3.0 out of 5 stars Poor
Sure, it's been pushed by Disney as Free Willy in the Jungle--probably because it was directed by Simon Wincer, who helmed the original whale-human bonding movie--but this kids' flick is definitely its own stinky animal. Set in Vietnam during the height of U.S. involvement there, the film follows the misadventures of a group of Green Berets (including aw-shucks Danny...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 31 Mar 2011

This review is from: Operation Dumbo Drop [DVD] (DVD)
The film is great and suitable for all. After being the cause of the death of the village's only means of transport, the elephant, a US Army officer and his unit struggle to deliver it a replacement live elephant, so as to retain their help throughout the war. With a mismatched motley crew featuring the great Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) and Denis Leary (Rescue Me)what could go wrong!

This is a great wee film, it is light hearted and funny, and who could complain when you get to watch a young (sexy) Ray Liotta!!

It has been a long time since seen this movie when received in mail had to watch straight away. This is another movie that I had to have tissues with but a great story and hard case actors. Well done a mighty film.

This review is from: Operation Dumbo Drop [DVD] (DVD)
Sure, it's been pushed by Disney as Free Willy in the Jungle--probably because it was directed by Simon Wincer, who helmed the original whale-human bonding movie--but this kids' flick is definitely its own stinky animal. Set in Vietnam during the height of U.S. involvement there, the film follows the misadventures of a group of Green Berets (including aw-shucks Danny Glover, by-the-book Ray Liotta, and weaselly, contraband-producing Denis Leary) as they try to secure the favor of an elder in a strategically important village. To do this, they must defy orders and produce a live elephant to replace the village's dead mascot. What follows is a lengthy journey through the jungle, punctuated by rote bouts of bickering between flexible Glover and rigid Liotta (who is so rigid, in fact, that his neck veins sometime look like they're about to explode) over the health and well-being of their new four-ton pal, a playful pachyderm named Bo Tat. The conflicts, of course, aren't really conflicts at all--they exist mainly to prolong the plot so that it fills out a feature-length program slot. And, ultimately, all's well that ends well, with a predictable outcome that seems downright surreal because it occurs in the middle of the Tet Offensive. For all its situational weirdness and filmmaking subcompetence, there's something about humans interacting with giant, friendly animals that just works. Adults may suffer through it, but kids will eat it up faster than a bag of warm circus peanuts.
