It has it's moments.......not a great film, but good 80's style corny fun!
13 September 2004 | by Freddy_LevitSee all my reviews

For those who liked films such as Jewel Of The Nile and The Gods Must Be Crazy, then this is for you.... It has a corny and a great 80's feel to it. You do feel like your on an Adventure, but it never quite reaches its potential for a great film. The premise is good, but the dialog and acting are just sooo poor that it makes you laugh. I don't consider it a classic, but it is a great film to watch on like a rainy Saturday afternoon!!! Now, this movie was made on the cheap - a budget close to nothing when compared to superior films such as the Indiana Jones films, but try not t o take this film so seriously and the film is just plain fun to watch (after a while, you forget about the cheesy acting and dialog).....oh and how could I forget - Kelly London is one of the hottest women I have ever seen (I lusted for her in every scene). Her beauty alone brings so much to the film. Speaking of beauty, I loved the cinematography as well. Aside from that, the music sets the mood pretty well for the whole film too!

In my opinion, this film is fun to watch - mostly because it reminds me just how great the 80's were and my childhood.....and I am a fanatic on Adventure!

Besides, the South American landscape is the ultimate premise for an Adventure film.....

I give this film 6/10 (3 for Kelly London, 1 for the music and 2 for the cinematography)!
