Congo is a throwback African Jungle adventure that pits a primatologist, fortune hunters, an ex-CIA agent and others against warring factions, hungry hippos, and killer volcano-dwelling mutant apes bred to defend an ancient diamond mine! Laura Linney, Bruce Campbell and Tim Curry are nearly upstaged by a clever, "talking" gorilla named Amy, who just wants to return to her kind. Some jokes here and there soften the blow of bad acting, very contrived dangers and other faux pas. Not one of the best adaptations of a Michael Crichton book by far, but oddly entertaining at times.

Trivia: According to Frank Marshall, the diamonds used in the movie were borrowed from Herkimer Diamond Mines in New York. However at the end of the movie, a diamond is thrown out of the balloon. This diamond actually ended up being lost and never found.
