    This is what happens when the Amazon forest is destroyed

    Another of John Boorman. His son Charlie Boorman is amazing as the lost son of an architect that is stolen by a hidden Amazon trible. Great movie and great story with amazing graphics and intrigue.

    There was this quiet and more cohesive film from John Boorman long before the mediocre pastiche and box office sensation of "Avatar". Adventure and drama set in the amazonia, following the lines of Ford's "The Searchers" but adding an ecological denounce that does not fall in preachment, but remains powerful. Cinematography is breathtaking.

    I was blown away by the beauty of the Amazon as depicted in this movie. Excellent performance from Powers Booth as a father looking for his son, Tommy, who was abducted by the people of the jungle at an early age.
