Movie Reviews

Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 03/14/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Considering the wonderful masterpieces Jules Verne gave us, it's hard to believe that this dull and lifeless movie is based on a novel he wrote. At any rate, 800 LEAGUES DOWN THE AMAZON is so poorly scripted, edited, acted and directed, I'm sure the actors involved don't include this on their resumes! Barry Bostwick plays a wealthy plantation owner who has a deep dark secret which bounty hunter Adam Baldwin stumbles upon. Bostwick also has a daughter (Daphne Zuniga in a horrible Hayley Mills impersonation) who has just accepted a marriage proposal from kindly doctor Tom Verica (American Dreams). Only problem is he wants to be married further down the Amazon because his mother is sick and wouldn't be able to come to the plantation for the wedding. So Bostwick builds this incredibly overwrought boat replete with piano, tables, etc, and they head down the Amazon. Of course, nasty Baldwin worms his way on board and blackmails Bostwick wanting not only money but his daughter's hand in marriage. They encounter arrow wielding natives, who look like they're all of 10 years old; piranhas that look amazingly like goldfish, and alligators with horrible overbites. The movie is laconic to say the least, culminating in a totally preposterous last minute ending. Stick to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Mysterious Island or Journey to the Center of the Earth for good movies from Mr. Verne. This one is not a jewel at all."

"loose script, lousy directing, horrible acting, the female actress is perhaps one of worst ones like that matrix guy who could never act but with a pretty face. the whole movie is just like going-nowhere purposeless drive to an dead end. i threw it away to the garbage can after cursed it to the finish. wasted money bought this junk. three stars? give me a break."
