The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, 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, son and aide de camp returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.
Previously rated R by the MPAA for "brief violence." See more »
Many of the many torches used by the indigenous people encountered in the final expedition are modern "tiki torches" and the metal fuel canisters in them are clearly visible in several shots. See more »
I was so hyped for this movie after I read the book. What a let down , this should have been a throwback to the the classic Hollywood epics of the past. Instead it's kind of a bore, scenes set in jungle are amazing but there are too many slow drawn out parts that deal with drama back in civilization.
The acting by Hunnam is mediocre at best, Sienna Miller gives a great performance too bad she's not in more of the movie.
Overall it's not horrible but it's also just average
