The Mosquito Coast Movie Review

One of Harrison Ford's most underrated features, The Mosquito Coast features Ford as a near-psychotic guy destined to leave America behind to settle his family in Nicaragua to start fresh. Part Robinson Crusoe, part Indiana Jones, the tale spun here is one hell of a ride, filled with ups and downs, friendly natives and criminals, and a very odd preacher who throws a wrench into the proceedings. A definite after-midnight must-see.
