I took a chance and decided to watch this movie last night. It's not a typical Hollywood movie, but it's an independent movie but well worth the time to watch. I've been to the Amazon and this movie took transported me there again. I liked the story and how the plot moved progressed from a tourist cruise to a hostage situation. Will recommend to other travelers that enjoy movies set in distant lands.

On an Amazon River cruise, several American tourists are taken hostage by desperate thieves attempting to recover a lost treasure deep in the jungle. A transportive movie featuring breathtaking panoramic views of the eighth wonder of the world, AMAZON QUEEN takes place in the Amazon Rainforest along the Rio Negro, Manaus, Brazil. Shot during the Covid outbreak October 2020. A group of tourists joins the riverboat "Queen" as it ventures far upriver on the Rio Negro, to visit indigenous villages and explore jungle habitats. But as the idyllic journey unfolds, a dark cloud of thievery and menace thunders aboard, shattering the voyage and threatening the passengers and crew with death. Ingenuity and resourcefulness are their only chance to survive.

Enjoyed this movie immensely - suspense in the Amazon
Great filming location, not much else to note
This movie looks like the producers rented a boat, employed inexperienced actors and let them enjoy themselves while loosely following some sort of script. Amazon River shots are amazing (they're difficult to spoil),and there are some great wildlife shots as well, but other than that it's not really interesting to watch. Acting is not good, action is slow. The hostage situation mentioned in the storyline takes place at about 2/3 of the movie. They didn't even bother to put in some digital blood and bullet marks when someone gets shot.
Brazil and the Jungle Adventure
So much stuff going on in the movie I felt like I was there. The luxury river boat was such a beautiful part of the movie. The whole robbery scene was so unexpected; yet well filmed. Great drone shots from the Queen.
