Storyline

In the pursuit of self-discovery and authentic experiences, the Israeli backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg, meets a cryptic Austrian geologist in La Paz, Bolivia, and captivated by his engrossing stories of lost tribes, uncharted adventures and even gold, decides to follow him, circa 1981. Without delay and accompanied by the good friends, Kevin, an American photographer, and Marcus, a Swiss teacher, they join an expedition led by their seasoned trail-leader, deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rainforest. However, as the endless and inhospitable jungle separates the inexperienced team, before long, Yossi will find himself stranded in the depths of a nightmarish environment crawling with formidable and tireless adversaries. How can one escape this green maze? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

Karl: This is the last frontier on earth. Still alive, still wild. Not for long. We don't like wild. We don't like untamed. We're obsessed with control. So, we ruin the whole planet, and pride ourselves for creating stupid national parks with stupid rangers in stupid hats to protect what's already gone. Why? Cause we're scared. The jungle shows us what we really are. We're nothing. We're a joke. God fucked up.

Okay...If You Don't Mind Your Adventure With a Bible Study
5 November 2017 | by redrobin62-321-207311See all my reviews

I liked this film. It wasn't great, and you can see the director directing, but it was pretty good. Everyone on screen did as they were paid to do. I wonder if they could've done with less CGI in the picture, though, as some of it seemed a little unreal.

The religious tie-ins at the end of the movie weren't expected, but taken from Yoshi's religious background and his point of view, it was believable. A little heavy handed, but believable.

Lastly, if you're a fan of horror, this movie might appeal to you as there are several horror tropes within in - eerie silence, darkness, things that go bump in the night, blood, stalkers, etc.
