Storyline

In Bolivia's Amazon basin, corporate cattle ranches are replacing the rain forest. When Santos, charismatic leader of the union of rubber tappers, forges an alliance with Indians to protest deforestation, he is assassinated. O'Brien, a US photo-journalist who has no skills as an investigator, wants a story when he thinks the police have framed and murdered an innocent Indian as the assassin. In his search for the truth, he involves Lysa Rothman, who worked for Santos and with whom he falls in love. As he gets deeper into trouble with the cops and the real assassin, he not only needs Lysa's help but that of the Indians' leader. How many will die so O'Brien can get his story?

14 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK. So this I have watched the movie 2x. Im not gonna say it was a great movie, but it wasn't totally horrible. the ending made me cry. If you aren't a Sandra Bullock fan then I suggest you don't watch it. But if you are a true Sandra Bullock fan then watch it. It is always interesting seeing the work that was done before they hit it big. Fire on the Amazon does have a storyline if you pay attention to it. I mean Im only 17 and see things and understand things then a lot of the adults I know. Basically if you like Sandra Bullock watch the movie. The movie may not be the greatest but it is worth watching. Many people don't like this movie but personally I don't hate it. There is one scene in it that is shocking if you have seen a lot of Sandra's movies. It is kinda awkward if you watch it with your family. So I warn you ahead of time to be prepared for it.
