Jungle Hell

This film from the late 1970's isn't as bad as it would seem, although it could have been better if they worked on the character development and the plot instead of concentrating the sequences as nothing but battle related themes. The story is about a rubber plantation in South America which is worked by foreigners, indians, and prisoners. They all have to contend with an evil planation owner played with zeal by the great actor Garcia (a popular latin actor who is concentrating on soap operas now). He could have been a Latin Paul Newman but films like this did not establish his dramaturgical expression and credibility. His arch nemesis in the film is played with silent self assuredness by Rivera (another leading man in latin film). The plot deals with some of the intelligent workers leading a rebellion against the vicious owner and there are battles with armed guards and dangerous jungle crossings along the way. This was made in the 70's so you have to bear with the corny music that doesn't really fit the period, which could have been 1898, or so, its hard to tell because of the random infusion of clothes, guns, and unhistorical elements in the film. It wants to be a cheap version of 'Papillion' but mainly it is for action buffs. Altogether you won't be bored by it but neither will you be entirely impressed.
