Storyline

Here's a National Geographic style documentary that's alternately exploitive and informative. The film presents a wide variety of ways that humans interact with nature. It depicts the actual footage of a careless man (Pit Dernitz) leaving the safety of his car to film lions close up and ends up being their dinner. Other highlights include natives humping the ground in hopes of bringing life to the land, various big game hunting and last but not least naked hippies. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

The scene involving the hired guns torturing and killing indigenous South American tribes is staged. The lion attack sequence is also under suspicion as to being staged, but it has not been proven. See more »

Goofs

When the native man is shot by the mercenaries, he is shot in the back but falls backwards, moving against the laws of physics. This is one aspect that proves the scene is a phony. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [directly before lions attack a tourist] This sequence is part of the evidence examined by the court in a lawsuit brought by the heirs of the victim against an insurance company.

Human Death Yeah Right Don't Be Fooled
10 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Guys let's not get carried away here! There are no human death scenes in this, or any Faces of Death for that matter. It's all staged, and all psychological.

They show you a dead body in a morgue,or real animals getting brutally killed. Then show you a guy getting shot by executioners (not in this film,in one of the Faces of Death and I'm just using as an example only),a guy hit by a train, or a guy mauled by lions. Because you saw the real dead body you think every thing else is real. People see these films usually very young, and grow up believing they are real. They are not. There is no debate as others here have stated.

However if you have never seen one of these film, think very long and hard about how much you really do. Even though the human deaths are fake these films are still very unsettling, and you can not unwatch it. It will be with you for the rest of your life, and you will be affected by them.
