Surely one doesn't toss something called Blood Monkey into their DVD player with the expectation of something brilliant in return, but there's stupid and there's stupid.
A film so stupid there are no monkeys in sight. There are apes, which look like your average CGI gorillas. The film has a cast of annoying characters, from the whiny monkey fodder, to ACADEMY AWARD WINNING F. Murray Abraham pretty much screaming "I'm a psychopath". It's annoying and confusing, especially the urinating scene. The monkey/apes/whatevers are disappointingly absent throughout the entire film. They manage to show up just in time for a five second shot, in a Blair Witch style ending. It's a shame the film forgot the monkeys and the fun.
It is a poor movie, but it can be watched. The movie lacks tension - and as such it is not a 'whole film' - the lighting, music, atmosphere, do not co-conspire to create a tense environment - there is no 'mood' to the film which keeps the viewers locked in. The young student actors are all pretty and none really leave a lasting impression aside from their good looks. This was clearly a low budget movie, with the monsters staying out of eye-sight until the end of the movie (which could well have been a good move considering the paltry CGI employed).
A movie of some interest, that somewhat resembles a bit of the story plot, 'Congo'. F Murray Abraham stars in this movie on a search for a rare gorilla find. Worth seeing.
