No matter the potency of Lars' Peruvian cannabis, not enough was administered to Amy's corpse to inebriate the entire cannibal tribe after she is cooked. Also the right amount of cannabis would not have caused the watch platform tribesman to pass off the platform, considering that he had not ingested a single piece of her. See more »

In Singapore, the film was edited before it could be approved for release with an R21 rating. The distributor was made to remove an instance of strong graphic violence which the board felt was gratuitous; the scene in question occurs as the natives hold a man down and torture him cracking open his skull, removing his tongue and limbs, gouging his eyes out and severing his limbs. Without these cuts the film would have been refused classification. See more »
In New York, the college student Justine (Lorenza Izzo) joins a group of activists led by Alejandro (Ariel Levy) and he invites her to travel to Peru to protest against a timber industry that is destroying the Amazon rain forest. The group uses their cellphones to film the destruction and send the footages through Internet. Alejandro uses Justine that is almost killed by one security guard to succeed in his intent of calling attention of audiences. When the group is returning to civilization, the plane blows-up and crashes into the forest. Soon the survivors discover that they are not alone and they are abduct by a tribe of Indians. But their nightmare becomes worse when they realize that the Indians are cannibals.
"The Green Inferno" is an unoriginal and stupid film of cannibals by Eli Roth. The story is not well-written and Justine joining the group of activists is totally unconvincing. The conclusion is awful. There are at least two better movies about cannibals: "Cannibal Holocaust" is extremely realistic, disturbing, cruel and sick, and Eli Roth did not dare to depict such violence; and "Cannibal Ferox" that is also realistic and cruel. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Canibais" ("Cannibals")
