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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Bullock March 26, 2011
By NR Hawk
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!!! January 4, 2011
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars CORMAN PLUS BULLOCK? July 4, 2012
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed January 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept my interest March 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A nightmare on the Amazon. July 4, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can see why I heard Sandra Bullock tried to have this movie pulled from the shelves. This movie was not Sandra Bullock. I bought this movie because Sandy was in it, boy if only I could get my money back. You have to see it, we can save our rain forests, but not that way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Early on December 16, 2013
By liznem
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This must have been one of Sandra Bullock's early movies. She is good in anything she plays. It had a good plot and was probably realistic. I'm just not that fond of explicit sex.

Interesting story made in the early 90s, recorded in Iquitos City - Peru although they mention Bolivia in the movie. I lived in Iquitos at the time the movie was made. Read more
