Ron Underwood's gorilla movie comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. There are no subtitles accessible on this release. Supplemental materials include a theatrical trailer and a production featurette. This family themed film underwhelmed at the box office and this DVD does little to change its fate in the home video market.

My children love this movie. It does have some violence so it is not appropriate for really young children but it has alot of action and a good message.

It's very sad what the little girl experienced at such an early age but she was determined to keep a promise she made to her mother relating to Joe, a huge, lovable gorilla. She grows up to be a beautiful, but courageous woman and shows no fear to anyone. Bill Paxton is fascinated with Joe, but he becomes more interested his leading lady. Romance blooms, past problems appear in the present, and the gorilla is on the run.
