Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 03/??/1999
"...Theron is a saucy punchline to the movie's riddle..."
Box Office - 02/01/1999
"...It gently teaches lessons about respect for human and animal life while being thoroughly engaging..." -- 4 out of 5 stars

"...Technically, this Joe is a sensation, perhaps the most lifelike giant of them all..."

Product Description:

An enormous gorilla exhibits endless compassion and courage. In his native jungle he cares for and protects an orphaned girl who later brings him to Los Angeles to save him from ruthless poachers. However, once there, the man-made confines and threats from a new set of cruel and greedy trophy-hunters cause the otherwise gentle, but misunderstood, beast to totally flip out. Remake of the black and white classic.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Mighty Joe Young
In the classic tradition of heroic Disney adventures comes the extraordinary MIGHTY JOE YOUNG -- a thrilling story full of excitement, friendship, courage, and heart. The legendary Joe, a playful, smart fifteen-foot-tall gorilla, and his lifelong best friend Jill Young (Charlize Theron) have grown up together in the remote mountains of Central Africa. When Joe's peaceful existence is shattered by poachers, Jill and zoologist Gregg O'Hara (Bill Paxton) rescue their innocent friend and move him to the safety of an animal conservancy in California. But Joe's safety is short-lived. No longer a myth, his notoriety makes him a target for an enemy from his past -- a ruthless hunter who will do anything to capture the Mighty Joe. From the moment you meet him to his incredible display of courage, Mighty Joe Young will fill your eyes with wonder and your heart with magic.
