Storyline

A small airplane crashes in the sweltering deserts of southern Africa hundreds of miles from civilization. As parallels are drawn between the stranded group of seven passengers and a nearby pack of savage baboons, one of the men's survivalist nature gets the better of him, as he decides his chances of survival would be better if the other men were eliminated one-by-one.

A recommendation to view the film
14 January 2001 | by (Modesto, Ca. U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I thought the film was very entertaining just for the pure animalistic ,suvival of the fittest quality.It has been many years since I saw the film, but it really made a lasting impression on me.Stewart Whitman did a great job with the portrayal of the great hunter trnsforming from sportsman to survivalist.The sub-plots and the interactions of the other characters in the film was a timless struggle between good and evil as compared to the need to survive at any cost.I would love to see the film again,but I have not been able to find a copy of it or a time and place for a showing. If you get a chance to see the film I would highly recommend doing so.It made a real impression on me and if you like a good action/adventure film the same may be true for you as well. Happy viewing, Robert
