  1. Aardsy's rating of the film The Naked Jungle

    Would be 10 times better with GIANT ants.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Naked Jungle

    Dans la terrible jungle amazonienne, une gigantesque invasion de fourmis ne peut être stoppée que par la destruction d'un barrage dont les eaux vont noyer les redoutables bestioles ..... DELASSANT !

  3. My Paredros's rating of the film The Naked Jungle

    Goofy contortion of Stephenson's Leiningen Versus the Ants, well goofy in its own right. The short story is pre-war German, the film post-war American--both concerned with an unempathetic and ambiguous communism (ANTS). More useful as a historical document re. popular social consciousness in the mid-century west than as cinema.

  4. Mark Garrett's rating of the film The Naked Jungle

    Typically of Haskin, it's pretty entertaining, but there's a jarring contrast between a weird mail-order-bride set-up justifying sexism with Parker and Heston's characters, and then an army-ant prompted change of heart is streaked with a very racist white-man telling the natives what to do. In fact, Heston forces his workers to act like whites and stand their ground against something they know is unbeatable.
