Sean Haggerty only has an hour to deliver his illegal cargo. An hour to reassure a drug cartel, a hitman, and the DEA that nothing is wrong. An hour to make sure his wife survives. And he must do it all from the cockpit of his Cessna.
Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.

In the pursuit of self-discovery and authentic experiences, the Israeli backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg, meets a cryptic Austrian geologist in La Paz, Bolivia, and captivated by his engrossing stories of lost tribes, uncharted adventures and even gold, decides to follow him, circa 1981. Without delay and accompanied by the good friends, Kevin, an American photographer, and Marcus, a Swiss teacher, they join an expedition led by their seasoned trail-leader, deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rainforest. However, as the endless and inhospitable jungle separates the inexperienced team, before long, Yossi will find himself stranded in the depths of a nightmarish environment crawling with formidable and tireless adversaries. How can one escape this green maze?Written by
After Kevin swims to safety and the raft is destroyed, Yossi is washed down the river. At one point, a slow motion sequence shows him suffering a head injury underwater as a reddish burst of blood spills in the water. In subsequent scenes, however, whatever the shooting angle, his scalp appears to be intact, without any visible wound or bleeding. See more »
I left Israel in 1980 after three years in the army. I was desperate to escape the well-worn path. High school, university, work, marriage, kids. Not me. I wanted to be different. To experience the extraordinary. And to enter the unknown, discover lost tribes, hidden treasures, the darkest heart of the jungle. Which is why, of course, I ended up in Bolivia, South America.

I knew nothing about this one, even the synopsis wasn't anything really eye-catching. I don't think I'd even heard anyone talk about this one yet. But, I noticed it was new on Amazon Prime, so I figured what the hell, might be worth checking out.
I'm happy to say I enjoyed the hell out of this. It's a very slow moving story, but very well shot, the acting is fantastic and it sucks you right in. Come to find out this is based on a true story, which makes it that much more interesting. Love it when you find something like this that you have zero expectations about and end up enjoying it. Daniel Radcliffe turns in a fantastic performance as Yossi. His performance really takes you through the emotions the character's going through. It was one of the biggest things that stood out to me in this film.
While the film does have some issues, it takes a bit to get going and I feel like some time could have been cut out of the last half of the film, it's damn solid overall. I'm glad I gave this one a chance. While this movie certainly won't be for everyone, if you're in the mood for a good story, give this one a chance and check it out.
