A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Scheduled for Memorial Day release, Congo, the latest adaptation of a Michael Crichton novel into film, promises to be one of the biggest movies of 1995. This action-packed, jungle adventure recounts the story of Amy, a gorilla who can speak English with the help a virtual reality glove. Full color throughout.

Review:

If you saw the 1995 film adaptation of this Crichton thriller, somebody owes you an apology. While you're waiting for that to happen, try reading the vastly more intelligent novel on which the movie was based. The broad lines of the plot remain the same: A research team deep in the jungle disappears after a mysterious and grisly gorilla attack. A subsequent team, including a sign-language-speaking simian named Amy, follows the original team's tracks only to be subjected to more mysterious and grisly gorilla attacks. If you can look past the breathless treatment of '80s technology, like voice-recognition software and 256K RAM modules (the book was written in 1980), you'll find the same smart use of science and edge-of-your-seat suspense shared by Crichton's other work. --Paul Hughes
