Sorcerer is an adventure, drama movie. The movie is about four unfortunate men from different parts of the globe agree to risk their lives transporting gallons of nitroglycerin across dangerious south american jungle. Their only chance of escape is to drive two trucks filled with unstable nitroglycerin up a long and rocky mountain road in order to plug an escalating oil refinery blaze. With their deadly cargo likely to explode at the slightest bump, the four men must put aside their differences and work together to survive. A considerable number of critics, as well as the director himself, attributed the film’s commercial failure to its release at roughly the same time as Star Wars, which instantly became a pop-culture phenomenon. Some observers consider the success of Star Wars and the box-office failure of Sorcerer to be a starting point in the decline of the New Hollywood cinema movement and the beginning of the blockbuster era.
