A fake Fabergé egg and a fellow agent's death lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
A group of outcasts from different backgrounds and nationalities are forced by misfortune to work in an oil-drilling operation in South America. When fire breaks out of control, four of the outcasts are given the opportunity to earn enough money to get out by transporting six crates of unstable dynamite through miles of jungle in two ancient trucks.

We're carrying three cases each. One is enough to blow out your fire, six cases will blow out the whole field. That means you don't think all the trucks will make it, one of us is a backup.
We want double, and legal residence... or we don't drive.
You leave in four hours.

At the end of the film as the last of the end credits scroll up, the music fades away and is replaced by the sound of an idling truck. See more »
I love this film, its my favorite William Friedkin film, and i believe its probably his best film ever. The film stays true to his style as an intense filmmaker, who wants everything to be reality based and realistic as possible. The only problem with the film is the title, it gives off the wrong image in peoples mind of what to expect. They should have call it "Wages of Fear." Another disappointment for me is i heard that a special edition digitized version of the movie was about to be released and over a year later nothing is even out. I love this movie and it should have gotten at least 5 Oscar nominations for 1977. I hope Friedkin makes another movie soon. Universal and Paramount needs to release the DVD now or I'm gonna cry.
