Was not happy they let Sandra Bullock's character be killed.

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.

Corrupt officials crusading photographer, assassination of local treehugger an early effort from Sandra Bullock that deserves its bargain bin status.

This Roger Corman joint has all the low budget downfalls you'd expect. Coming one year before Sandra Bullock's big rise to fame for her role in the film Speed, Fire on the Amazon is really known for one thing and one thing only, Sandra Bullock's "steamy" love scene. Without it, this eco-political thriller about the rain forests probably would have been forgotten long ago.

Not worth watching at all, unless you are a big Sandra Bullock fan. The movie is the definition of bad.

Awful in every way with the worse acted dying scene ever in cinema. Great to see just how far Sandy has come. Although she's probably the best thing in it, she ain't good! Bad acting, bad story, bad everything.

This is a disapointing movie over all. The only thing in this movie worth watching is Sandra Bullock's only nude sceen in any of her many movies. This sceen is strange at times and border line X rated. This movie is only for hard core Sandra Bullock fans.

An early one from Sandra Bullock that quiet clearly wants to be seen as a serious 'issue' film but is little more than a TV movie that someone is trying to make some money off given its stars recent Oscar triumph.

Too boring to watch. I turned it off after 10 minutes, it's just too uninteresting, a waste of time.

Muhahaha. It was so nice to watch this movie with young Sandra Bullock. Movie is not worst, but almost trash. Only reason to watch this movie - is to see play of Sandra i guess.

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.

Ewww, this movie was so bad. I don't remember much except there was a section in the middle that was like really bad amateur porn.

The plot was all right, the casting/acting could have been better. The sex scene was decent, but not worth it unless you've got a serious fetish for either participant or you really care about the desecration of the rain-forest.

I enjoyed this movie by a young Sandra Bullock, had good scenes of the Amazonian creatures in the beginning and though the plot was simple, it was quite gripping. But the heroine did not make it .... ;-(
