Very moving and realistic movie, touched on all the senses
23 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie deserves top billing alongside the multi-million dollar Hollywood movies. I felt every emotion during the movie. At times, the visual and sound effects were so real, I felt like I was in the jungle in the middle of the action. This movie had my complete attention from the very beginning. The visual and sound effects were of the highest quality. The movie was filmed in Columbia, but with Hollywood-like quality. The actors are mostly unknowns, but their performance in the movie was extraordinary.

I applaud the director, Rafael Lara, the actors, and film crew for putting together a fantastic movie. I hope to see it in the mainstream movie theaters in the near future.
