Storyline

The beauty and splendor of Rio de Janeiro and the Brazilian countryside provide the backdrop for this adventure story. A crooked, money hungry exiled criminal develops a scheme to make enough money to gain entrance back to the United States. He hires diamond hunter T. J. Mitchell who solicits the services of oil wildcatters Phil and Ernie to transfer enough explosives to an isolated area so they can divert a river and uncover a fortune in diamonds. The trek to the back-roads of Brazil involve a run-in with mercenaries as well as revolutionaries intent on providing water to their people. Mitchell learns he was double-crossed, as the diamonds were planted. But the team of Phil and Ernie go ahead with the explosives mission, as they were only in it for the money.

One of Vic Morrow's best.
19 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Although this was a made for television movie it was a great vehicle to show off Vic's amazing talent. He (Phil) and Claude Aiken's (Ernie) play wildcatter's drilling for oil down in Brazil. Being down on their luck, they sign on as explosive experts with a rather wealthy `fugitive of the USA' named Mr. Twitchell, played by Edmond O'Brien. They are to help extract diamonds that were found in a river bed deep in the Brazilian wilderness. Deception from a beautiful guide Louise Sorrell and tense moments in hauling nitro-glycerin over treacherous Brazilian back roads make for an interesting adventure of what the real reason is for using their expertise.
