Unoriginal and Stupid
3 December 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In New York, the college student Justine (Lorenza Izzo) joins a group of activists led by Alejandro (Ariel Levy) and he invites her to travel to Peru to protest against a timber industry that is destroying the Amazon rain forest. The group uses their cellphones to film the destruction and send the footages through Internet. Alejandro uses Justine that is almost killed by one security guard to succeed in his intent of calling attention of audiences. When the group is returning to civilization, the plane blows-up and crashes into the forest. Soon the survivors discover that they are not alone and they are abduct by a tribe of Indians. But their nightmare becomes worse when they realize that the Indians are cannibals.

"The Green Inferno" is an unoriginal and stupid film of cannibals by Eli Roth. The story is not well-written and Justine joining the group of activists is totally unconvincing. The conclusion is awful. There are at least two better movies about cannibals: "Cannibal Holocaust" is extremely realistic, disturbing, cruel and sick, and Eli Roth did not dare to depict such violence; and "Cannibal Ferox" that is also realistic and cruel. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Canibais" ("Cannibals")
