Hmmm... tastes like pollo
9 March 2004 | by (in HELL) – See all my reviews

This movie was MUCH better that that Hollywood star-clogged "Alive" was.

This movie has a beginning, and and end. Alive started, and ended, on the mountain top, with nothing but pretty faces and special effects to look upon.

Survive shows who they were, , the efforts and pain of the families who tried to keep the rescue efforts alive, and this movie shows how they finally found help, and the reunion of the survivors.

The cannabalism sequences were much more realistic, and the portrayal of their physical suffering and mental torture was heartrending.

No super-fantastic feats of heorism, no profound quotes depicting the "human character", no exaggerated shows of emotion, no Hollywood cliches or head-butts, this movie shows simply, and purely, the suffering of these ordinary people, put in extraordinary circumstances, and how they come out of it alive.

But for you gore-enthusiasts, this movie DOES have one thing that will stay with me, which the "Hollywood" version doesn't.....the one scene that really out-did the "Alive" movie was when they show a body of one of the corpses.....completely stripped of flesh, but the head perfectly intact.....

How cool is that, Hollywood?
