Four American friends, badly needing money, decide to make a commando-like raid into a South American country and steal $5 million from the hacienda of an American-born drug dealer who lives there. The four Americans then succeed rather easily in stealing the money, but soon run into trouble trying to get back out of the country, as both the drug dealer and a small army of bandits each hunt them down trying to get the money.

This movie was not the first time that James Coburn and Anthony Quinn had appeared in the same movie. They both starred in A High Wind in Jamaica (1965) about sixteen years earlier. Though they both acted together in that movie, they appear in the same sequence at the end of this movie but don't actually act together in the same shot. See more »

Talk about an independently produced film! This one's a wonderful example of how hard the indies work, and what good movies they make.
How they ever convinced a cast like this to go sweat it out in a jungle, I can't imagine. James Brolin shines, but so do they all.
And I still can't believe they got somebody to handle a snake that BIG just for a 5-second shot, which you better believe they captured in one perfect take, 'cause that snake was headed for home the instant they released it!
This is a fine, light hearted action film, fast paced, well written and plotted and with a lot of depth. Each actor obviously got way into his role, especially Anthony Quinn. And those whacko airplane pilots! The old C-47 STILL RULES!!!
