Movie Info

A Tanganyka-based group of hunters (Red Buttons, Hardy Kruger, Gérard Blain) led by Sean Mercer (John Wayne) trap wild African animals for zoos. A curvaceous reporter (Elsa Martinelli) documents their exploits while having epic clashes with the gruff Irishman. She is initially frozen out of the testosterone-filled group until her strong-willed personality endears her to the men.

Audience Reviews for Hatari!

  • Oct 23, 2015
    A plotless (and interminable) travelogue that seems more like a cheap excuse for Hawks to spend vacation in Africa, and it is hard to empathize with hunters working to catch animals for zoos (I was rooting for the rhinos) but at least the characters are charismatic (despite the casual sexism).

    I'd like to see a lot more John Wayne movies in the future, but for now this is the only one I know I've seen right off the bat, and I enjoyed it a lot. It has a sort of love story to it, but the parts I remember most are when Wayne and the others are chasing a bunch of animals. It's like a fast-paced African safari!

    This is a tough one. All concerns for animal safety and cruelty aside, I enjoyed this colourful adventure film for its fine and hearty performances, tangible off-screen

    Great film, still enjoyable, with a fine blend of action, romance, and comedy with John wayne in Africa for zoo-supplying animal hunting. And Red Buttons is so funny guy.
