There are several different films about King Arthur and how he became king. This is no different. We seen an adaption in latest ‘Transformers‘ where he had help from a drunk called Merlin and he got help from outer space robots.
In this adaption we see a dark ages adaption where magic exist. In the beginning we see a toddler Arthur being shipped away to be saved when Camelot is being under siege. Both his parents die when they are trying to save him. So, Arthur grows up in a whore houses thinking he was the son of a prostitute, as an adult he later ran the house he grew up in. No idea who he actually is. Until one day when he is being shipped back home. Arthur’s uncle is now the king and he want to find Arthur to later kill him so he can become the true king. Doesn’t actually go as planned for him.
We see Arthur’s journey to kinghood, he grows as a man and fighter. He gets Excalibur and that sword is showing him some powerful stuff, but he refuses to accept the sword and his heritage. Until he simply have to.
We see some very familiar faces in the film like Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pasific Rim), Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamon, Gladiator), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Wire), Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Spy), Michael Persbrandt (Beck, The Hobbit). And that is just to name a few of them. The director of this film is none other than Guy Ritchie.
Actors: Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Michael Persbrandt, Craig McGinlay, Tom Wu and many more.
When it comes to stories based on true stories you need to keep in mind that some of the story have been altered to the film, added something or removed something because it wasn’t interesting enough. ‘The Lost City of Z’ is taking place between 1911 – 1920’s about a man Percy Fawcett, a man who was obsessed about finding a lost city in the Amazon jungle.
He left three times and going to first world war once. But last time he left he went missing. During his travels he saw antiques older than any society spread out, knowing it’s a city out there somewhere, a city who been long forgotten and abandoned. When Percy is about to return for a third time his oldest son Jack is to join him. He wants to go out there for longer and with less things to make it an easy one.
Percy & Jack sets off to the jungle and charts into unknown terratory.Thinking they would return with the exact location of the lost city. With high hopes they are making their way through the jungle, the jungle that got so many dangers, mainly the tribes.
It’s been almost 100 years since the disappearance of Percy & Jack Fawcett, no one knows what actually happened to them. They either got a cut and died from illness from a untreated wound, kidnapped by a tribe and prepared to be the meal. Might even have fallen down a cliff. We will never know what happened. We can only speculate.
I would recommend seeing the film and Percy’s struggle to be believed as for he was made fun of before they believe him.. During 21st century archeologists have found a network of tunnels, bridges etc that suggest city of Z.
Actors: Charlie Hunnam, Tom Holland, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, Angus Mcfadyen, Edward Ashley, Clive Francis and many more.
