"Treasure of the Amazon" is typically reviewed as barely deserving of B movie status. Filmed in Mexico, this video was released in 1985 featuring, Stuart Whitman, Donald Pleasence, Sonia Infante (exploitation style gratuitous upper body nudity occasionally), John Ireland, Ann Sidney (Miss World 1964), and others. I suppose I should explain that some footage in this film was borrowed from documentaries on rainforests, and that makes the hour and 45 minutes easier to watch. There are wild animals such as leopards, crocodiles, enormous boa constrictor snakes, panthers, and flesh eating crustaceans (crabs that eat a man alive), as well as head hunters that use blowguns and poison darts then decapitate their human victims while still alive. Human nature is as big a threat as any as betrayal creeps in after discovering gold and diamonds in the rugged rainforest. There is quicksand, biting insect swarms, piranha, swamps, cliffs, waterfalls, caves, and other dangerous things to prevent getting into the rainforest, or getting back out. A steam driven paddle boat takes us along a river, where we encounter some narrative dialogue to stage the story, and it doesn't take very long to realize you're not watching this video for the acting quality or ability. As you begin to hope there's lots of female nudity, you get treated to about a dozen black husky women in their 30's & 40's as they simulate a National Geographic genre wrestling match as if they were the female warriors known as Amazons. The camera angle mostly blocks the view, and the girls are husky enough you actually don't mind. Miss World Ann Sidney never gives us more than underwear shots, but Sonia Infante makes up for it. In fact, Sonia Infante makes up for the rest of the entire lameness of the cast, special FX, or poor directing and editing elsewhere in the film. Bless you Sonia Infante. Not a good family video, and not a good first date flick. But the film actually has its moments, and for my expectations, I'm going to say this film delivers.
