The film is of interest in that it portrays an early explorer in the Amazon who seemed to be somewhat sympathetic to the indigenous peoples he encountered.
Movie was very long and pretty stupid. 2 1/2 hours and no conclusion. Try something else
As sometimes happens with Hollywood, the film departs from reality in significant ways.
It seems as non-fiction.
Anyway, the nature is wonderful. People are strong, brave and hopeful.
No happy end...
A good documentary type of movie following the travels of Fawcett while he surveys the border between Bolivia and Brazil for the Royal Geographical Society, discovering broken pottery and other artifacts, before having to flee aggressive natives in the area. Years later, after having secured funding, Fawcett returns to the area with his son to find the site. Though his widow keeps hope until her death in 1954, the Fawcett men are never heard from again.
Uninspiring, not entertaining either. Comparing to another English explorers movie ' Mountains of the Moon', this is a B movie.
I dunno, I liked it. Maybe people were disappointed because it was packaged wrong ("Real life Indiana Jones!") or people expected something else from a movie with 2 pretty boy leads. Based on the best-selling book, this is the story of Percy Fawcett, a British soldier turned explorer who is searching for the titular lost city in the jungles of the Amazon. He has a wife and family, but is constantly drawn back to the jungle, where his quest becomes obsessive (Don't they always?). Charlie Hunnam from "Sons of Anarcy" is Fawcett and while I generally find him annoying, he's quite good here. As is a hirsute Robert Pattinson as his companion. Sienna Miller is his wife, who has more of a role than women often do in these manly adventure movies. The jungle scenes are eye-popping, sometimes reminiscent of "Apocalypse Now" and "Aguirre, the Wrath of God," as is the madness that starts to overtake the men. Directed by James Foley ("The Immigrant," "We Own the Night"). "Embrace of the Serpent" is a good balance to the great white explorer by showing the native point of view.
Had high hopes for this movie.
Hey...a "lost city"! Whoa..."Z"...neat name! Uh-oh.Gotta watch those expectations! Nothing much here.
Great demonstration of how to make intriguing history boring. Don't know if I blame the film-makers entirely...
It's from the best-seller by non-fiction author David Grann, whose latest is the story of Oklahoma Native deaths about 100 years ago. Killers of the Flower Moon. Tried that. Not much there, either, so if they decide to make a movie of THAT one, I'll know to skip.
Zzzzzz! As in a snooze.
I enjoyed this movie, was a bit of a slow start but overall a good view!!!!
