ok I suppose-nothing special
6 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

About an American aid worker who crosses into Cambodia from Thailand, as part of a medicine for gold deal. If you overlook a few obvious flaws,then this movie isn't too bad. By this I mean that the guy crosses the border and enters the jungle which is deep in warlord and Khmer Rouge occupied territory, and comes out unscathed. Added to this are some pretty unbelieveable and laughable situations, such as when the Dr. (Martin Sheen) warns him at the border of some suspicious looking flowers,which this guy immediately spots.After shooting one, so that the "flower"explodes safely, he has no more problems! And hey presto, he continues on his way. Also the Khmer Rouge leader speaks perfect English? & possesses an impressive knowlege of American culture,eg. Elvis. After escaping the guerrillas PERFECTLY UNHARMED, he also somehow manages to avoid being hit by a guy who drops bombs on him from a plane. On the plus side, Haing S. Ngor gives an ok portrayal of the Cambodian refuge now living in Thailand, but somehow you can't but notice that he already played this role, and much better, ie. in The Killing Fields.Vic Diaz likewise was believable, as the fearsome and menacing opium smoking warlord, Colonel Shan. Just try to accept the unrealistic, Ramboesque type nonsense and this movie will pass as a time killer.
