Comments: This is a dirty movie. If I was a movie star I wouldn't want to make a movie where I had to get so dirty. I'd make Rom-Coms where I could stay clean and good looking and fall in love after some hurdles

Lots of tension here, but it's unrealistic. I had to make frequent trips to the auto shop and have my disbelief re-suspended. The ending is so sad it pissed me off, but the several minutes leading up to it, the "Where am I going" montage kind of thing, is top tier cinema

Being a man in the 1970s was a choice

Summary: Four unfortunate men from different parts of the globe agree to risk their lives transporting gallons of nitroglycerin across dangerous Latin American jungle.
