Classic survivalist movie!
1 February 2005 | by (Shawnee, OK) – See all my reviews

This movie is great for many reasons and anyone who knows anything about survivalist issues will enjoy it. Most liberals will hate this one for it sure tells it like it is.

Based loosely on the paperback book series: THE SURVIVALIST. Railsback brings to life the hero and Marjoe Gortner plays the perfect over the top villain as usual.

There is violence and a brief nude scene with Blakely which really does lift the film for its own reasons.

If you are a fan of big government or dislike survivalists...stay away from this one.

If you like holocaust survival movies or like to see what survivalists are really like.. check this one out. I do hope they will put this one out on DVD someday.
