Filming included so many gunshots and big explosions that it scared local farmers, who complained to local newspapers and tv stations. See more »
The closed captions are incorrect in a number of places, most egregiously at 1:21:08, when the typist says, "It looks like a war with Fritz [meaning Germany]", which is captioned as, "It looks like a war with France." France and England, of course, were allies during WWI. See more »

Ridicule and disrespectful account of historic figure
This is a intense disappointment. After reading few reviews I was expecting something epic at the minimum for the 2h40min that the film run.... however after the first 45min I was sure that there was no way this films could reach nothing then laughter. There so many clichés that after a while you cannot avoid the laughs when is supposed to be dramatic. The plot is interesting but all the aspect that make it special are not explored nor developed. There many characters that seems to vanish without sense and the encounter with the natives at the amazonian jungle are absurd and implausible under the conditions shown. Just for context, Bolivia and Brazil have a significant variety of native dialects ( more then 300 ) this means that many of this areas where not in contact with the Spanish or the Portuguese. The acting, UFFF painful and excessive like in a soap opera. Anachronism in language and behavior... Shame that they miss a great occasion to do something espectacular.
