A Great Jem, fantastic from the stunning start to the dframatic and wonderfil middle and wow what an ending, great work. I liked this a lot. The film is loosely based on the book witht he same title. A great film. Love the music a lot It helps it all the way through this timelessly classic. A fine cast is in top form. Fantastic oopening sequences with baboons and then we finally see the cast in a situation I have never seen before. I dont ever remembefring seeing a better film like this ever. Hollywood has never done anything like this before. A true classic. Fantastic special effects help this big time. A great ending. and what an idea using a computer in those days they were not around yet. Fine acting.
