What a nice pleasant surprise this film is, many are skeptical whether to watch this film or not.
It’s safe to say, the film and the cast will not disappoint. Get ready to laugh! There’s just something ab out watching people get lost in the jungle with some action, some comedy and some drama mixed in. It’s almost like we don’t get enough of these films. Remember ‘The Mummy’ with Brendan Frasier and how it was an adventure, with a love twist and some comedy thrown in there? If you enjoyed watching those types of films then you will definitely be all about this one. Bring on the nostalgia!
The on-screen chemistry between Sandra Bullock who plays the leading lady, Loretta Sage and Channing Tatum who plays the role of a luscious model, Alan is enlightening.
Sandra Bullock takes on the role of a brilliant, but reclusive author with an archaeological background that has spent her career writing about exotic places in her popular romance-adventure novels featuring a handsome cover model Alan insert… ahem Mister Channing Tatum of course!
Let’s be honest, you can throw both these artist into any film and they can equally make it work. Sandra Bullock always gives it her all and never disappoints. Her comedic passion really does drive her films. As for Channing Tatum, he has to be one of the most underrated comedians in films. The man’s got chops and come on he’s certainly some great eye-candy. But even without the looks, he really does give it his all in all his films but when it comes to little jokes and comedy sequences such as this film, he really does shine. It’s great, sexy and impressive to see a many with his looks to make fun of himself, understand comedy and just let it all go. Let’s hope these two come together for another film because we really need it. If we do get another one of these, let’s just say there better be a better script as it was not the best or the most funny. Channing and Sandra were still able to take it and run with it.
The funny corny thing about Channing’s character is that he has dedicated his life to taking on this fabio-hero like character, “Dash” in real life. Loretta is annoyed by the fact that this man actually thinks he’s the man from her books and throw some reality into his face while on the first stop of her new book tour. In a twist of events, right after their little fight, Loretta is kidnapped by a spoiled little billionaire played by Daniel Radcliffe.
Like a spoiled little brat, this billionaire kidnaps her to have her find an ancient lost city and it’s treasures which she describes in on of her books. Like any leading man, Alan sets off to rescue his leading lady to prove that he can be the hero from the pages in her novels. Together they both take on the elements of the jungle, a group of mercenaries on a mission to capture her while trying to survive and secretly hoping to find the lost city.
If you want to have a good time and laugh, this is one you can’t miss.
