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

This movie's director Stewart Raffill once said of this picture: "There's a lot of fun and light moments in 'High Risk'. I see the film being in the 'Butch Cassidy' mold. There's humor, but the dangers, and the bullets, are real. Our heroes are not really competent enough to do what they do. They're working class guys who gamble their all on a chance to make it rich, and as such, I feel that they will be that much more easily identifiable to out audiences. They are simply doing what we would all like to do - have an adventure that would make our dreams become reality." See more »
