The Lost City. Between archeology, adventure and romance

What would happen if a famous and appreciated author of adventure novels, expert in archeology and now vanished civilizations, creator of an imaginary archaeologist hero, were kidnapped during the presentation of her latest novel by a well-known tycoon? What could happen if the same model that she poses on the covers of her works thinks about trying to free her from her? And what would happen if the well-known billionaire who kidnapped the woman was willing to do anything, economically and morally, to be able to recover that precious treasure that the woman tells in her stories?

The Lost City is a fun and entertaining story that focuses on the adventurous events involving the duo of Loretta Sage and Alan Caprison, a couple who are as fun as they are alchemical. The charm of the story, the development of relationships, the exciting adventure that follows make it perfectly enjoyable the film that lasts just under two hours and which focuses above all on the evolution of the story between the two stars.

The film also plays a lot on the stereotypes of the different characters: Loretta Sage has to bear the weight of a character that has now taken on a life of its own and whose success often seems to be linked to the physical skills of the model who plays the role of the protagonist in her covers; Alan Caprison is relegated instead to that beautiful but not very intelligent figure, appreciated by the public mainly for his appearance but nothing more than him; Abigail Fairfax is the cruel unscrupulous billionaire who would do anything to achieve his goal, not only investing money in such a risky and uncertain venture but also completely disinterested in the lives of others, even her own men. ; Jack Trainer, on the other hand, is the all-action man who alone manages to knock out an entire team of enemies with the utmost ease, without any effort and with an innate class.

In the cast the absolute protagonists are Sandra Bullock (Demolition Man / Speed ​​/ 28 days / The Blind Side / Gravity) and Channing Tatum (Step Up / GI Joe – The birth of Cobra / Dear John / Magic Mike / Jupiter – The fate of the universe ), joined by the excellent Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter / The Woman in Black / What If / Victor – The Secret Story of Dr. Frankenstein / Now You See Me 2) and a hilarious and ironic Brad Pitt (Interview with the Vampire / Seven / The Army of the 12 Monkeys / Fight Club / Inglourious Basterds).

The Italian version proposed by Paramount Pictures and distributed by Koch Media is proposed with a blu-ray edition that presents a good amount of special contents that allow you to discover different cut scenes, some of which really deserved to be present at the inside the film, as well as explore different aspects of the film, starting with the relationship developed between Bullock and Tatum, the management of the rescue in the jungle and the reconstruction of the lost city. The audio department offers a Dolby Atmos for the English track and a 5.1 Dolby Digital for those in Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese and Portuguese.
