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.

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.

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

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.

A splendid example of a genre no longer much in fashion, the jungle adventure story.

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.

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.

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