Newt's movie review

Sigourney Weaver puts forth an amazing and totally believable performance. Her anger and ire, love and frustration are evocative and impressive. The movie itself is rather good, being based on Fossey's autobiography, but it is Weaver's performance that makes it a Must See.

Ripley's movie review

The script left something to be desired but it's still a fascinating story with great performances by Weaver and the gorillas. Definitely worth watching.
