Tagline: Is there no escape from...

Plot: Author Ted Angelo discovers an UFO in the Columbian jungle. When he tries to spread the word, he earns more than the usual disbelief: suddenly he's hunted by almost every organization, like CIA, KGB, the mob, Nazis... and even extraterrestrials.

My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

Yawn.  So-so action adventure that hints at ROMANCING THE STONE (1984) while throwing in a strange sci-fi twist.  The action scenes drag on far too long and they're poorly done.  Franco Nero tries but not even he can save this.  George Kennedy is in it briefly but he's dubbed so that's a waste.  The music is below average for Italian film score fans of the cheese.  I would've at least enjoyed the scenery more if it weren't for the fullscreen VHS quality of the print.  Don't waste your time but if you must, it's on YouTube above.
