The troops guarding Manteuffel's lab at the beginning of the film are improperly uniformed. They wear the Nazi party swastika armbands although they are clearly wearing Wehrmacht army uniforms. The armband was only work by SS troops and Nazi officials and, by this point in the war, only with full dress uniforms and not in the field. See more »
Michael Dudikoff plays a freelance guide Hamilton, an expert in jungle expedition. While guiding a doctor and his daughter into the deep dangerous jungles of the Amazon, the doctor is killed and the daughter captured by indigenous primitive tribe of the mythical Lost City.
Barely escaping death, Hamilton manages to return to the outpost of the Amazon basin and report the incident to the chief police. The chief police warns him not to return to the jungle but Hamilton adamantly tries to find other ways to return and rescue the kidnapped doctor's daughter.
As fate would have it, he looks for his associate, an ex-WW II pilot who then introduces him to a wealthy businessman and his friends who want Hamilton to lead their journey into the Lost City. Hamilton accepts their offer after striking a lucrative deal.
With an addition of several vested interests tagging along, Hamilton heads back into the perilous Amazon jungles to search for the Lost City and rescue his dead client's daughter.
Based on Alistair MacLean's novel, this adventure film fails to keep audience interested much less thrilled. Regardless of the time you watch it, you will doze off halfway through the film or keep wanting to check the remaining run time on the screen. This is worth watching only for Dudikoff's die-hard fans.
Try watching River of Death in one sitting if you are experiencing sleepless nights. It may be an effective method of sleep therapy.
