Storyline

Four American friends, badly needing money, decide to make a commando-like raid into a South American country and steal $5 million from the hacienda of an American-born drug dealer who lives there. The four Americans then succeed rather easily in stealing the money, but soon run into trouble trying to get back out of the country, as both the drug dealer and a small army of bandits each hunt them down trying to get the money.

Trivia

Director Stewart Raffill once said of working with actor James Coburn on this movie that Coburn was "one of the most interesting people I've ever met. He was terribly beat up with arthritis at the time and had to be lifted onto a horse for the movie. But he was interested in all sorts of esoteric philosophies and things." See more »

I actually saw this indie gem in a theater!
21 July 1999 | by SquirePMSee all my reviews

Talk about an independently produced film! This one's a wonderful example of how hard the indies work, and what good movies they make.

How they ever convinced a cast like this to go sweat it out in a jungle, I can't imagine. James Brolin shines, but so do they all.

And I still can't believe they got somebody to handle a snake that BIG just for a 5-second shot, which you better believe they captured in one perfect take, 'cause that snake was headed for home the instant they released it!

This is a fine, light hearted action film, fast paced, well written and plotted and with a lot of depth. Each actor obviously got way into his role, especially Anthony Quinn. And those whacko airplane pilots! The old C-47 STILL RULES!!!
