      Grant Watson Fiction Machine While the film struggles to overcome its limitations – mainly when the script requires the presence of wild animals – Castle manages to use an entertaining script and a strong cast to keep his audience happy. Rated: 6/10 May 3, 2024 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews As appealing as a hike through the Amazon without mosquito repellent.

      Audience Member Average western with an exotic locale although you really don't see enough of the landscape to get the feeling a foreign country and none of the actors really look Brazilian. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Strange 'western' set in Brazil with Glenn Ford the titular hero, who whilst driving Bulls to a ranch is forced to take sides in a battle for land. Motives remain unclear for most of the film, and there is no obvious villain for much of the piece, but this remains an involving and interesting, if little known, movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a western with a different setting which makes it feel like a Tarzan movie at certain times. It's not got great entertainment, although Cesar Romero brings a little colour into it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
