Movie Review: Wow! What a s****y movie this was! I gave this movie a try because I liked Steve Carver's Lone Wolf McQuade and An Eye For An Eye but this is god awful. What ultimately ruined this movie was the pacing and conception. Slow and retarded. And it doesn't matter who was in this film; you could put every A list actor in this and it wouldn't save this s***hole. What an embarrassment this was and I watched it alone. Ugh! Not recommended.
Conclusion: 4 stars for the Blu Ray and 1 1/2 stars for River Of Death.
This was the kinda Drive-in movie I loved as a teen. Colorful, and a surprisingly affordable budget. Hard to tell which had more twists though, the plot or the River of Death itself. But, the entertainment factor was high throughout. This 1989 sleeper features a dozen, or more, different wild Amazon tribes, some more cannibalistic than others, in some truly gritty moments including a great cook-em-up, eat-em-up scene, around the ol' camp fire. Ya got Nazis, mad doctors, psycho frauleins hell-bent on revenge, an impassioned hero whose a 2-bit Indiana Jones with a cheap private-eye narrative and an even cheaper Duran Duran haircut, mysticism, make-up galore, disease right outta Ben-Hur, characters who suddenly fall out of the script for no apparent reason and a really cool stone tiki fortress in a deep, deep jungle's "Lost City"....what's not to love. Mondo Cheap Thrills.
