The second is the acting in the film is full of the typical stereotypes. Tim Curry, who is usually better in other films, probably comes out the worst. He plays a Romanian interested in finding an ancient city. Curry's accent is the worst and even if it's just a gag accent, it's very stereotypical and an insult to anybody of Romanian birth. The third problem in this is that awful swelling music during dramatic scenes. Enough already!!! The best performance in the cast is Ernie Hudson ("Ghostbusters" and "The Crow") as the expert hunter. He actually makes something of his performance, which would have been a complete disaster with anyone else. The action, Hudson's performance and possibly the "performance" by a "gorilla" named Amy.
This is probably not sticking to the original story, but the three above mentioned things keep this from being a bad film.
