fun, with a nice open-air feel.

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.

A second-rate jungle adventure that delivers far less than it promises.

Not the worst adventure flick that I've ever seen, but far from a great one either.

No comparison to the book, but not bad for a chuckle. Harmless fun with primate puppets.

A completely unintentional laugh riot and, in that sense, top-drawer Crichton.

Watch the opening for Bruce Campbell's death scene, and then run far away.

Ineptly written, feebly acted, clumsily directed yawner of an adventure yarn.

This glib, overheated film about vicious primates delivers little suspense...

A lighthearted, good old-fashioned jungle adventure.

Not funny bad, just bad bad. The worst adaptation of a Michael Crichton book so far.

If you want to dwell on details, you won't like this film, but if you just sit back and relax and try not to be crabby, it is a lot of fun.

The entire tone of the book has been transformed from tension to tongue-in-cheek with dismal results.
