Variety Review: Daniel Radcliffe in ‘Jungle’

Variety

There doesn’t outwardly appear to be a psychotic killer on the loose in “Jungle,” the fifth feature from slash-happy Aussie horror specialist Greg McLean, but it turns out Mother Nature is more than happy to do the honors. A booby-trapped backpacker survival saga set in deepest Bolivia, based on a memoir by Israeli explorer Yossi Ghinsberg, “Jungle” may ostensibly be a nobler departure from the exuberantly grisly genre fare on which McLean has made his name — but structurally and atmospherically, it has more in common with his smashing 2005 breakout “Wolf Creek” than you might guess.

The story is too old to be commented.
