Viewer reviewsSo so
The main character is self-absorbed the movie is slow moving and boring. — Don in Hawaii
Well shot, terribly told.
The film, artistically, was well shot. The storyline however was terrible, the acting, terrible. A waste of my time and money. — itunesnicknamez
The reason I rented it was for Robert Pattinson and Charlie Hunnam. I thought the acting was good . I didn’t get how a man could be more in Love with his Lost City than his Lovely family just to risk his life in a dangerous place! It was worth the 99 cents though. — 53 julimar

Some movies you can walkway feeling satisfied, this isn’t one of them. — mlecallison
Warning: Horrible Ending!
SPOILER ALERT: Make sure you know the true story about what actually happened! I wasn't aware of it, and I got into the movie and it was very very good. Then, the ending happened. I have to say, it ruin the entire movie for me. I would have rather not have known ANY of the story if I knew how it ended. VERY DEPRESSING! — Cooda
Spectacular Visual and Storyline
One of the great adventure movies of all time! So glad I found it, I’ve watched it at least 4 times now — EricJ89
Very slow, very long
Not sure what the director was trying to achieve with drawn out slow dialogue and an extremely slow pace. Painful to watch. — Sandjj
This movie had no direction. It started out ok and then just plummeted. Very disappointed. — Wtfccv
Lost City of Zzzzzzzzzzz
BORING...could hardly stay awake for this. — a.k.a. MAELSTROM
Free On Amazon
This is an Amazon Prime Original. Not sure why it’s for sale on here. Anyone with Amazon Prime can watch it for free. I’m about to find out if it’s as worthless a movie as all the reviews say. — Thumms
Why Hollywood, why?
I genuinely do not understand Hollywood's need to take perfectly good source material and stick their finger in it. The book this movie was based on was truly fascinating and well written. There was no need to mess with it at all. The motivations and storyline made more sense in the book and there was zero reason to mess with it. Despite messing with the story, the movie itself was not as well made as it could be. The main problem for me was that the director tried to do too much. He should have cut out elements of the story in an effort to tell the rest better. Above all, the passage of time would have been the best plot element that is really neglected. At no point do you get a sense of the work and time and effort and difficulty of the jungle and that was a huge strength in the book. I was really,really looking forward to this movie and was sadly disapointed. — jiggajayj
Slow & Dull
Ughhh — ChristopherMusic
Boring storyline not enough action what a boring movie — Yomama12345432
Wasn't hoping for much.
Good casting, great script, good editing and a good message. Truly recommended. — Manuelmaster
What a joke. The movie is nothing but social justice warrior nonsense. Non of the trailers or commercials show this. Once you get into the film it's nothing but a racist anti-white revisionist farce. — Man At Arms
Waste of time — Catyrojas
How could the subject matter come out so incredibly boring? A real snoozer. — WantedSomethingInteresting
It was great movie — K. B.N.
I didn't deserve this
I've traveled through much of South America twice. I've read histories on exploration in South America. I've watched silly, goofy movies but found them tolerable if they were about South America. But I didn't deserve this wretched three hour movie of shadows, poor sound, and a feckless plot. — Classic Mini Man
No likeable characters
Aside from it being filled with unlikeable characters, the entire film is presumably anti-West propaganda. "Western culture is rubbish! The noble jungle-dwellers deserve our respect and envy!" Yes, and then they killed you. — Franklin Stein
Made for television movie
The acting left a lot to be desired. The movie was long and boring. — Ariauna
Interesting story. Poor storytelling.
Very surprised this has 87% fresh tomatoes. — gitzo3
a intelligent adventure movie. i wish there were more of them. — holyfoxStuggi0711
Exploration and Privation, No Lost City
I rented and watched this film in great anticipation. The movie is faithful to the wasting of life that was the protagonist's drive. A few things really bothered me though; the timeline's affects on the back story characters at home not fitting with his various returnings. The feminist viewpoint of the wife on the outset of the protagonist's return to the Amazon. That simply would not have been the attitude of the day, much less openly expressed. It was for the modern day audience, and not due to historical accuracy. And the discovery of ancient artefacts just lying on the forrest floor. With the rapid growth of vegetation there wouldn't be anything to find on the surface like that. I kept looking for an upturn in the movie that simply didn't happen. I am an archeological fan, but this movie didn't serve to meet the hype it implied. Utimately it was the discussion, on screen of a man who wasted his life pursuing something he would never find, or even come close to realizing. — The Iron Marshal
Tom Holland :)
Loved this movie, great plot and great castings!!! — Jordan mya Williams
This movie completely sucked. So boring.... — JawsRI
Strange and Dull
Gave it our best shot but could not finish this movie. Surely the book must be more appealing? — Low stead
Worth a rental
So, we learn how important England was to border line creation. I'm not a big fan of actor craft If you are, you will enjoy it more than me. — CylonRaider3617
Long, predictable, boring.
Good scenery & Ok film. The sound is terrible. Get ready to turn the volume up and down. They whisper, and some of the actors are very hard to understand! You would think by 2017 The sound in these movies would be as good as they were 50 years ago!? Nope! — Logo65
Lost City of Z
Horrible, truly horrible... don't waste your time or your money... bad boring acting... a fabricated story... look up the history before you even consider watching this. BF — Erasmus1492
The first forty five minutes is just blah - idle banter and absolutely no plot movement. Basically a hard pass. — lame65
Decent Adventure Flick
Intersting story with some fascinating history facts mixed in. Enjoyable to watch with plenty of adventure, well developed characters and twists and turns. Worth the rental! — Mexican_Black_Bear
Wait until Netflix
I was really hoping for more adventure but it's not the most exciting or easy to watch. Like others said maybe it's historical and supposed to contain accurate depictions but there are plenty of those types of dramas that are also exciting. — jdw1010
Dark, yet still has the possibility of light — man with no name'
Not good — JPV77
Bad, really, really terrible1
Don't watch this. 87% on the tomatometer is a marketing lie. Critics don't know anything. I would give 0.1 star but unfortunately iTunes rating system is not so nuanced. It's very, very boring. — Not Z, F.
I read the book and had high expectations. Felt like they just didn't do the jungle scenes enough justice in terms of how difficult and cutoff from civilization they were. — War Flick Fan
It was not what I expected.
Well, I thought it's a adventure movie but it was not. I know that this movie wants to show social and cultural contexts of U.K. and history. But it's boring if you expect adventure in Amazon. — Teddyatl
Inaudible whispering pretention
inaudible whispering marks much of the "dialogue" of this ponderous, plodding, pretentious portrrayal. When not whispering for long strecthes, there are buffoonish bouts of shouting; to you know, say stuff that is manly and, like, wicked important...and stuff. give me a break — RayMacD

what a waist of money and time
i’m surprised they characterize the genre of this movie to be “action and adventure”..! because it fits action adventure you’re looking for, then this is not the movie for you. this movie, if anything, is typical drama. and the ending, words cannot describe how disappointing it was. nothing about this movie, aside from the scenery, was satisfying at all. The actors were extraordinary. But she would expect that from high caliber actors. also was the story. However there wasn’t enough shown that would make this a good movie. Again the ending was horrible. do not waist your money — YousefQasem
Loved the book but the movie didn't do the story justice. Some big name actors with pretty average performances. — goettsch46
Excellent movie. Beautiful cinematography! Charlie Hunnam's portrayal of Fawcett was mesmerizing. My only complaint was Rob Pattinson's mumbling. — Agunnels
It's no Indiana Jones
A boring and confusing movie...confusing because audio for the first half of the film is horrible. Sounds like they are all mumbling. I have no idea what they're saying...All of sudden the main character speaks the language of an undiscovered Amazonian tribe...weak film. Shame — 99souls
I just could not get into this movie, at all....I don't want to give it a low rating simply because it was not the type of movie I was expecting. Maybe it's a historical drama...? If you're expecting an action adventure, which they do try to include, this is not a movie for you. I also have to say, I did not watch the movie in its entirety and kept walking away from it. Maybe if I had sat down and watched it from start to finish, I might have liked it better. — palangibrad
Overall, meh. — Mekoplop
More info on tube for this facenating explorer. — North-Light
The lost city of Z
Disappointing.....the lead actor was not convincing and could not carry the story. — Sue in 2
