According to Ruggero Deodato, actor Willie Aames was difficult to work with, claiming Aames was going through personal problems and eventually destroyed a hotel room during production. See more »
During the intro titles as the camera is following the woman holding the baby, as she steps onto an escalator there is a man behind her wearing a grey T-shirt who is carrying a shoulder bag with a red strap. However as the camera shot changes to show her getting off at the end, the man is suddenly now in front and can be seen stepping off and walking ahead of her. See more »
There were 2 different versions of this film made for different markets. The first version was a straight forward action film, which was made for the US market (to get an R certificate) and for countries like the UK where censorship restrictions where problematic. However the director filmed several additional extra gory scenes for use in Italy, Japan and other countries that demanded a "stronger" version. These included alternate takes on the intro fight scene, the drug house massacre and the raid on the jungle camp, which featured additional violence nudity and gore. The US DVD by Anchor Bay is of the extra gory version, however the extra gore scenes are presented in Italian language with English sub-titles. They claim that the the extra-gory version was never dubbed into English (actually the whole film was primarily shot in English in "live" sound recording), however the Hong Kong VCD of this version was presented in English, indicating that full English language prints of this version did exist.

Fine action film from Italian Ruggero Deodato that features a great cast of American stars - well you know what I mean when I say stars. I was fortunate enough to see the uncut version under the title AMAZONIA LA JUNGLE BLANCHE - although it was in French with no subtitles, I still enjoyed it though. Claudio Simonetti's bombastic score is a real treat and needs a CD release. Look out for the Anchor Bay DVD release due out sometime in 2002 - Uncut and Widescreen with an interview with good old Ruggero.
