This is a slick jungle adventure that was first offered to Wes Craven but was given to Ruggero Deodato to direct.
The producers wanted a Cannibal Holocaust 2 and it shows with several scenes that is not for the squeamish but looking beyond that this is a big budget 80's horror/action adventure that boasts several standout performances and an outstanding score from Claudio Simonetti.
Given his brief screen time Richard Lynch gives a weird understated performance that was something out of Colonel Kurtz from Apocolypse Now.
Who also stands out even though he is given even less time than Lynch is Michael Berryman who has to be given the honour of having the greatest screen entrances of all time!! You have to see to believe!!!
Lastly was lifts right up above the rest is the pounding score by Simonetti, it creates the right mood for a jungle setting and switches pace with that of the movie. If anybody wants to know what the role of a score is, just watch this film.
Although this film does suffer from conflicting plot lines and confused genre direction, it is still a great film that is worth seeing.
