The lost city, or the Emerald Bromancé

A modern Emerald romance wanted to be a joint film between Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, but it was more worth watching just because of Brad Pitt and the evil Harry Potter. Who knows why, but Sandra Bullock has decided not to bring her more adult, “normal” movies to theaters. Birds in the box or most recently the Unforgivable was only available on the surface of Netflix, while Ocean’s 8 – The Scam of the Century and Now The Lost City is also trying its luck on the big screen. Of course, it’s understandable somewhere, since the former you were packed with stars, plus it was a feminine version of an established franchise, while the subject of our article right now is a spectacular adventure movie … trying to be.

Sandra Bullock is a very good actress, she has proven this several times, but her role choices don’t always come in. It was a memorable year, for example, when he had a good little comedy success at the box office (Wedding Offer), received an Oscar for Champions of the Heart, and Golden Raspberry for His Real. And unfortunately, this year doesn’t start too bright either.

Loretta is a writer who continues to succeed with her series of romantic novels, but her creativity has left her since her husband died. In addition, the success of the model on the cover of her book, Alan, is also irritating, so she decides to end up with the character. However, after an incident, a millionaire kidnaps her, and Alan decides to prove Loretta can always count on her and set out to save her.


The story of the film is pretty silly, but we didn’t expect a much more serious background story from an adventure film like this. However, this story attracts the fact that the protagonist Sandra Bullock is visibly tense in her role. Though if he gets good companions, he can function well as a comedian (Built-in Beauty, Female Body), even with a weaker story, but unfortunately nothing helped him here. It’s embarrassing to watch most of his moves, the chemistry doesn’t work much with Channing Tatum either, which is already a performance.

The one who still needs to be singled out is the former Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe, who apparently lubricates the role of evil, doing him very well. It brings a similar character to the sequel to The Blindfolds, but is worked out here and has apparently learned from its mistakes there. Never much, there is a balance between a pampered millionaire and a determined villain – and he knows it all with a smile.

The essence of the adventure films is given by the sight, which is no bigger problem. We won’t throw our brains away from him, but the fact is that the film is photographed very nicely, of course with a jungle environment it’s very hard to take a vest. Regardless, The Lost City is nothing more than a mindless adventure backed up by relatively good actors. The typical colorless, odorless that quickly evaporates. 6/10
