It's a shocker: clunkingly written, dismally acted, haphazardly directed, and with some of the most glaringly conspicuous sound-stages masquerading as the African jungle ever seen in a major American movie.

The lackluster adventure film misses out on most of the thrills from the Michael Crichton 1980 bestseller.

A goofy mess whose screws aren't loose, but missing entirely.

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.

December 31, 2004
No comparison to the book, but not bad for a chuckle. Harmless fun with primate puppets.
September 17, 2004
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.

May 20, 2003
This glib, overheated film about vicious primates delivers little suspense...
May 14, 2003
A lighthearted, good old-fashioned jungle adventure.
| Original Score: 3/4
April 28, 2003
Not funny bad, just bad bad. The worst adaptation of a Michael Crichton book so far.
