Reviews


75
Observer - Rex Reed
Recent complaints about action flicks with no action can be ameliorated by Primal, a white-knuckle thriller with a thrill a minute. Nicolas Cage delivers his best performance in years.

The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
No film involving Nicholas Cage and a blowgun with curare-tipped darts can be all bad, and Primal gives us at least a little of everything we'd want in this kind of yarn.
50
Uproxx - Vince Mancini
At times, watching Nic Cage over emote every single line and bad guys get iced by killer monkeys is as sublime as it sounds.
42
The A.V. Club - Mike D'Angelo
One hires Cage for a generic timewaster like this in the hope that he’ll make it at least a little more interesting on screen than it was on paper, by virtue of some crazed facial expressions and off-the-wall line readings, but he evidently wasn’t in the experimenting mood.

Variety - Dennis Harvey
That this mashup of too many familiar action-thriller elements doesn’t emerge a generic mess is a credit to all involved. That it’s passably entertaining but also instantly forgettable comes as less of a surprise.
