Terrible terrible terrible, I guess F. Murray Abraham needs money and has lost all self respect. Everything sucks, plot, acting, effects. In fact the only reason this gets 1 star is cause everybody ends up dying in the end, which I was happy with cause they were just that dumb. Good monkey, bad movie.
A film so stupid there are no monkeys in sight. There are apes, which look like your average CGI gorillas. The film has a cast of annoying characters, from the whiny monkey fodder, to ACADEMY AWARD WINNING F. Murray Abraham pretty much screaming "I'm a psychopath". It's annoying and confusing, especially the urinating scene. The monkey/apes/whatevers are disappointingly absent throughout the entire film. They manage to show up just in time for a five second shot, in a Blair Witch style ending. It's a shame the film forgot the monkeys and the fun.
So it wasn't particulary good but I must admit I enjoyed watching it. Clever storyline and idea for a film and I feel for the most part it was portrayed fairly well. Acting was reasonably good despite F. Murray Abraham being the only actor I actually knew. Like any B-Grade Horror film it was very corny but sometimes it's actually a lot of fun to watch corny Horror films because they are very entertaining. Its quite disappointing that we never really see the so-called 'Blood Monkey' until the very end, and even that was a bit of a let down. For the record; like most B-Grade Horror films the ending sucked and its a shame because it was showing promise to having a really cool ending as well. Overall it's not going to win any awards but I was entertained and enjoyed watching it :)
deary me - ok with the title such as it is I know it won't be up for an Oscar - however this was so poor - for a start the students were so stereotypical - the geek wore black rimmed glasses, also a pretty girl and an obnoxious loud mouthed twat in tow and the nutty professor - a jungle which looked like over grown pot plants and nobody sweated in the jungle and you don't get to see killer monkey until the end - what was the secret exactly - we know whose done it, the clues in the title. Utter nonsense
It is a poor movie, but it can be watched. The movie lacks tension - and as such it is not a 'whole film' - the lighting, music, atmosphere, do not co-conspire to create a tense environment - there is no 'mood' to the film which keeps the viewers locked in. The young student actors are all pretty and none really leave a lasting impression aside from their good looks. This was clearly a low budget movie, with the monsters staying out of eye-sight until the end of the movie (which could well have been a good move considering the paltry CGI employed).
Grupa stereotipnih tinejdzera-studenata(sa obaveznom plavusom,sarlatanom i streberom) dolazi u dzunglu da bi ucestvovali na antropoloskoj ekspediciji.Ono sto ne slute je da ce ih profesor,vodja projekta,beskrupulozno koristiti kao mamce,ne bi li uhvatio nikad vidjenog primata i tako dosao do slave i naucnog ugleda.Film je niskobudzetan(mislim da ima svega dvadesetak ljudi u ekipi),no to nije opravdanje da gledaoci skoro pa da nikako ne vide vrazje majmune koji siju strah,nego su prepusteni ocajnoj glumi iz koje taj strah (treba da) proizilazi.
It sounds like something Homer Simpson would write (right down to having F. Murray Abraham...F. Murray Abraham!!). Too much annoying teens and not enough Monkey, or specifically Blood Monkey. Surprisingly dull for a movie with such an amazing title.
