Storyline

General Romero, leader of a small Latin American country, is showing the UN how he's taking care of his country's drug problems by publicly burning crops of marijuana. As soon as the inspectors leave, however, Romero quickly returns to business, producing and shipping the illegal crop. When his right-hand man is convinced by a crusading reporter to turn away from his life of crime and help bring his boss to justice, Romero vows to stop at nothing to prevent this traitor from talking.

Dull Times in South America
1 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The uninspiring story of a Latin American General who has a firm grip on his country. He is involved in drug trafficking while he poses as a positive influence in the United Nations. A young woman journalist goes down there at great risk. There's lots of driving around in the jungles, many armed mercenaries. Very formidable forces working away to protect the drug trade. She works the General's associate in an effort to institute change. It's all so random and unbelievable. These are nasty guys. There should have been no infiltration at all. Too many narrow escapes and carelessness on the parts of these evil people to make it palatable. There are so many movies like this where much of the time spent with cars storming around, people firing automatic weapons, and the plot going nowhere. They don't get much more forgettable.
