Explorer John Hemming criticized the movie's publicity for claiming that Fawcett was one of Britain's greatest explorers, arguing that this was an insult to the many true explorers, and that Fawcett was a racist , a " nutter ", and a dangerous incompetent who "never discovered anything", but caused the loss of many lives.

Views Read Edit View history. He thought that the story might be based on a real city that existed deep in the Amazon rainforest. And if anyone could find the lost city of Z, it was Fawcett — a famed explorer and surveyor with a half-dozen trips through the Amazon under his belt.
He had also served as an artilleryman in the British military, fought in World War I, and worked as a spy in Morocco. To this day, parts of the Amazon are largely unmapped. His pack horse was injured and he was forced to shoot it. He then contracted a dangerous illness deep in the jungle and had to stumble back to civilization wracked with fever.
But with the financial support of a group of London-based investors, Fawcett set out five years later for a second attempt. Fawcett hoped that by only bringing two people with him, he would be able to travel light and slip past any hostile tribes. The trio set out into the rainforest. In late May, Fawcett wrote a letter to his wife from an encampment he had created on his earlier expedition. In the letter, he reported that things were going well and assured her that success was close at hand.
But it was the last message anyone ever received from Fawcett. Months went by with no news of the expedition.
Rescue attempts were mounted, but none turned up any evidence of what happened. It seemed that Percy Fawcett had simply disappeared into the jungle. Fawcett wrote that he was told repeatedly that the natives of the area were violent toward outsiders. This was the theory of the Kalapo tribe, who have an oral tradition of three white men visiting the area where they live.
