According to director Just Jaeckin the final temple location of the film was actually shot on one stage with "roll-away" walls that were dressed and rearranged before each scene to give the appearance of many different rooms. See more »
During the fight scene on the river between Willard's boat and the Chinamen's Junk, one of the subtitles shows a character's line and then follows it with the word "Bible?" which has no relevance to anything on the screen and seems to refer back to a line at the start of the film. See more »
This movie is so much fun for so many reasons. It has action, ridiculous dialogue, rampant sexism, a dash of gore, and very funny performances. There are many schools of thought that might say Tawny Kitaen's performance was bad. I disagree. Her blend of innocence, energy, and complete lack of formal actor training are perfect for this movie. Much of the same goes for Brent Huff as the leading man. Watch this film with friends! Oh, and did I mention nudity? It's got that too. An excellent cinematic experience. Sequel, please.
