Goofs

The boat that the expedition crew is aboard while sailing upriver appears to be a steamboat (it has a smokestack and a steam whistle), but during more than one scene you can clearly hear the diesel engine running. See more »

Quotes

Paco: Remember that women have a pact with the devil... But don't worry, because we have no women here.
Jaime: That's good, because after seeing those tigers fighting out there, that suits me just fine.

F**K Yeah
20 October 2001 | by (Lawrence, KS) – See all my reviews

This is the best Indiana Jones knockoff I have ever seen. What it lacks in originality it makes up for in stupidity. Catchy and original names for characters like Gringo and Paco. Cheesy and lame effects make for fun. The props are about as pathetic as you can get. It stars a real hard ass (Gringo) who doesn't take crap from anyone or anything. I was also pleased by the work of Donald Pleasance. Donald plays really crappy villains well, if you can check him out in the movie Puma Man, he plays the ultimate in villainy, Kobras. Anyway, some of my favorite scenes are the ones with graphic violence that is so cheesy, Kraft invested in its use on Macaroni. For example, when Gringo cuts off an indian's finger, the severed finger looks like a carrot with ketchup on it. Good laughs if you watch while drinking lots of beer.
