King of the Jungle

B-

Most movies featuring mentally challenged protagonists teach that we can all learn from the innocence of special people, but Leguizamo’s Knicks-obsessed Seymour, who has the intellect of an 11-year-old, learns that everyone of average intellect is a bastard. Whenever he leaves his Manhattan apartment, he is bullied and attacked, and eventually he witnesses a horrific murder. Leguizamo vanishes heartbreakingly into his role, but, unfortunately, such nuance doesn’t always apply to the rest of the relentlessly — save a contrived happy ending — dark script.
