What a superb movie beginning to end. He does his own stunts most of the time and well directed. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie!

Spielberg ripped off elements of this film to later use in Raiders of The Lost Ark. It's towards the end. You'll know when you see it. Great fun film. Images capture a particular time in Brazil. Beautiful.

Classic adventure movie. I heard a lot about this movie growing up, but never got a chance to watch it until today. Glad I did... "La soupe est bonne, mon commandant!" :)
The movie borrows a lot from Hergé's Adventures of Tintin.
