Emerald Forest, The
The Emerald Forest is a 1985 British adventure drama directed by John Boorman (Zardoz, Beyond Rangoon). Bill Markham (Powers Boothe) is an engineer who works on the construction of a dam in the Brazilian rainforest. When Bill takes his family to the construction site, his young son Tommy is lost in the jungle. Bill finds out that Tommy was abducted by one of the local tribes, but only after ten years of unsuccessful searching does he have a chance to meet his son, who has become the adopted son of the chief of the Invisible People tribe.
Note: while the movie was filmed in Brazil, the weapons were provided by British armorer Bapty & Co.

Bill Markham (Powers Boothe) uses the CAR-15 carbine during the confrontation with Fierce People tribe. Later it falls into the hands of Chief Jacareh (Claudio Moreno). The carbine perfectly matches an XM177E1 and fires full auto, so it's possibly an original version rather than a mocked up commercial Colt Carbine.
Rico (Arthur Muhlenberg) captures an AKS-47 from the brothel guards. The AK is seen in hands of Bill Markham (Powers Boothe).
