This movie is a mess! It takes from so many past films and creates a film which is clinch ridden. The main character is a mixture of Tom Sawyer (Look Ma, no shoes!), Tarzan (he speaks to tigers), Rambo (jungle warfare expert who uses nature to defeat well-armed opponents) and Clint Eastwood in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (starring and squinting). The bad guys are stereotypes of characters right out of Deliverence, The Road, and Rolling Thunder. The story plot is so stupid that it is really hard to believe; a gang of killers who are working for an unnamed boss, attempt to steal land composing of two wooden shacks in the dense jungle with no one around for miles. The hero keeps removing his shirt,yet wears a hippie style leather necklace and has a strange looking tattoo on his back which looks like an ocean wave. Also, ninety percent of the dialogue consists if heavy breathing and moaning. All the characters are flat and stiff. There is no chemistry what so ever between any of them. They just like and stare, and wear filthy dirty clothes and never shower. This movie is a real stinker. I only gave it a four because the photography is beautiful and I liked the stupid showdown at the end.
