the lost city An example of adventure comedy able to combine Laughs and crazy situations in a strange contexthas a lot of fun and above all an easy movement and a sense of rhythm between the intentionally 2D characters and the literary suggestions that go right into the cinematic incarnation, confirming the joyful passage of the baton.

In fact, the movie managed to keep all of its references together. A disrespectful and light joy Which is pretty rare for the blockbuster genre, where adventurous and grotesque elements tend to overplay each other and get stuck within each other’s superficial boundaries.

On this ride instead you can breathe A taste of the absurd that can drag – and explode – the primordial element of the war of the sexeslooking at the building and in the mind of Tamaru in Model’s aureo In pursuit of the green stone And Hitting the limits and the absurdities of both sides below the belt, both the seasoned writer on paper (and even able to read hieroglyphs) and the muscular model, exhibited with both sly self-irony and generous commitment to Bullock’s cause. From Tatum.
