Decent Jungle Exploit
FD | Canada | 03/13/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is not Jess Franco's greatest work, but it's still entertaining nonetheless. The story is easy to follow and sets itself up very quickly in the beginning of the film. The English dubbing was done fairly well and was not distracting. The quality of the print was very bad early on in the film, but seemed to improve as it went on. Overall the picture and sound for this Disc are decent quality.This is only for movie goers that don't analyze every minute detail and just want to watch something in this type of genre. There isn't anything too violent, gory or disturbing in this movie. It's fairly easy to follow and watch. There is a good dose of nudity, which to people familiar with Franco's work, is no surprise. There are also some moments of unintentional laughter which add to this film's charm. I'm giving it 4 out of 5, but I am a fan of Jess Franco's and have viewed many exploitation and horror films. I'm guessing other reviews will be very much mixed. This should not be your #1 choice if you want to see what Director Franco's work is all about, but still worth at least one viewing experience."
For cannibal film fans and Franco completists

"This is one of those cannibal movies Franco made in the early 1980s, and if you've seen any of the others, you know what to expect. If you haven't it's your average low budget cannibal movie. Buy this movie if you fall into one of these two categories: A) cannibal movie lovers, or B) Jess Franco completists. It doesn't have much of Franco's trademark directing styles and is not for those who prefer his psychedelic films or his sexploitation movies of the late 60s and early 70s."
Nude Jungle Girl Runs Through Jungle

"The DVD cover is the only non-topless part of the movie. I think you do have to watch almost 3 seconds into the film before a closeup of her breast. There is a plot about some sort of jungle takeover but mostly it concerns this white girl who was lost in the jungle and now is the leader of her tribe and we can be thankful for two things - no one cares she's topless and she resists all efforts to cover her up during several kidnappings and "tarzan" like plot points as she escapes back to the jungle. Don't come for the plot, just stay for the nudity. Is it a great film? - no, of course not. But what's wrong with wall to wall jungle girl toplessness plus many other women topless ... not brilliant but solid entertainment for the topless jungle babe genre."
Very fun to watch,

"i havent seen to many of jes francos films, the ones i have seen usually dissapoint me. i didnt expect much from this film. i was afraid it would be boring and a pain to sit through. i was very surprised to find this film a very fun b movie. the plot involves a group heading into the jungle to find a dying womans daughter who has become the leader of a savage tribe of cannibals. the group intends to get the daughters inheritence (or something) by leaving her in the jungle (or killing her, dont remember) but the groups macho, do well guide doesnt want any part in this scheme. the plot doesnt hold together very well as the characters intensions seem to change every 10 minutes and nothing very exciting ever happens. the film is nothing more than an excuse to get the 3 lead actresses (and the george eastman look alike) naked and thats fine with me. there isnt any gore or graphic violence except for a breif, non gory decapitation. the whole film has a very bizzare atmosphere due to its strange cast and very psychodelic soundtrack. seriously, the music in this film was great, very strange synthesizer that gives the film a 70's feel. the dubbing is hilarious and it doesnt help that the dialouge is horribly bad. again, this adds to the films cheesy appeal. if you like so bad its good cinema with tons of trashy nudity, funky music and horendous dubbing then give diamonds of kilimandjaro a chance. i had fun with it and you will to, 4/5"
