An explicit bending of history
12 April 2000 | by (Bonn, Germany) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I enjoyed watching the movie the first time. The movie portrays a country (supposed to be Nicaragua) before and in a revolution. The spectator of the film is forced to identify with Jack Cox who is a close friend to the dictator Somoza who will eventually flee from his country. As Jack Cox returns to Nicaragua once more, you get an apocalyptic feeling about the place that was just introduced as rather peaceful and enjoyable 30 minutes ago. This makes you think about why it had to turn into hell.

The answers given by the film are bizarre. Thus, you have to start thinking by yourself and get the impression that there must be more to it than is shown in the movie.

My interest on Nicaragua did arise because of this film. I read some books about its history and even travelled the country. So, the movie has added to my personal education of Central America, but definitely not as it was intended by the producer.
