I went into this film thinking it would be a Danish Indiana Jones. Well, it wasn't. I'm not a big fan of adventure films, but I do like to watch one from time to time. This one seemed interesting and the main premise kinda intriguing, even though quite unrealistic.
It's a good comedy adventure film, but it's not your typical family-friendly entertainment. Some parts of it were rather dark and in some places even brutal (there's torture, killings, and plenty of blood). On more than one occasion I thought to myself there was no way the main characters would survive that (and in real life they wouldn't), but then again it's a film, so some suspension of disbelief is necessary.
It was very well acted, the actors did a really good job and it was nice to see Matthias Hues again. If you're into jungle adventure films, give it a try. Just bare in mind that some parts may be disturbing for younger audiences.
