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.

Daniel Radcliffe's Best Perfomance!!!
17 March 2018 | by BatmanFunReviewsSee all my reviews

A group of friends join a guide for a trek into the Bolivian jungle, searching for an Indian village. The men soon realize that the jungle is a difficult place to be. Jungle benefits from an incredible dramatic perfomance from Daniel Radcliffe, a talented cast and an amazing survival tale. Some scenes are brutal and breath taking like the ones with the ants, the snake and most of all the one with his head. As far as flaws go? That scene with the girl in the Jungle felt kinda rushed and not even needed to be in the film since it did nothing to the story also some of the dreams he had were kinda cheesy like the Casino or the Burger but some others like his relationship with his parents or his religion was something that was needed and adapted him as a character. Overall an amazing and interesting survival film with Radcliffe at his best. (9.5/10)
