A lesser known adventure B-movie drama about a planeload of people stranded in a South-American jungle island populated by cannibals... As a political assassin, Rod Steiger outacts everyone, while Robert Ryan plays a hardened pilot and Anita Ekberg is purely ornamental as a down-on-her-luck prostitute. The film is actually a remake of Farrow's 'Five come back'. It's a pleasant and non too demanding midnight flick.
Quite a good film really, and I felt better than the original. The main reason for this is better performances by the actors, namely Ryan. Has a feel to it that the tv show LOST later ripped off to much success. Some parts are hokey and melodramatic, but a film with a cat fight in water featuring Akita Ekberg? Im sold. Kidding, it adds zero to the film. All jokes aside, its worth seeing. 4 stars
