Stock footage galore!
28 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

All I can say about this movie is "wow, that was bad!" I admit, i was in tears laughing about 15 minutes into the movie - but it was from a combination of the rediculous narration and the horrible horrible pain the movie was causing me. Essentially, this guy and a guide go back into the jungle to look for his lost party; along the way you will witness about an hours worth of stock animal footage (supposedly of the Congo, but there is a fair bit of American wildlife mixed in) and 20 minutes of rediculous wanderin through the jungle. The movie cuts back to another jungle traveller now and again showing how easy of a time he is having, while the other two are facing a life and death struggle. The point of the movie seems to be that if you respect the jungle, you will be okay, but if you are looking for treasure, the jungle is a horrible place. In the end this is a horrible movie that leaves you screaming for the hour and a half of your life back. If you love to rent bad movies, then i would recommend this one

  • cuz its a whole new level of bad!
