Guys, trust me, the scant piece of Bullock booty that you get to see really isn't worth all the effort.

Audience Reviews for Fire On The Amazon (Lost Paradise)

½

Really rather slow and not that interesting to be honest. Seeing it was made in '91 I have to say the picture quality is very poor and even the dubbing is out of sync. It could have been better on a bigger scale, but it will be better known for a nude scene for Sandra Bullock in an early role for her.

This movie was one of Sandra Bullock's early movies. The theme of the movie was that the local people were trying to prevent the destruction of the rain forest. The story was set in a Spanish speaking South American country and I think they said it was Bolivia. However the Amazon is in Brazil. The vast majority of the world's rain forests are in Brazil. The language of Brazil is Portuguese. The main character in the movie is an American Photo-Journalist who keeps taking pictures of everything he sees. The catch to draw you in to see the movie is a semi-nude scene of Sandra Bullock. Although she's nude she's always in a position that you can't see any private parts. The natives of this Spanish speaking country all seem to be able to speak English. At the end of the movie they put up a statement that 70,000 acres of rainforest are destroyed every day. This movie was made back when saving the rainforest was the cause of the day. Now they're claiming that the rainforest prevents global warming. The people who make these claims don't know the difference between jungle and rainforest. There is a rainforest in the state of Washington. It's a national park and nobody is destroying it. They also don't mention that for every acre cut down 50 acres grow back.

I found this to be a very slow moving boring movie. And I love Sandra Bullock. But she even admits it was a bad movie.
