Storyline

In the pursuit of self-discovery and authentic experiences, the Israeli backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg, meets a cryptic Austrian geologist in La Paz, Bolivia, and captivated by his engrossing stories of lost tribes, uncharted adventures and even gold, decides to follow him, circa 1981. Without delay and accompanied by the good friends, Kevin, an American photographer, and Marcus, a Swiss teacher, they join an expedition led by their seasoned trail-leader, deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rainforest. However, as the endless and inhospitable jungle separates the inexperienced team, before long, Yossi will find himself stranded in the depths of a nightmarish environment crawling with formidable and tireless adversaries. How can one escape this green maze? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

Yossi was apparently planning his trip through the wild Bolivian jungle for weeks or months. He knew how dangerous and unpredictable things might get, yet he neglected to take along even the most basic supplies, including a first aid kit, bug repellent, foot powder, water purification tablets, a mosquito net, food, extra socks, a knife, etc. Even a Boy Scout would have had the foresight to include these items in his backpack. The fact that he had none of these very nearly cost him his life. See more »

The Horrors of the Jungle
20 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Well this one was a surprise, I went into the film knowing nothing except it takes place in a jungle and based on a true story . I was sceptical when I saw the name Daniel Radcliffe.

In his Mr Potter days he was a bit wooden, Again in the Woman in Black he was wooden but this worked for the film. There was a glimmer of something in Horns but he never really looked comfortable in front of the camera in any of these films. It always seemed acting was a bit difficult for him and he was just focused on delivering lines.

His best performance was Swiss Army Man but in that he was dead lol.

So imagine my surprise when he first appears on screen in "Jungle". Instantly its like a different actor entirely, he looked relaxed comfortable and charismatic. In this he plays Yossi an Israeli on an adventure. This required Radcliffe doing an Israeli accent which again I was worried about. In this case he nails it and it seemed this improved his performance.

Its Daniels performance here that keeps you connected !!

Anyway enough about Daniel.

The film is not fast paced but it is a horror. Part Psychological but also the real horrors we can find in nature and the wild, the Horrors of the jungle !!!

The Cinematography is brilliant, It looks like its all on location and they picked some beautiful spots to shoot in. There is a lot of beauty to be seen but that beauty can be deceiving as we soon discover.

While a lot of this film is within these natural surroundings there is a small about of CGI during certain parts of the film to create fantastical moments ( often due to Hallucinogenics etc ). These moments were done with great care and beauty however, there is a bit of art here.

There are also what I call dream sequences and while they were quirky they also highlighted the psychological moments Yossi was going through. I've never starved but I have gone Nil by mouth a few days due to surgery. Dreaming about food is highly frustrating.

Now this film may not be for everyone as at times its pacing can be slow as we get to take in the beautiful surroundings. At other times however it can keep you on the edge of your seat with tension !!! Something lacking a lot in many modern films.

The first half of the film also contains a few twists and turns that will keep you wondering where this is heading.... believe me its only head to bad things, Painful things, gross things, dangerous films and the biggest killer despair !!!!.

Sometimes the scariest things are real and what we have in nature all around us, adventures seem like a good idea but hold that thought...

8 out of 10 for me !
