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

Actors Bruce Davison and James Brolin actually crossed the very narrow and wobbly rope footbridge (with safety harnesses) that is suspended across a two hundred foot deep gorge that is seen in one of the movie's action sequences. However, stunt doubles took over for when the two fall off the bridge when it collapses. See more »

I'll never forget taking a chance on this sleeper featured on a double-bill with some chop-sockey movie!
31 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely love this film! Whenever I have theatre nachos (which is not often) I think back to 20 years ago when I fell in love with this forgotten gem at the Meridian Quad theatre in San Jose. That's what I ate during the film. They went together perfectly. I had the original one-sheet poster hanging on my wall for awhile. Many people who saw the poster had no idea this film even existed. If it ever comes out on DVD, I'll purchase it. Anthony Quinn was priceless as the bandit Mariano; and Borgnine's one scene is a classic! I recommend it to anyone looking for a genuine diamond-in-the-rough eighties film! Just terrific!
