"The Man Who Swam the Amazon" is true action at its best. World record marathon swimmer Martin Strel has conquered most of the major rivers of the world, but this is exceptional. The Amazon conceals deadly creatures within and along its banks. Hear the howl of the jungle, cheering throngs and the frightening hum of a boat motor in dead of night when pirates or drug runners come too close for comfort. It's a thrill ride all the way.
