Storyline

British army veteran Ed Stafford (33) takes off enough time to walk the entire length of the mighty Amazon from its Andes springs to its Atlantic mouth. Although a seasoned veteran, his mate Lyle Collier soon gives up. Ed soldiers on, despite innumerable challenges from wildlife and people, including native tribes and drug cartel scum, even after his Indian guide Ozwaldo deserts in the Red Zone. After having serious health problems nursed in a jungle infirmary, he again stumbles on against reason, suffering a total of two and a half years. Written by KGF Vissers

Not worth watching unless you are into soap-opera drama.
28 September 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When i saw the title and description of this documentary i thought it would be awesome: A documentary about people walking the entire length of a famous river. But alas, this was not the nature/anthropology-focused documentary i had hoped for but the story of egomaniac white jackasses carried through the jungle by their local guides. The camera firmly aimed at the constant childish bickering instead of the beautiful landscape or the exotic villages they come across. If this is the stuff English soldiers are made off i now understand why the English empire has crumbled: pretending to be badass while the locals make fun of your cluelessnes and your total lack of preparation.
