Movie Reviews

Candidate For Worst Movie Ever Made
Alan Tucker, | Miami, FL USA | 03/02/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is a badly made and badly acted movie that plays fast and loose with reality. Although the Fujimori regime was far from angelic the fascist-type depiction of the goverment in this movie is a distortion of reality. Also, one must realize the Tupac Amaro and the Sendero Luminoso were terrorist groups responsible for the murder of thousands of Peruvians. Having lived in Peru during the Fujimori regime, he was considered a hero by most Peruvians who hated the violence and murder committed by the terrorist groups portrayed in this movie. In conclusion, count this movie as another Hollywood distortion of reality, badly made, badly acted, and best left for the garbage can of badly made movies."
This movie deserves 0 stars!!!

"Terrible acting... I mean really bad and mediocre... I was born in Peru and like many other Peruvians I despised terrorists that drown our country in the most absolut poverty, they were not rebels, they were filthy terrorists... and killed innocent people in the name of the revolution... give a brake!!! who ever came up with this stupid story didn't know that out of the 35,000 people that this terrorist groups killed 95 percent were innocent families, children, women ,men and hard working people.... Fujimori could have not been a saint either but you can't compare... he was loved by the poor ones... he was propably the first president in decades in Peruvian history that did something to improve their standard of living... Of course this movie is pre-911, I wonder if they would have dared to do it afterwards, since they accused the CIA and US to be against the revolution and helping Fujimori to get rid of "innocent and idealistic rebels" ...In other words don't spend your money or time in this junk!!!"

"This movie, that was not even filmed in Peru, is pro-terrorist. The MRTA and the shining path killed thousands of peruvians...This movie has also bad actors...and bad action...thanks god I was able to return the movie and get a refund.
