Exiled from their home nations, four strangers from separate corners of the earth agree to undertake a dangerous mission to transport unstable dynamite through the dense jungle of South America in order to earn their passage home. When the slightest bump in the road could equal instant death, the real question is not whether these men will survive this nerve-shredding ordeal but who will they have become if they return at all?
Underrated edge of the seat thriller.
- Sorcerer review by SD
The film has a slow burn/intro which I slightly struggled with. But once it gets going, it's edge of the seat tension and clear narrative. Two sequences involving bridge crossings in a storm are fantastic and there's strong performances all round. A soundtrack by Tangerine Dream really anchors the film and suspense (fans of John Carpenter scores/The Warriors and Drive should check out the soundtrack) Well worth checking out. One which had gone under my radar from a long time, but glad I was able to see the blu ray. Excellent transfer and a solid film.
