Stupid! Stupid! Stupid move!
26 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I seriously tried my best to give this movie the benefit of the doubt. The last zombie movie I saw was Rise of the Zombies. Rise of the Zombies was a zombie movie with incredibly stupid things like zombies that can swim and climb the Golden Gate Bridge with their bare hands. So when I began to watch "Survival" I thought, "No matter what, this can't possibly be as dumb as Rise of the Zombies." I was right. This isn't as dumb as Rise of the Zombies. But Survival is only slightly less dumb.

I wanted to give the actors some credit. For the majority of actors, English is not their first language. And it is difficult sounding authentic in a language that's not your own when you're acting in a movie. However, the script and story were terrible. No matter how hard they tried, the script and story just tore down whatever attempts they made to showcase their acting abilities.

The movie just was a SyFy channel inspired movie. It's got the music, the setting, the story, the script, the extremely stupid behavior from characters, and even a little CGI blood to remind me of a SyFy channel movie. Stupid stuff in this movie just had me shaking my head. A trained former Navy Seal/mercenary sees two handguns and two AK47 lying beside dead bodies. What does he do? No only does he take the handguns without taking extra ammo, he leaves both AK47s. Or how about the mercenary with the AK47 that sees the zombie coming toward him who has plenty of time to shoot deciding to just stand there and get eaten? And how about the fact that the zombies attack our protagonists with machetes and pitchforks? They are supposed to be in some sort isolated forest near a biological research facility in Poland. Where are the machetes coming from? Are there sugar cane trees in Poland now? This movie is a 100 minutes long. If you took a drink of alcohol every time you saw something in this movie that was stupid beyond belief, you'd have alcohol poisoning by the 45 minute mark. I knew this movie was going to be stupid within the first 5 minutes. But I was wishing it wasn't going to be SyFy channel level of stupid. Looks like I definitely didn't get my wish.
