In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Gorilla doesn't sleep tonight.
How wonderfully silly. Johnny Weissmuller stars as Jungle Jim, getting himself in a serialisation of a character not a million miles away from the Tarzan role that would define his film career. Plot has Jungle Jim going about his jungle business, hunting in the wild and larking about with his animal pals, when he is suddenly thrust into a mystery involving dubious Gorillas, stolen Nazi treasure and the protection of a couple of babes. Nefarious treasure hunters will stop at nothing to get the treasure, but they hadn't counted on Jim and his animal pals. Hooray!

What follows is a blend of stock wildlife footage with Jungle Jim wrestling a number of fake creatures, including men in Gorilla suits who are about as subtle as a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Dummies are flung off of cliffs when the chance arises, the human acting is about as useful as a brick built toilet at the Rhinoceros swamp, and Jim's indestructible being puts Captain Scarlet to shame. The animals are really cool, with Caw Caw the crow smarter than your average Gorilla and Skipper the dog capable of fighting off a lion and celebrating with a good smoke when survival of the fittest is assured.

Crappy but honest with it, a good time assured for those of us who trawl the lowbrow splinter of jungle based adventures... 6/10

Possibly the greatest film ever. Johnny Weissmuller puts other American actors of the time to shame with his portrayal of Jim, or jungle Jim as his friends call him. Seamlessly blending scenes of Africa and India to somehow evoke Southeast Asia, William Berke (dir) spared no expense on film reels of exotic animals fighting each other, gorilla suits, and a razor sharp script that could've been written by Katie Price. We are talking creme de la creme here. The story isn't important, but it consists of nazis dressed as gorillas, treasure, a crow which helps our titular hero to escape, find nazis, and save two women whom both have been brain damaged at some stage previous to the start of the film. Needless to say, our hero prevails- with a spectacular ending of a dog smoking a cigar with a chimpanzee. So called contemporary directors take note- this is what film making, cinema, popcorn and car adverts are all about. Dogs smoking cigars but with chimps. It is a formula that astounds. 10/10

HASH(0x97d53eac) out of 5 stars A Nostalgic Safari Into A B-Movie Jungle. 30 Dec. 2014
By David M. Goode - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This was the 3rd flick where former Olympic swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller portrays Alex Raymond's comic strip adventurer Jungle Jim.Like most of the movies from this series MARK OF THE GORILLA isn't great art.But it is good fun.I loved them as a kid.And still think they're great.This one has Jungle Jim thwarting a gang of treasure hunters,who disguise themselves as gorillas,from getting their hands on a stolen Nazi treasure.Yes,you read that right.The gang disguises themselves as gorillas!!!But Johnny as Jim sees through their ruse.Also along for the ride are Columbia starlets Trudy Marshall and Suzanne Talbert.Weissmuller never became much of an actor.He mostly grunted when he portrayed Tarzan in the movies from 1932 to 1948.But he's very believable as a two-fisted adventurer in this series.I received this as a Christmas gift from a friend who didn't know I already have the entire series on DVD from another source.Now if only someone would release the Jungle Jim TV series,also starring Weissmuller,on DVD.

HASH(0x97d53db0) out of 5 stars Fun and Educational 14 April 2011
By Talky Tina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
My young granddaughters really enjoyed this movie. They learned about the dangers of extinction that many wild animals are facing, and how the creation of protective sanctuaries are being utilized. And of course the story of a queen searching for the gold that had been stolen from her kingdom by the Nazis held their interest. They were amazed at the way some of the wild animals, such as Kaw Kaw the crow, were actually smart enough to aid Jungle Jim in his quest to thwart a gang of homicidal treasure hunters. This is real family fun to be sure!
