Film Review: ‘Survivor’

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Milla Jovovich plays a falsely accused Foreign Service Officer who works to thwart a terrorist plot as she runs from the authorities in “Survivor,” a sturdy wrong-woman thriller that feels grotesque in its citations of 9/11 and other intimations of real-world import, but also steals a few good moves from “North by Northwest” and “The Fugitive” for a solid middle section. A generic title and low buzz factor are hurdles for this day-and-date release, a meat-and-potatoes offering from helmer James McTeigue (“V for Vendetta,” “The Raven”).

The prologue, in which two Americans in Afghanistan are captured after a helicopter crash, gets the proceedings off to an unpromising start; the poorly staged action and a lack of background density give off the vibe of a videogame cut scene. One of the men is identified as a potential bargaining chip, and his fellow soldier is quickly immolated.

Cut to London, several months later, »

Survivor Review

26 May 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During a more than 60-year acting career, Michael Caine has had a lot of highs and lows. One of his most embarrassing moments was a supporting role in the reviled sequel Jaws: The Revenge – a film that came out the same year he picked up an Academy Award for Hannah and Her Sisters. In one of the actor’s most enduring interview quotes, Caine said of the sequel that he had never seen the film. “By all accounts, it is terrible,” he said. “However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.”

Caine’s droll attempt at transparency routinely came back into this reviewer’s mind during Survivor, a film that is cluttered with action movie clichés and may be most fondly remembered by its principal cast for helping them renovate their homes. Despite the presence of director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta) and thriller author »

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

The 20 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival

9 April 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We're just a week away from the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, which opens on Wednesday April 15th and runs until the 26th. As ever, the lineup is skewed toward U.S. productions, though not exclusively so, ranging from higher-profile projects with starry casts and broad ensembles to smaller, more under the radar titles from first-time directors. While the festival overall can't claim equivalent prestige with the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. Tribeca is positioned between either, both in geographic and chronological senses, and has carved out a solid niche for itself as an independent-leaning festival with a laudable agenda to foster new talent in both feature and shorts filmmaking. And this year, in addition to attracting an eclectic top-shelf jury including Dylan McDermott, Cobie Smulders, Steve Buscemi, Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Steinem, Vanessa Williams, Sheila Nevins, Debi Mazar, Minnie Driver, Andre Holland, Hank Azaria, Mamie Gummer, Mark Boal, Burr Steers, David »

It’s Jovovich Vs. Brosnan In First Trailer For Survivor

3 April 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After squaring away a significant amount of Bond movies, Pierce Brosnan still can’t shake off the action.

Bearing that in mind, will 2015 be Brosnan’s year to shine? It just may be, as he has another couple of actioners due for release, including No Escape and the subject of today’s trailer: Survivor.

Directed by James McTeigue (V For Vendetta, Ninja Assassin) the movie revolves around a Foreign Service Officer (Milla Jovovich). The target of a ruthless assassin (Brosnan) attempting to take her out for a terrorist hit she committed, she must avoid his deadly attempts, try to clear her name after being framed And stop the actual perpetrators of the attack.

James Bond goes bad in ‘Survivor’ trailer starring Pierce Brosnan, Milla Jovovich

3 April 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Since his James Bond days, Pierce Brosnan seems to alternate between being an action star in a corny thriller or a love interest in a corny comedy. Hopefully someday he’ll get another role as juicy in his one in 2010’s The Ghost Writer.

But in his latest film Survivor, he’s the good guy gone bad, playing one of the world’s top assassins, codenamed The Watchmaker. He frames a French diplomat (Milla Jovovich) for a terrorist bombing and seeks to have her killed, forcing her to go on the run and clear her name. Here’s the official synopsis:

After being mysteriously framed for a terrorist bombing, a Foreign Service Officer (Milla Jovovich) must evade government capture and death by a ruthless assassin (Pierce Brosnan) in order to stop the real perpetrators’ master—and much deadlier—plan.
