Like King Solomon’s Mine I am digging up this wonderful artifact of filmmaking. Congo is a pure guilty pleasure in every sense of the word. It was panned by critics, set up for numerous Razzies, but damned if I don’t love the hell out of this movie. A jungle adventure where the gray gorillas protect an ancient diamond that hasn’t yet been exploited by child labor and Freedom Fighters for profit, it had laughs, chills, kills and hammy acting that just called to me from the depths of the jungle. Also a talking gorilla! AMY GOOD GORILLA!
