Vegetarians beware, this movie is not for the faint of heart. The story starts out introducing us to our main character who just happens to be the daughter of an important figure in the United Nations. We follow her as she meets a group of activists that convince her it is a good idea to go protest a corrupt company that is about to destroy the Amazon and slaughter its inhabitants. Always a good idea! Without spoiling anything I'll just say that some of the groups' intentions are not as pure as they seem and her journey to save the Amazon does not go as planned.
I have a pretty high tolerance for gore in horror movies having been a fan of the genre since I was a child. With that said, this movie absolutely put my tolerance to the test. Mr. Roth had me squirming in my chair and covering my eyes one minute, and then had me laughing out loud the next.
Also, It is very refreshing that the entire story is not just a group of cannibals tearing people limb from limb. Don't get me wrong, that is a lot o the movie, but we aren't even introduced to the cannibals until about 30 minutes into the story. We are given the opportunity to get to know the characters and to develop feelings for them before witnessing them thrown to the wolves....or humans in this case.
In summary, the movie is a lot more fun than you may think from the previews so grab some friends, grab some barf bags (just kidding) and go see it this weekend. Let me know what you think!
