Synopsis


The Lost City of Z
During an expedition in the Amazon in 1906, British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) grows obsessed with finding a lost city that could be the key to understanding the origins of human civilization. Over the next two decades, he returns to the Amazon multiple times in the hope of unearthing its location. Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and Angus MacFadyen co-star in this adaptation of David Grann's 2009 nonfiction novel, which was directed by James Gray (The Immigrant, We Own the Night). ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    I did really enjoy the movie and it held my interest all the way through. But I'm not sure if I should have purchased it. Normally I buy movies with the expectation of multiple viewings but once it's enough for me with this one. I didn't really care for the main character. Not that he's a bad man or character but I just didn't feel like he was ever in danger or passionate about exploring. I think that might just be my personal taste. I feel if you choose to leave your loving family then whatever is driving you should be overwhelming. Anyway, it is still a good movie. Just my two cents.

    Charlie Hunnam gives the best performance of his career so far. Robert Pattinson is fabulous as well. However, the film as a whole loses a lot of its hoped-for impact through strange and confusing editing. Perhaps there is a director's cut with missing footage that would help keep a viewer more compelled by the admittedly fascinating true story. If you want a great Amazon jungle film, watch Herzog's Aguirre or Fitzcarraldo. In fact, if you haven't seen them both, watch them immediately. This film even indirectly references Fitzcarraldo with the opera scene. It's gorgeous and interesting, but not great. Tom Hardy's recent Taboo series was English period imperialist drama at its best. This is a near miss.

    Probably one of the best movies I've seen this year. It's lush and Grand in scope. Really cool to have films that take place in the jungle it just feels real and natural also the performance by Charlie Hunnam was phenomenal as well especially since I wasn't expecting much from him. This was an excellent film that I think even the most weary of people would find enjoyable it's got drama, adventure, great storytelling and we get to learn about someone in history we don't really talk about very often someone who was a visionary beyond his years rest in peace Percy Fawcett and his son.

    The film realistically portrays the unbelievable hardships endured by those exploring uncharted jungle territory in Amazonia at the turn of the 20th Century. Col. Percy Fawcett’s 3rd trip in April of 1925 was to be his last – never to return – he disappeared without trace and his ultimate fate is still unknown today. An astonishing story of perseverance and quest for the truth of the Amazons cultural past

    Courageous Compulsion

    This is the story -- based on an actual person -- of a man who has to follow his obsession with discovering lost civilizations in the unexplored South American Amazon jungle in the early 1900s. When he does so, risking his own life, his efforts are acts of courage. When he thereby puts his family members in jeopardy, one might reach another verdict. This is an adventure thriller, 2 and 1/2 hours long, which, however, never seems less than compelling viewing, with great visuals and great character portrayals.

    The movie could have been a little shorter, 90 mins instead of 120. Very interesting story especially since it had really happened. The movie was very interesting. The storyline at times was slow. But all in all it holds your interest. It truly is a sad movie , but it dose have a very interesting ending.I would not recommend this for the action movie goer. But this is a movie for the avid movie watcher. Which then I would recommend it.

    A genuine slow-burner, "Lost City of Zed" gets more engrossing as it proceeds. Good acting, subtle drama and intriguing history combine for a real winner, one I'll watch many times. Charlie Hunnam had me worried at first, but he won me over by the half-hour mark. The bonus features are limited, but interesting.
