The Lost City of Z REVIEWS

  • Unusual Review Notes for an Unusual Movie

    June 27th, 2017

    That the movie succeeds is a credit to Hunnam, who comes of age both literally and figuratively in this movie with a performance of great humility, charm, and grit. A far cry from his breakout role as a motorcycle gang leader, and an even further cry from his awkward performance in Guy Ritchie's unique (and hopefully never-to-be-repeated) view of ...

  • Massive let down

    March 28th, 2017

    It's a really good example of how a terrible script can completely destroy a movie. There are too many things which make no sense to list, but the key issues are:. For a film that seems so keen to virtue-signal about white ignorance and racism, it does nothing to explain to us Fawcett's theories about the people of Z. Who were they? How did their ...

  • The Lost Art of Script Writing

    March 28th, 2017

    This is the first review I have ever contributed to IMDb which I use on a regular basis to inform my viewing choices but I feel compelled to write it as the high ratings are so unjustified I feel I have a duty to share my experience and balance the 7.4 (!!!!) score. I went into this with high expectations... every ingredient was present to potenti...

  • The film takes place in the 20th century, where British explorer Percy Fawcett journeys into the Amazon to discover evidence of a previously unknown civilization.

    May 1st, 2017

    I'm sad to say that I was disappointed by this film in almost every aspect. It seems to me that the biggest problem it has is the pacing. For a two and a half hour long film, pacing is important to keep the viewers engaged and this movie just gets it completely wrong. It feels like three movies clumsily stuffed into one, and as if that wasn't enou...

  • If the book is as captivating as the film, I'm glad I haven't read it!

    March 29th, 2017

    I found the experience of watching this film to be akin to that of listening to a person living with dementia telling you about their life, with an adoring relative interjecting only to say "Oh he was lovely!" every now and then.. It is, in essence, a series of episodes vaguely summarising various events of Fawcett's life. Occasionally but briefly...

  • Should be renamed The Lost City of Zzzz...

    March 24th, 2017

    What was probably an incredibly interesting story has been turned into an incredibly dull film. Charlie Hunnam's Fawcett is as flat as roadkill and Robert Pattinson might as well have stayed at home in bed for all he brings to the tale. As for Angus Macfadyen; he obviously thought he was in a different movie entirely. Three times during this film ...

  • A stunningly shot and classically told story

    March 24th, 2017

    This is a wonderful film that restores faith in the traditional art of movie making. Richly shot on 35mm by DoP Darius Khondji, every frame feels like an exquisite painting, carefully constructed by a filmmaker at the top of his game in James Gray. The backdrops of England, the Western Front and Amazonia all have interest on every inch of the scre...

  • Interesting portrait of a man, indeed but as a movie it almost lost me.

    April 15th, 2017

    It's one of those labor of loves it seems as the film felt like it was more interested in making an artistic narrative than it was about making money. I can respect that, but it was a boring movie for that reason. . The Lost city of Z is about a British explorer named Percy Fawcett who while on a survey mission in the amazon discovers evidence tha...

  • Someone managed to make the exploration of the Amazon incredibly dull.

    March 29th, 2017

    *****Spoiler Alert**** I was really looking forward to this film, as how can the exploration of the Amazon be anything other than amazing? Well I was wrong, this was utterly boring, excruciatingly dull and just plain awful. I can only give it a 1 out of 5 rating. After the first 30 minutes I was looking at my watch and wondering if I should bother...

  • Exploitation and exploration

    February 22nd, 2017

    Based on the true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who made several expeditions to the lost city of Z, believed to be the remains of El Dorado in the Brazilian jungle. The movie follows three of these expeditions and first picks up his life with a long introduction from his military career onwards. The movie becomes only interesting with t...
