Fantastic film. I fail to understand why the critics hated it so much. This is Big Trouble in Little China for the 1990s, set in an African jungle. It may not be as good as BTILC, but it's a damn fun adventure yarn. You've got Fantastic film. I fail to understand why the critics hated it so much. This is Big Trouble in Little China for the 1990s, set in an African jungle. It may not be as good as BTILC, but it's a damn fun adventure yarn. You've got action, adventure, romance, a crazy guy who talks funny, the cool African-American from Ghostbusters (he is SUCH a cool character), really cool special effects (the aeroplane flaregun scene was awesome), plus LAZERS! Come on people, how could this film get any better? Really, the only thing that let's it down is some excess sentimentalism regarding Amy the talking gorilla. It's pure non-stop fun, and anyone who criticises it needs to get their fun glands checked. If you like films like BTILC, Golden Child, and other awesome 80s films, then watch this. It's a retro-styled blast from the past, and it is awesome. Expand

This movie may not be a classic, but the critics' overly negative consensus was not very fair. The movie was entertaining at times, especially toward the end, when the man-eating gorillas attacked, and the special effects were pretty good.

Some of these critics just need to have a nice, relaxing dump.
Does not deserve such a rating. Not every movie needs to be a Stanley Kubrick masterpiece. Avatar was a complete hack of Dances with Wolves and Ferngully with worldwide

Avatar was a complete hack of Dances with Wolves and Ferngully with worldwide success....yet this kind of original popcorn fun is buried.
It's unbelievable how much some of these crotch stains love the smell of their own farts.
Rent it. This is a classic B-movie. It's not nostalgia that's guiding my view on this. This movie is still good by today's standards.
It's not as deep as Jurassic Park, but it's still a memorable flick.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie is a shining example of what cinema should strive to be. Set in the deep jungles of Africa, this action packed thrill ride provides moviegoers with almost 2 hours of non stop fun. One of the best characters in this movie is actually a Gorilla named Amy portrayed by renowned African actor Adewalé! Throughout the course of the movie, I always on the edge of my seat, heart pounding wondering what misfortune would befall the amazing team of actors including fish-face and many but not all of the Harlem Globe Trotters. Tyler Perry has truly outdone himself this time! I give this movie a 4.... out of "4". Expand

This jungle adventure movie belongs to the Saturday morning crowd of movie aficionados and enjoyed late night with a bottle of Tequilla. Witty, well edited and fun, Congo survives its bad gorilla costumes. Its bad special effects look worseThis jungle adventure movie belongs to the Saturday morning crowd of movie aficionados and enjoyed late night with a bottle of Tequilla. Witty, well edited and fun, Congo survives its bad gorilla costumes. Its bad special effects look worse than usual because they occur too close to the good special effects. Expand
