Synopsis

The incredible true story of British explorer Col. Percival Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon in 1906 and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization. Despite ridicule from the scientific establishment who perceive indigenous peoples as savages, Fawcett is driven at any cost to learn about the ways in which those of the Amazon eke out a living.

He is supported by his wife (Sienna Miller), and throughout his numerous treks, encouraged by his son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp Henry Costin (Robert Pattinson).

Based on author David Grann's nonfiction bestseller of the same name.

  • 2 stars "A collection of men mumbling to each other in the dark. There's old men mumbling to each other in English manors. There's young men mumbling to each other in dark jungle floors. There's young men mumbling to each other in WWI trenches. There's men mumbling to each other in ship holds. That's the movie. He doesn't find an ancient city, he finds broken pottery on the jungle floor. And he spends 5 minutes studying it before he leaves, this after a months long journey to get there (up a mysterious river that flows backwards towards it's source)."
