During casting it was difficult to find a pilot in the Screen Actor's Guild qualified and willing to fly the 1947 Piper plane in the jungle. For the movie the plane ended up being piloted by the real life Steve Saint. See more »


In one scene, the rope connected to the bucket suspended from the airplane is cut with a knife by a person in the plane. In the very next shot, the rope is still connected to the plane. See more »

I was not expecting much but WHAT A Surprise
21 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was very skeptical going to this moving because most films like this are usually a feeble attempt at evangelism at best. But because I'm a movie freak and I prefer not to be accused of uninformed criticism I went.

The story was captivating, produced with excellence and the acting believable. It was good enough to insight laughter, tears and cheers.

It was difficult to predict what may happened next and in the end one came away with a sense of understanding of those who live in what seems like another world and how much alike we really are when all is said and done. The tape that ran during the credits showing the actual people who the film was made about was an excellent end to an otherwise very emotional ending and allowed those to leave the theatre with a smile on their faces rather than tears running down.

I'd like to see it again with out getting all emotional this time as I believe I missed a lot.

Watch out Mel Gibson :-)
