All dumb romance, immature jokes, (unconscious?) racism and a child's sense of adventure.

Politics take a back seat to sex, served up in a dazzling wealth of innuendo.
July 7, 2010
Richly entertaining, with vivid characters.
May 13, 2008
The story is nothing more than a poor excuse for what Hawks really seems to be interested in presenting--big-game chases over the Kenyan veldt. These sequences are so well done that they save this otherwise-tepid film.

The strapping physique of the film unhappily emphasizes the anemic condition of the story streaming within.

A broader canvas for the interaction of comedy and drama than its immediate predecessor (Rio Bravo), this is both discursive and leisurely.

This late masterpiece (1962) by Howard Hawks transcends every literary value in the book to become a brilliantly entertaining and insightful work of pure cinema.

Colorful John Wayne Africa-based yarn w/slapstick, adventure, animals, and great Mancini score.

Hawks continues to explore his favorite themes--professional conduct and male camaraderie--in this African travelogue abouyt an international team of animals catchers, headed by John Wayne. Though plotless, the film is visually compelling.

Perhaps the accent on the trapping of free-roaming critters for use in zoos is a mite too heavy, but this aspect of African business rates the attention it receives here.

A 159-minute romantic comedy, set in Africa and starring John Wayne? Quite an idea they had there...

It sets a pace, keeps it up for the whole time, and gives us a sense of danger and excitement, plus a taste of life that special effects can't give us.
