I don't sit down to watch a film just to find things to later complain about. I'm not Dr. Phil so won't comment on the characters relationships with their families and I'm not a linguistic expert so can't comment on the languages spoke but I am a horror fan so I can tell you that I found it jumpy :)
There ye go!
Chernobyl diaries is just a good film to be enjoyed for what it is. It doesn't rely on major blockbuster effects, which tbh I'm sick of. Too many films now are all sfx and not decent scare factor. For a change, the audience are given the courtesy of a raw film. If you want explosions and shiny gadgets to tell you that a film is amazing then this is not for you. If you want to feel like you are actually there in the town with them ( I liked the camera work ) then you'll like it. Just chill out and enjoy the movie for what it is. Entertainment.
