This not a review, just a correction for the review by lym, the synthesizer score to SORCERER is not by Pink Floyd! Where did you get that from? It is by the German group Tangerine Dream which went on to score THIEF and LEGEND and other English-language films. Keith Jarret's "Spheres" also plays in the film.

This remake based on a story about desperate men trying to transport a very dangerous explosive to stop a burning oil well stars Roy Scheider in the lead role. He is on the lam from a syndicate and finds himself in a remote south or central american village. There are others like him, running away from various complications and hoping to live a life of anonymity and safety. With no hope of landing a job where their skills can be used, these men sign on to a driving rickety trucks involving the delivery of nitroglycerin. Roads are unmaintained involving poorly marked routes and dangerous river crossings. William Friedkin, the director has a superb eye for character types as well as an insider's knowledge of the various lifestyles of the key players that range from a terrorist to a well respected businessman. Despite being a 'remake' this film has it's own identity superbly limned by Friedkin in his handling of scenes and the film's pace. The rock group 'Pink Floyd' did the score that matched the intensity and tension of the movie. The late Roy Scheider, who is often underrated as an actor handles his role with great depth and a pitch perfect sense of weariness and cynicism. The film is deeply engaging and the tension surrounding the road trip is unmatched. I can watch this film many times and see something new.

This is an experience in entertainment for adventure and relaxing with a strong story of intrigue and emotion. Cliff hanger to the end. One of the greats.

The bridge footage in Sorcerer is outstanding , For anybody who has traveled the wild regions of south america , these scenes are starkly factual.
