Culture Maven review: "The Lost City"
Film Review & Podcast by c d kaplan
In a triumph of my own sense of adventure over caution, I went to view “The Lost City” in an actual movie house.
Oh, how I’ve missed it.
“The Lost City,” a derivative, yet moderately entertaining romantic adventure comedy stars Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum — with a cameo by überstar Brad Pitt.
She writes those steamy romantic adventure novels. Tatum is the hunk who is on the cover of them.
She gets kidnapped by a character played by Daniel Radcliffe of all people, and taken to a tropical isle in the Atlantic.
Tatum with the help of Pitt — at least for a short while — follows to rescue her. So too, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, who plays Bullock’s agent.
It’s sort of a combo of two movies you surely know, but to find out which ones they are, you will need to listen to my podcast above. Which also provides more details.
