Movie Info

This film is an adaptation of wildlife expert Dian Fossey's autobiography. Midwesterner Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) leaves the United States for Africa, where she studies the gorillas of Rwanda and Uganda. As Fossey develops a bond with the animals, she also becomes wary of the poachers who prey on them. Fearing that the gorillas will go extinct if humans continue to hunt them, she organizes a defense league to protect the animals; in doing so, though, she puts herself in a perilous situation.

Audience Reviews for Gorillas in the Mist

  • Sep 13, 2013
    Weaver embodies Fossey the conservationist and Fossey the unmovable force who likely created her own demise. Call her the anti-Jane Goodall.

    Probably Sigourney Weaver's best performance as naturalist Dian Fossey. Normally she receives and excels at ice queen roles or at kicking ass, here she's kicking ass through activism and displays a rarely seen fiery passion.

    Shockingly good. Real-life stories are always more powerful and meaningul than those invented by man's creativity. Apted's early catchy scope captures the landscapes of a forgotten world in which savagery plays a very important role as an inert character. Weaver is quite amazing, to be honest. Tragic and moving, reality is portrayed in a very honest manner and just for that, I applaud its bravery. In the end, you'll ask yourself: Who's the real savage? 81/100

    The film is bogged down by a tedious love story and I was disapointed it didn't spend more time on Fossey's all out war to protect the Gorillas. While she did do a lot of important research, what is infinitely more facinating was the near insane lengths she went to in order to protect these animals and even to avenge them. Sigorney Weaver is very good, but the film doesn't allow her the opportunity to fully explore the character.
