As the start, the plane pilot castigates Gray for smoking near the fuel tanks. Which shows he's an actor, not an aviator. AV fuel has an extremely high flash point. You could drop a lit cigarette onto AV fuel and it still wouldn't catch alight. See more »

"Survival Quest" has enough originality and inspired photography to maintain interest throughout. What separates this film from similar, inferior efforts, is the strong character development. At first, things move rather slowly, as we get to know the strangers from the city who have signed on for the survival course. Once the paramilitary squad begins stalking them, the action comes at a rapid pace. The acting is above average for a low budget film, especially Lance Henriksen and Mark Rolsten. This ranks right up there with a similar little known hunted in the woods film, "Hunter's Blood", and is recommended viewing for action fans. - MERK
