Congo (1995)

Directed by
Frank Marshall

Frank Marshall's all-out-action film stars Laura Linney, Dylan Walsh, Tim Curry and Ernie Hudson as a disparate group who embark on an expedition into the heart of the Congo.

Each has different reasons for setting out into the unknown. But having survived volcanoes and hungry hippo attacks, nothing could have prepared them for the greatest danger: a troop of intelligent killer apes who, as one critic wrote, '...make King Kong look like the Jolly Green Giant'.

Based on Michael Crichton's bestseller, Marshall's film is great fun, with wonderful cliffhanging moments and, in Dr Karen Ross, a character who can out-tough Indiana Jones any day.
