I read about this expedition/adventure when it was on, but only now
caught it on TV. Strange there's no reviews on this on IMDb.
When I looked at the TV timetable, I had to come online to make sure
this was only two 45 minute episodes. It felt really short, considering
most travel series have at least six episodes and this expedition
covering two years and it really was this short. Then again, is this a
travel show or a feature length documentary as it's stated here it's 96
minutes. It's also a bit difficult to criticize the short length
considering the expedition itself was of course the main interest, not
necessarily making a TV show from it. That's what I assume anyway.
In any case, the documentary feels as if it only scratches the surface.
It's interesting, well paced - you want to keep watching, but still not
that much really happens. What happens on screen seem somewhat random.
Some scenes being a bit on the extreme side, like preparing/eating a
monkey or digging a larvae out of ones scalp. On the other hand you
don't really get to know who Ed Stafford even is, there's no background
covered, nothing. Only quickly mentioned he's a former soldier.
There's very little shown how they put up a camp in the evening, how
they stack up with supplies or food, did they never even have a flu. I
mean there's so much that could happen during two years of Amazon
expedition, but you only see very little.
I'm sure there was so much going on behind the scenes here, easily
enough to fill a few more episodes. I came online afterwards to check
some details (Staffords tooth appearing and disappearing for example),
and came upon a few interesting clips on his video diary. I need to
check them thru later, because quickly it looks as if all the
interesting stuff is there, rather than in this documentary. May have
to check the book too at some point.
What comes to Staffords charisma on screen, he's not really Michael
Palin or any of the popular travel show hosts. He's OK and clear with
this words, but he's not really a TV host. I'd say at times he even
seems a bit on the loony side, but can't really blame him, it takes a
certain character to do such a journey and the clips him talking are so
short, you don't really get to know him during these 90 minutes.
In the end I feel this expedition should've had a better delivery on
screen, considering it's really an amazing achievement. This
documentary does not give it full credit.
