Movie Info

Set in 1985, war photographer Avery Taggert (Zoë Bell) has built a solid career with her stark and honest imagery, all the while remaining emotionally distant from her subjects. When she embeds in the jungles of Colombia with a squad of missionaries led by a beloved and charismatic Spaniard known as "El Guero" (Nacho Vigalondo), she finds herself in the middle of a conflict as violent as any she's photographed. One night, she happens upon El Guero committing a heinous atrocity, capturing the vile act on film, an image with the potential to discredit and destroy El Guero. Knowing this brilliant psychopath will employ every tactic at his disposal to destroy that photograph - and the photographer who took it - Avery flees into the harsh jungle with nothing but the camera hanging around her neck to escape from missionaries twisted into violent guerrillas by the madman intent on destroying all enemies.

Critic Reviews for Camino

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

A competent but unmemorable B-movie that eschews any real political content in favor of simple, brutal survival melodrama with scant room for surprises in plot, character or directorial style.

[Bell's] anticipated hand-to-hand encounters are ultimately beaten into submission by an irritating atonal score that constantly drowns any trace of nuance under an onslaught of shrill electronic sludge.

The real downfall of Camino is its script, which screenwriter Daniel Noah says was written into two days-and it shows.

A lackluster cat-and-mouse game.

It's worth watching for Bell's performance and some well-choreographed fight sequences, but you probably won't remember it a week after seeing it.

While it definitely could have benefitted by being about 15 minutes shorter, Camino is an admirable effort from director and co-writer Josh C. Waller, who effectively ratchets up the tension throughout his savage thriller to an almost frenetic pace.
