Product Description

Product Description

Joe is a smart and friendly fifteen foot gorilla who has grown up with his best friend Jill Young (Charlize Theron) in the remote mountains of Central Africa. But Joe's peaceful life is disturbed by the arrival of poachers and it is up to Jill and zoologist Gregg O'Hara (Bill Paxton) to rescue their ape friend. Joe is moved to California where he is safely placed within an animal conservatory. But his reputation has spread across the globe and now that his anonymity has disappeared, how long can he stay safe from bloodthirsty hunters?

From Amazon.co.uk

Charlize Theron is the latest stunning blonde to be hanging around some big ape in a Hollywood movie, this one a remake of the 1949 semi-classic with echoes of the superior King Kong. Theron plays the daughter of an American researcher killed by poachers in Africa. The baby gorilla left in her care grows up to become a hugely tall and broad specimen named Joe, living in the mountains as a mostly unseen legend among people who live there. Along comes an eco-minded emissary (Bill Paxton) from a California sanctuary, who talks the jungle girl into providing safe haven for Joe at the LA facility. The transition is not without discomfort but everything is aggravated via a conspiracy of poachers to get Joe into their own greedy hands. Director Ron Underwood (City Slickers) uses a combination of special-effects techniques to give Joe life and personality, and he succeeds quite effectively. The requisite giant-ape-goes-amok scenes are all in place-a couple of them pretty intense--as is a conclusion that finds the simian hero performing a stunning feat of escalation. Underwood attempts to give a little modern spin to some classic Hollywood conventions regarding wild hearts lost in civilization and the results are pretty agreeable family fare. --Tom Keogh

A typical Disney classic; funny and sad with a happy ending - what more can one want. Well done to the producers who brought this loveable creature to life.

Incredible animation and attention to detail make you really believe the illusion of life in the creature. A great family film to enjoy again and again.

Fantastic heart warming film w/ State-of-the art SPFX! Charlize never looked more beautiful. Rick Baker's finest achievement! Joe looks totally "real." Only way it could be better is if it were available on Blu-ray.

I have rated this as 4 Stars because it is clearly aimed at a family audience and as such it delivers great entertainment that both adults and children can watch without parents having to be concerned about violence/sex or anything else they may not want their children to see.

If you want some thing for all the family to enjoy then watch this.

I loved this film as a child when it came out on video and so the DVD was an essential add to my collection. It still makes me cry but is a fantastic film for everyone. It was nice for me to watch for the nostalgia but my husband, who had never watched it before, enjoyed it too. It is a lovely film and it is just so cute!

After having seen this film on TV our five year old grandson fell in love with Mighty Joe, so we purchased the DVD, it's a wonder it is not worn out having been played virtually non stop every time he is here,
a very worthwhile purchase.
