About the Movie
Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett — supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson) — returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in writer/director James Gray’s classic filmmaking style, The Lost City of Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie is 141 minutes long but you rarely feel its weight; that's how confident a filmmaker Gray has become.
Fresh: A throwback to the good old days when adventure movies had riveting performances, gorgeous camerawork and the ability to tell stories that made sense, The Lost City of Z holds attention and keeps you fascinated.
Fresh: The movie is long, but never slow, even as it leaves ample time to survey the breathtaking vistas captured by cinematographer Darius Khondji.
Fresh: Hunnam expertly conveys Fawcett's bravery, spirit and sometimes reckless nature. At times we sense even he knows he might never find absolute proof of the City of Z - but he'll die trying if he must.
The storyline was very odd and all over the place.
It was amazing!
Loved it tho story was great
This movies a work of art and depicts the great victorian generation of exploration! The movie has great actors, director, and was actually filmed in the jungle. Overall great movie got most all the key points of the story accurate from book the only negative thing I have to say was just disappointed Jacks best friend wasn't in the movie at all. He played a big part in the ending possibly no one really knows for sure. But that's okay he wouldn't offer much on screen anyway but for the ending maybe. Whoever does not know you should read the book by David Grann. I felt as though both the book and movie go hand-in-hand pretty nice overall! Ignore any negative reviews!
