A box office flop, but this handsomely shot drama focusing on an obsessive idealist who drags his family into the rainforest to start a new life is intelligent and well played by Ford at his most charismatic.

The Mosquito Coast is an underated movie that I never heard of until it came on 1 of the movie channel's, I got to watch it & I was hooked from the start.I read a couple reviews saying this is Harrison Ford's best or most interesting peformance.I'm not a fan of Ford's at all but it's true.I think this is 1 of the very few roles of his that I didn't find boring & actually liked.A VERY good movie that makes me want to go out & read the book

Harrison Ford gives one of his most complex, deeply-felt performances in this bleak drama of a family's survival, both of the elements and their increasingly delusional father. A minor gem both artistically and emotionally, though Ford's character is even worse in the book. Final Grade: B+
