Immature production with few saving virtues
This film is composed of elements that appeal to me but I was disappointed. The acting is journeyman quality and the cinematography is professional. The story is generally juvenile and poorly detailed, with some exceptions. Those good scenes made viewing less painful. The plot development tries, but fails to achieve a coherence and fails to allow the characters to become real. This leaves the movie as an 18 year old’s fantasy of what he could do if he left his home town in anger and embarrassment and had hot chicks falling for him through a series of adventures while traveling on money provided by a cool dad living vicariously. The young hero accomplishes nothing on his own merit except for saving the trans-Darien expedition from a guerrilla band in a scene that rings so phony it would have worked better as a dream sequence. This is not a retelling of the universal stories of transformation through adversity or rites of passage. Although the central character grows a beard and looks older by the end of the movie he has not matured. Likewise, decent acting and production values have not created a mature or compelling film.
I had the privilege of watching this film during the 2008 Film Festival in San Jose, California. This film was beautifully made and I truly enjoyed it. I thought the cast delivered great performances and the cinematography was absolutely spectacular! I loved the fact that this film was exclusively shot on location, so the audience could get a glimpse of each country they traveled to. The audience loved this adventure-comedy-romance story which also delivered some pretty funny scenes. I will say that it had a lot of unnecessary cursing. I thought it would have been just as funny without the excessive bad language. I got the impression that perhaps this was to show the dynamics of each character and how they all worked well together, despite how different they were from each other during the hike.
I’d like to add that at the arrival of my screening, they actually had to turn people away because the film was not only sold out, but had exceeded the max seating capacity of the theater. I learned that this had happened the night before as well. So, if you plan on seeing this film, get there early to guarantee a seat. *I ended up on the floor… and still loved it!
I enjoyed this so much and I highly recommend this film.
