Robert Zemeckis (1984)

PG Certificate


Our Score
In this cracking jungle-set treasure hunt, director Robert Zemeckis spices up a deliberately old-fashioned matinée adventure with tongue-in-cheek gags, unpredictably clever touches and top-of-the-range action. Kathleen Turner gives an exhilarating performance as the New York novelist who forsakes her cosy Manhattan lifestyle to rescue her sister in the jungles of Colombia. Turner dazzles in a role that proved a career turning point, and there's a wonderful chemistry between her and world-weary co-star Michael Douglas.


A romantic novelist goes in search of her kidnapped sister in the steamy jungles of South America, only to become the target of a villainous general who demands as a ransom the valuable treasure map in her possession. Help is at hand in the form of a craggy daredevil fortune hunter, who has his eye on a share of the profits. Comedy adventure, starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito.
