"Chernobyl" is a horror movie with an interesting storyline: a group of Americans go on extreme tourism to Chernobyl and discover a dreadful secret about a place that was supposed to be inhabited. The first half is scary and very realistic, and I believe that most of the youths has one day made something crazy by impulse that he or she will recall for the rest of his or her life. Even in Rio de Janeiro, there is extreme tourism through the slums.
The problem is that there are stupid decisions that almost ruin the movie. For example, Paul insists in shouting the name of Chris in a dangerous location. Or leave traumatized Natalie alone while they go to his a boy. Anyway, the story and the performances are not bad. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Chernobyl"
