Based on a real explorer, the attempt is made to help portray the courage and motivations of one of the world's great explorers of the 20th century. You have to be kinda fearless as there are so many ways to get knocked off - disease, injury, cannibalism, drowning, arrows, etc. etc.

Overlong, anachronistic, and worst of all, preachy. IMO, Fawcett's monomania isn't worth a biopic. His wife, however, should have received an OBE for single-handedly raising their children while he was off looking for more pottery.

I though it was a pretty good movie. Not my favorite. I thought it didn’t have to be 2 hours and 40 something minutes. It was very well acted. Spider-Man is in it😊 haha Tom Holland! He is great! As always!
Over all I gave this 4 star.
Warning: It’s sad!

If you like to see real time periods in the past, this is excellent. Well done on explorer 1905 to 1925, his life, attitudes, and society.

I recommend the book this is based on, by David Grann.

Okay, but I failed to see how this story was so remarkable a movie had to be made about it?? Unlike Hidden Figures, I didn't think to myself afterwards "I can't believe I've never heard of this guy before!"

I wanted to like this movie so much. It's a great story and I love the cast. However, the film suffers from poor editing. The film has a runtime of 141 minutes, and you feel every minute of the film. It is just SO long and dull.

One can see why a filmmaker would be taken by this tale and want to bring it to the screen. Perhaps David Lean could have done it; but James Gray, the director and writer of this attempt, definitely could not. The players are generally up to it, but they are saddled with dialogue that is a serial embarrassment. There are decent scenes, to be sure, but the whole is unconvincing, long and and tedious. Sole redeeming factor: we get to look at Sienna Miller's extraordinarily lovely face from time to time.
