Movie review: The Lost City

Directors: Aaron Nee and Adam Nee
starring: Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe
running time: 112 minutes

I will be completely honest; I was so excited about the idea of ​​seeing the lost City. From the trailer, it looked like it was going to be one of those movies with the complete package. Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt? The Dreamboat duo we didn’t know we needed. Sandra Bullock? Always Great, especially in comedy. That, and I’m totally biased for an adventure revolving around ancient relics and treasures. So, like I said, the whole package, right?

As a brief summary, this movie It centers on writer Loretta Sage (Bullock), a romance/adventure novelist who incorporates ancient history into her work thanks to her late husband. But when it turns out that one of the places in her book, The lost city of d, it may be true, she encounters Abigail Fairfax (Daniel Radcliffe), who kidnaps her in hopes of finding him a hidden treasure that resides there. Enter Alan (Tatum), the cover model for Loretta’s books who is bent on proving he’s more than just a pretty face, and sets out to save her.

The word “disappointment” sounds harsh, but the movie does not live up to expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it’s by no means horrible, but it sounds like a classic case of “most of the things that make it good are in the trailer”. Quite frankly, some of the humor falls a bit off, with the leech scene we all knew was one of the main points of the humor. That doesn’t mean, however, that I’m sitting here unaffected by the whole thing. Tatum and Bullock play their roles superbly, with Tatum as the lovable offender who always scores an A for effort, and Bullock as the satirist who is forever unimpressive. It’s a dynamic that works oddly well, and I wouldn’t mind watching it again if the actors’ natural humor was fully enhanced.

Is there anything else to take away from the movie? Well, I’ve learned that a flashy suit can be very useful in the woods

Daniel Radcliffe plays his role too well, straying as far from the Harry Potter we all know as possible, as he plays the main villain. My problem isn’t the acting, it’s the kind of Abigail Fairfax villain that’s in the movie – he’s just a little naughty. Nothing more. It was proven that his father, the owner of large money, did not give him what he wanted, and this appears. It’s just all barking and no biting, and I find myself rolling my eyes at it a lot. If that’s what the screenwriters are after, then the job is done, but I wasn’t sold.

I think my main problem is with the lost City he is It did not stand out from any of the other action/adventure films set in the jungle. her core Tomb riderstrangely mashed with Jumanji Reboots. I guess what I’m saying is that it’s nothing new for this genre. It probably won’t be one of my favorite movies anytime in the near future, but that doesn’t mean I won’t watch it again. It’s an easy hour with familiar topics, good staff, and a few laughs.

Is there anything else to take away from the movie? Well, I’ve learned that a sparkly suit can be very useful in the woods, so it’s clearly a good fit for all occasions. That, and nothing less than saving someone who remembers to bring snacks.

Did you know? After making a cameo in the movie Brad Pitt Express train (2022), Sandra Bullock befriended Pitt and saw an opportunity to enjoy acting, which led to Pitt accepting a cameo in this film.

The Lost City is now shown in cinemas
