The Lost City

Ladies and Gentlemen, today I’ll be reviewing “The Lost City” by directors Aaron Nee and Adam Nee. The film is centered around “Loretta Sage” played by (Sandra Bullocks) a writer that writes books about exploring the most exotic places with her handsome cover model “Alan” played by (Channing Tatum), however, things take a quick turn when Loretta is kidnapped during her book release.


Now what makes this film very unique in its manner is that I found interesting, is that it incorporates so many genres into one film. It’s a romantic comedy, mixed and blended with a sense of adventure and plenty of action to boost.
Just looking at the incredible cast one would expect to see sparks and magic in the film but what I found I needed to see more of was “Jack Trainer” played by (Brad Pitt). This is the man that came out of nowhere to help Alan in his quest to prove to Loretta that he is more than just a handsome cover model for her books and that he could be more but once Jack Trainer came into the picture all hope was certainly lost for Alan until the most unexpected and shocking thing happened lol, you’ll have to see it for yourself to understand really.
What I did find disappointing about the film is that it’s called “The Lost City” however even after completing the film, there was never any lost city to see, we only meet a beautiful island surrounded by amazing waterfalls and left with a metaphor to ease our curious hearts lol…
Now onto the things that I liked about “The Lost City”, firstly, it’s a sadistic funny movie with plenty of different characters to which you can at least relate to one-off. Its movie references are hilarious when you figure it out and it’s based on normal ordinary people. Aside from Jack Trainer, his anything but normal.
Watching Loretta’s character grow from the anti-social sit-at-home everyday character to the lady that searches for adventure and glows when doing so with her handsome cover model Alan is wonderful to see.
I enjoy watching Channing Tatum on such goofy, down-to-earth characters, it reminds me of the character he had on “Free Guy” even though it was only a couple of minutes, it stuck to me. Same with Daniel Radcliffe, seeing him play any other character than Harry Potter is so pleasant to witness, the man is so talented though his character in this film had no determination or should I say oomph. Wish he had more character either than being a rich snob. 
The moment that sold the deal for me is when Loretta said and I quote: “What is this, Taken? Am I token, Am I sold already, Am I sold to him” I don’t know how long I laughed at this one scene but it was it then I knew I had to watch to the end.
Now as for “Beth” played by (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) I don’t know if should be happy or concerned about having such a friend lol… this lady takes no-nonsense, I bet she invested her life in the outcome of Loretta’s book tour or else it makes no sense why she would go so far lol…
All in All, The Lost City is a hilariously fun film filled with plenty of action and adventure that will leave us wanting to see more either than the “The Lost City” that we never see, how cynical.
Thanks for reading…
