The title of the film is a bit of a misnomer. While Zita may be referred to as a warrior queen she lacks any of the traditional definitions of the "Amazons." She is not from South America, nor is she of an extraordinarily large build (she is in fact quite petite), nor is she from the Black Sea area that served as home to the Amazons of Greek myth.

The government is encouraging these sporting events because the people take such a keen interest in them. It's like baseball or football in our country. A tug of war is arranged between two bull elephants and the natives bet high on the outcome. Events like this are designed to keep their minds off of more *troublesome* matters.

A woman tries to locate her fiance who is missing somewhere in the jungle.
This is a movie to make strong men go slack jawed and wide eyed. At least half its running time is stock footage only some of which matches the studio shot footage (or even other bits of stock footage). The narration is so out of touch with reality as to make one wonder was the author in on the script meetings. Its truly an amazing film.
To give you an idea, the film begins with the search starting in India, for no logical reason. It then switches to Africa and goes on from there, where bits of plot from India come into play, like the native uprising in India affecting the natives in the African Jungle, or the shadowy presence trying to stop the search.
At least it moves. There's good action, and the actors are game if nothing else.
Is it worth watching?
Yes. The film at least is trying to do something for its running time. Inept film making aside the only flaw is a long passage toward the end where its just people talking. It doesn't last long and before long there's a great big fight.
On the purely enjoyable scale I give it seven out of ten.Perfect for a rainy day when you want to laugh at something.
