Why is this movie so underrated?
Why can't movie fans rate a truly great movie like this one and rather prefer Mortal Kombat created in the same year consisting of a completely worse technical side? I'll start from the beginning.
First of all, this movie is one of my favorites without any doubt. Similarly like Jurassic Park, even Congo means my childhood to me with amazing experiences spending with this movie.
Honestly, Congo is not for everyone, it contains a lot of brutality, scary moments, sometimes there are comedy elements or just steps of adventure. Besides, I have never understood why people do not like this one, although it has everything that a good movie must have. It is full of perfect CGI, which honestly in that time of creation looked better than comparable with nowadays Jurassic world or other kinds of those movies. Great soundtrack Spirits of Africa by Jerry Goldsmith who's known from Rambo. Actors were pleasant. Ernie Hudson played James Bond in the jungle, Dylan Wallsh a young scientist, who learns gorillas talk with help of modern technology of science, Laura Linney fiancee of Bruce Campbell and Tim Curry as Homolka longing for gold, then what's wrong with Congo? As I mentioned, the plot deserves praise. We have an impressive story about the relationship among a human and a gorilla, however at least this fact was supposed to be rated. To be honest, nothing is wrong with Congo and the filmmakers have done a great job.
I did not find any mistakes I would have to say any bad words for. Maybe if the critics want, the weakest part of Congo belongs to Laura Linney, I would have supposed someone else instead of her, she's not a good actress, but it's too small a problem in order to decrease my ranking.
