In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region. But their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.

  • Go to the jungle they said. It'll be fun they said.

    October 30th, 2017

    Man -vs- Nature.. This film is a smorgasbord of epic cinematography, beautiful location shoots, great directing and outstanding performance by Daniel Radcliffe.. However, I felt this is one of those films that had it been played at 1.5x speed, I would have enjoyed it more. The 1h 55min run-time felt really unnecessarily long. 1hr 15-25min would ha...

  • Just incredible Landscapes

    November 2nd, 2017

    The movie is about a group of friends that are tempted to go on an adventure into the jungle and got separated and, finally lost. The concept is not new, and the movie did not surprise us at all. Some of the scenes are confusing, and the action is sometimes lost. The actors give their best to stand out, but that is difficult due to the poor script...

  • Radcliffe is excellent, and the film a not-bad effort that had the potential to be better! [+57%]

    October 22nd, 2017

    Greg McLean, who's known for his vacation-gone-awry horror flicks like 'Wolf Creek' (and its sequel), 'Rogue' and 'The Darkness', wields the microphone to narrate the real-life account of a group of backpackers getting lost in the wilderness of the Amazon (in Bolivia). The tale is told from the perspective of Yossi (Daniel Radcliffe), an Israeli e...

  • Welcome to the jungle

    October 20th, 2017

    Well, this goes exactly where you expect it to go. After all, it is about 4 dimwitted buffoons who decide to demonstrate their stupidity in as clear a fashion as is possible and, oh what a shock, the inevitable happens. They get lost. In the jungle. Where they don't have a clue what they are doing nor how to get out. There ends my analysis of the ...

  • Heart pounding survival story

    November 17th, 2017

    A mysterious guide takes an enthusiastic adventurer and his friend into the Amazon jungle, but their journey turns deadly as the darkest element of the human nature and threats of the wild force them to fight for survival. . Daniel Raddcliffe (plays Yossi Ghinsberg) trades out the Dark Forest of Hogwarts for the Amazon. In 1981, Israel-born Ghinsb...

  • Very Important Movie. -Stupid-

    November 17th, 2017

    Nothing bad technically speaking about the movie, except for the script, the characters, and the story itself. I believe the movie is important and real, because like it or not, there are thousands of bored gringos who are desperate for 'adventures' and think they're gonna be the next indiana jones or something and decide to trek up to the Amazon,...

  • Okay...If You Don't Mind Your Adventure With a Bible Study

    November 5th, 2017

    I liked this film. It wasn't great, and you can see the director directing, but it was pretty good. Everyone on screen did as they were paid to do. I wonder if they could've done with less CGI in the picture, though, as some of it seemed a little unreal.. The religious tie-ins at the end of the movie weren't expected, but taken from Yoshi's religi...

  • A struggle to empathise with the characters

    October 22nd, 2017

    This is a true story of 4 men from different parts of the world, making the stupid, seemingly pointless decision to make a long, hard trek to a 'lost' part of the Amazon jungle.. Right off the bat, the film quickly introduces us to the 4 main characters of the film. Spending not more than a minute or two introducing us to each man and their backst...

  • Gripping for the most part but slow in places.

    November 22nd, 2017

    Jungle is the story of Yossi Ghinsberg (played by Daniel Radcliffe) who, with little experience sets out into the Amazonian rainforest. The directing is fantastic, especially the underwater shots and the beautiful scenery, with a strong performance from Daniel Radcliffe. The film overall was slow in places, especially the opening 20 minutes. Howev...

  • featuring zombie feet

    November 20th, 2017

    Who needs supplies, food and medicine? No need to worry about wounds, infections and sickness either. It's the jungle after all. A few happy pills and you're good to go. At least when it comes to the second part of the movie, that was... rather unrealistic.. The first half was nice though. There you saw a group of travelers meeting each other and ...
