Congo

* 1/2*

Adaptation of the Michael Crichton novel about an expedition into the African jungle to find the lost city of Zinj. Seriously dumbed-down version of the novel. Several key and exciting plot points were scrapped in order to simplify the meager remains to the point where even an ape will know what to expect next. If you've read the novel, forget the movie. Otherwise, if you can sit through an hour of repetitive bad acting, the second half actually isn't that bad. (Paramount)
