Since I'm a huge fan of Harrison Ford, I definitely had to watch this movie at some point. It was the second time in a row that Ford worked with Peter Weir. Indeed, just a year before, they released ' Witness' which was critically lauded and a box-office success. This flick didn't become such a big hit, it has even become one of the more obscure movies starring Harrison Ford and there is actually ... read more

" Charlie, the narrator, tells the story progressively from the time "Father" uproots this American family only to set them down in the virgin jungles of Honduras. The father is a genius of sorts as well as a Harvard dropout who believes America has become "Hell" in many ways with its capitalism and poison. The father is undoubtedly a very smart man and his innovations and inventions throughout the book are truly believable and amazing. "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"13.6, PC Harrison Ford muuttaa perheensä kanssa viidakkoon, koska elämä jenkeissä ei maistu. Alku on ihan kiinnostava Fordin kuumotellessa ruuvit löysällä ydinsodasta, mutta viidakkoon päästyä hahmo alkaa tuntua jääräpäisyydessään rasittavalta eikä mitään kunnon naksahtamista hahmon osalta tapahdu. Tämä olisi ollut ihan tervetullutta, sillä nyt Mosquito Coast on kuivaa ja perhedraaman tasolle pehmitettyä tavaraa."
