Lively tale in which the characters are even more interesting than the adventure.

Audience Reviews for The Naked Jungle

While the prospect of Charlton Heston fighting ants is WAY cool, the character Heston plays is not. He is one of the biggest douches in cinema.

Actually has some plot beyond the killer ants.

Anthony Valletta
