Fire on the Amazon is a 1993 American-Peruvian drama-adventure film directed by Luis Llosa and starring Craig Sheffer and Sandra Bullock.

The low-budget film features an early appearance of Bullock, before her breakout role in Speed.



As reported on A&E's Biography on November 18, 2005, in an interview clip with the film's director, the film was a harrowing experience in many ways. Bullock was concerned that the canoe she was riding could have possibly tipped over and dumped her in dangerous waters. Bullock also did her only "nude" scene wearing strategically placed duct tape, which the director admiringly pointed out was never seen in the film (because of the way Bullock positioned herself), thus "preserving the illusion".
