Storyline

Author Ted Angelo discovers an UFO in the Columbian jungle. When he tries to spread the word, he earns more than the usual disbelief: suddenly he's hunted by almost every organization, like CIA, KGB, the mob, Nazis... and even extraterrestrials - Those ETs obviously do not want to go home.

Movie did not live up to it's hype
6 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I inserted the DVD into the player one night to watch this little film starring Franco Nero. At first i was getting excited as it looked promising...The film starts off what looks like to be an adventure film a la Indiana Jones...but quickly deflates and becomes quite a bore....I was quite disappointed. I love adventure films, and this one threw in some UFO plot into it, but as it went on i was having a really hard time staying awake. The picture quality was also bad, like a muddled copy from an old VHS transfer to DVD but none the less watchable...however, even if the picture quality was better, it wouldn't make this movie any better...

Pass up on this picture. A better film would be the Allan Quartermain films...much, much better!
