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.

"Fire on the Amazon" was a major disappointment...
With Sandra Bullock ("Speed", "The Net") and Craig Sheffer ("Fire in the Sky") in an Amazon rainforest setting, I was sure "Fire on the Amazon" was going to be a keeper to add to my collection of favorite films. Unfortunately, I was dead wrong and extremely disappointed!
The plot starts out with our "reporter" (Sheffer) meeting Bullock working with a Sierra Club type of environmental group in a nameless South American country. The character of our "reporter" fluctuates from "don't give a damn" about the rainforest, to suddenly demanding to venture into the rain forest with Bullock in a dugout canoe to determine if an Indian was murdered by the police.
The entire plot is weak, and the excuses for plot development are not at all credible. Character development is thin, as there is really no strong chemistry between Bullock and Sheffer - the cliche animosity towards each other at the beginning of the film is weak and not developed, and there is little or no excuse for them to team up in the middle of the film. And there is no character development or warming up towards each other as the film progresses. Suddenly there is the requisite cliche "love" scene for no reason at all (let's just call it a "skin and sex" scene with no feelings), which is so poorly edited that there is no continuity at all (some scenes mostly nude, with other partially clad scenes edited in, all with no sense of flow, buildup, or climax.

The only positive thing I can say about this film is that it is only 78 minutes long. I was inspired to rent it after the morning TV news reported it's release and how Sandra Bullock allegedly tried to block it because of a nude scene. Well, I would say she tried to block its release because it is so embarassingly awful. I have seen better student films. The dialog is so bad at times it makes you laugh. The male lead (a photo journalist) take so many pictures of everything it is comical right out of a Saturday Night Live skit. He even holds out his camera to take a picture of himself while he is being held in a choke hold with a knife to his throat. As for the nude scene, it is just a series of headshots and hair flips barely enough to justify an R rating (no T&A). The plot is so weak it makes you wonder how they are going to end it as you check your watch to see how much time is left. Don't waste your time with this one...

This is an awful movie. No plot, terrible acting (even by Ms. Bullock, who is one of my favorite actors), and even bad lighting and camera angles on the one scene you're probably getting this movie to see. The two stars are simply because this is the first and probably only film in which Sandra is actually buck naked-- not that you can really see anything of substance, but it's a novelty when an A-lister like Sandra takes it all off. If owning her one and only skin flick is your goal, buy it. Otherwise, just admire her beauty fully clothed in one of her good movies.

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.

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.

This movie was somewhat of a disappointment. From watching it, I really thought it was an older movie not one that was recently released. The story didn't catch my interest. The plot was developed enough and the quality of the film was poor.I watched it mainly because of Sandra Bullock, I've loved all her films so far, but this one is nothing like any of her others. I wonder what made her do it. It is so unlike her and the movie surely didn't measure up to her usual standard.
I definitely didn't think it was a worthy film and I didn't even get through most of it. It just wasn't gripping enough to keep me watching to the end.

I rented this movie becuase I thought it would be interesting just because Sandra Bullock was in it. I am so happy that I onlty spent 3 bucks on it becuase the movie is a waste of time. I fast forwarded throughout the whole thing and still didn't get to the end. It dragged on and on, the acting seemed poor (even sandra's) which really surprised me. The quality of the film was low and that wouldn't have made a difference if there was a good plot line. I was so dissapointed and coulnd't belive this was a Sandra Bullock movie. I also couldn't believe that she was nude in the film. After having the girl next door image for so long, I couldn't believe the sex scene. It showed her having sex from behind. Sandra! That's probably the only thing that may persuade you to buy it, but other than that this is the worst film i have seen in a long long time. I cannot emphasize that enough. I rented Frequency too, and that one is a good buy or rental.
