Editorial Reviews

A photojournalist and an environmental activist join forces in a risky murder investigation of a famous environmentalist deep in the hot and steamy Amazonian jungle. Made in 1993, Fire On The Amazon sat on shelves for years before being released, a move that immediately made the film a cult classic and showcased the talent of a young Sandra Bullock.

Even though Fire on the Amazon and Sandra Bullock in particular got panned pretty badly by some other other reviewers I bought it anyway and I am glad I did. I thought the story was well thought out and Ms Bullocks performance gave a very good indication of just how good an actress she would later become. Besides, it's good to keep in mind that we are all new to the job at some point in our lives.

Sandra Bullock is good in anything she does - good movie for acting and content. Interesting because it highlights what we are doing to destroy the world we live in. Also kept my attention during the entire movie. I get bored easily and often don't make it through some movie as they lose my interest. Good movie and I highly recommend it.

It is a miracle Sandra Bullock got any work after this film at all. She was absolutely lousy with some of the worse lines imaginable. Craig Sheffer plays an obnoxious reporter who has his camera in everyone's face while Bullock is an activist attempting to save the rain forest. One of the protest leaders is killed and the story becomes a very bad who-dun-it. I kept hoping for Sheffer to die, but alas that was not the case.

The sole attraction of this film is the love scene between Bullock and Sheffer where she shows more skin than usual, with strategic spots missing the camera so as to not technically classify it as a nude scene per se. It is a bad ecology film, lousy drama, and worse murder mystery. Heck, it is not even good soft core.

This is for die hard Bullock fans or Bullock stalkers.

Everyone else: Avoid Avoid Avoid.

A terrible movie, a complete waste of film. Amatuerish photography, some of the worst film scoring in the history of cinema, one dimensional annoying characters, a script that never rings true. I like Sandra Bullock movies, but this is a dog with fleas. If I could give it a rating lower that one I would.

There is only one movie that Sandra Bullock ever made that I did not like and that is the Blind Side (I know, shocking, I am probably one of a group that did not like it--maybe even less)*. Well, that was until now....what in the world was Sandra thinking when she made this movie? Was it supposed to be this bad? As bad as the script was, could they have least cast a much hotter (more masculine acting) guy in the lead role opposite Sandra? At least it would be an okay movie to see her hook up romantically with someone that was worth her beauty.
*Disclaimer about Blind Side: loved the movie, the message, and Sandra's acting....I do not like the person that she portrayed. I think Leigh Ann Tuohy is an arrogant, publicity seeking person and exploited this "great act of kindness" in order to obtain some noteriety. I think a servant's heart should be a quiet heart.

I was disappointed that this video has been modified by deleting scenes from the original movie. I own the original VHS tape so I know the original movie.

This movie kept my interest from beginning to end. Perhaps the character of Alyssa was not the best one for Bullock because we have a paradigm of her as a strong forceful woman. In this movie, she played a softer more innocent part. She followed the director's directions, and did her job well. It seemed to me that the director ran a tight ship. I can see it from the tone and cadence of Bullock's voice, to the way she moved. The love making scene was also tightly directed I noticed by the way they kissed and moved. At any rate, the movie was a good watch for me, even though I prefer the "stronger woman" persona that Bullock portrays within her other movies.

The only reason I watched this movie was because Sandra Bullock was in it. The premise of the story didn't really appeal to me, but it actually turned out a lot better than I was expecting. The conflict between corporations and environmentalists is definitely timely these days. Not the greatest movie I ever saw, but I've seen a lot worse. It was worth two hours of my time. If you're a Sandra Bullock fan I think you would probably like it, but it's definitely not her best work. Amazon said this movie was from 2000, but when I checked IMDB afterwards, it said 1993.
