Where's Lenzi when you need him?
7 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Wannabe explorer Luis Escobar (Richard Romanus) joins adventurer Tom Jensen (Bo Svenson) on a trip to South America in search of the fabled seven cities of El Dorado, a journey that leads to encounters with a tribe of Amazonian women and savage headhunters. Also searching for the legendary golden cities is wicked drug baron Clarence Blasko (Donald Pleasance), who will do anything to claim his prize.

If this film had been made by Umberto Lenzi, Jess Franco or Sergio Martino, it would have been chock full of the nudity and violence that guaranteed such films notoriety during the video era. Unfortunately, this isn't a trashy Euro flick, but rather a cheesy US made-for-TV movie, and as such only offers tepid thrills for fans of the jungle adventure genre. Director Mark L. Lester is capable of turning out an entertaining film when given the chance (Class of 1984, Commando and Showdown in Little Tokyo), but constrained by the limitations of a TV budget and broadcasting regulations, he is unable to deliver the goods, his film a lacklustre romp that wastes a fairly decent cast, which also includes Anita Ekberg (Fellini's La Dolce Vita) as Amazonian queen Na-Eela.

Silliest moments include a rubber snake leaping out of Tom's suitcase, a supposedly funny scene in which a chief offers his fat wife to the adventurer, and Tom and Luis being kept in man-cage and forced to have sex with the Amazonians in true 'Carry On Up The Jungle' style.
