Movie Reviews

R. Colletti | New Orleans | 05/04/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I found this movie to be enjoyable, UNTIL I got to the LAST CHAPTER: The movie STOPPED 3/4 of the way through the Last Chapter.
I sent the DVD back to Amazon, and promptly received another DVD.
The REPLACEMENT DVD was also DEFECTIVE, performing in the same manner.
Amazon should have some type of QUALITY CONTROL for their products.
The Critic | Windsor | 05/10/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Former WWF wrestling star turned B-movie actor Rowdy Roddy Piper leaps straight from the ring and right into the "Jungleground" for an all out assault on a ruthless neighborhood street gang and their leader named Odin (J.R. Bourne). For a low budget B-action movie starring Roddy Piper "Jungleground" is a very entertaining movie filled with lots of explosive action. Piper plays a police detective named Lt. Jake Cornel and for him the challenge is to escape the "Jungleground" and get back home before dawn. If he succeeds he'll be free to go if not, Odin's men will kill his girlfriend. Will Cornel get out in time to save his girlfriend?

Platinum Disc Corporation has done a really good job with the audio and video transfer for this DVD release. The 2.0 sound is crisp and the video transfer is about the best version of "Jungleground" I've ever seen. Platinum Disc has also managed to do something the other studios couldn't; this version has the complete ending. I have purchased two inferior versions of this movie from other studios in the past and both have missing footage. The streets have been turned into a "Jungleground" enter if you dare!

"This ingenious engrossing film is defective on the last chapter. Not to detract from this amazing film, but when you're watching something this crappy, it probably isn't that imporatant what the ending is. Maybe such an abrupt and unexpected cut adds character to this fine cinematic gem."
