The Lost City of Z tells the story of Percy Fawcett who ventured into the Amazon in search of a myth. What he discovered became legendary.
What an extraordinary film that’s another example of length making it almost insufferable. It’s a much preferred watch compared to, say, the new Transformers atrocity currently in cinemas that holds a similar length. In saying this, however, it would’ve been nice if the film were historically accurate but again, this may be asking too much with the current state of the film. The quality of filmmaking here is noticeable and therefore much more appreciated for what the film is worth.
Ever since his days in Twilight, there’s no doubt that Robert Pattinson has improved though he still remains somewhat stale. He has a long way to go but has also come a long way so far. The star leading the film through the Amazon Jungle in Charlie Hunnam carried the weight of the film on his shoulders with much more ease than with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, in which he awkwardly stumbled through. Whatever happened between those two films was a noticeable difference as he really proved himself to be an amicable actor. It was also such a different side to him that we saw in Son’s of Anarchy.
It is worth the run time and if you’re looking for something to watch, amid the slew of trash (or lack there of) gracing our screens at the moment, The Lost City of Z is something to consider.
