Conrado San Martín,
A plane leaving the turmoil of a South American country in the midst of a revolution crash-lands in the Amazon jungle in Brazil. Among the passengers are a corrupt banker who is smuggling diamonds out of the country, a reporter, a mysterious beauty and a shady flight attendant. The survivors find themselves up against not only the dangers of the jungle itself but a band of headhunters and a gang of revolutionaries who are looking for the smuggled diamonds. Written by
Disaster movie where they couldn't afford the disaster
Not sure how to rate this. It's an ultra-low quality film which, in terms of what it set out to achieve, fails miserably. The plane crash (I hope I'm not giving away too much of the plot here) is conveyed to the audience principally by means of horrified expressions on bystanders' faces, plus a little flame-coloured lighting. Needless to say, the tension is non-existent.
However, it does have a redeeming feature. It's unintentionally hilarious. Minimalist special effects aside, the dubbed English dialogue is dreadfully stilted, well beyond the point at which a soap opera script editor would blanch, and the scene in which the, er, hunky guy picks up the love interest by means of his sexy whistling (honestly) is a golden moment in cinema history.
Get many, many beers in and enjoy.
