THE SURVIVOR is an oddball B-movie which appears to be a badly put-together mish-mash of other, better movies, namely PREDATOR and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. An overacting Richard Moll plays the usual bad guy who kidnaps the president (played by old-timer Richard Herd, whom you may recognise from ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN and THE CHINA SYNDROME), and only a rebel has the power to tackle him. Most of this is made up of routine jungle action with some sci-fi tropes added to the mix. The lack of decent characterisation really hurts it, and the budget is simply too low to do the material justice.
