Survivor

Critics Consensus

Borrowing heavily from better films in service of a predictable story, Survivor will struggle to sustain the interest of even the most avid action thriller fans.

Critic Reviews for Survivor

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (47)

  • A thriller that lines up decent actors for a credulity straining affair that aims to honor American law enforcement for stopping terrorist attacks post-9/11, but winds up trivializing their job in the process.

  • Stuffed with endless chase scenes which never seem to generate any actual suspense, the film at least benefits from the presence of its charismatic leads.

    May 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Survivor is the kind of film that relies on characters doing everything in a needlessly complicated way.

  • It's a lumberingly dated kind of spy thriller, convoluted without ever being intriguing - and an insufficient number of bangs for your buck.

  • Oh, how you'll laugh at the dialogue, at the plot and - most of all - at Pierce Brosnan's moustache, which is so hilarious it deserves a film of its own.

  • Pierce Brosnan embarks on the world's most tedious killing spree in this forgettable espionage drama

    Leave it to Cinemax Taiwan to air the only action/espionage movie in existence where Milla Jovovich doesn't kick even a little bit of ass. Milla is a mild-mannered government employee who inexplicably goes on the run after getting framed for terrorist crimes she didn't commit, and dubiously mustachioed Pierce Brosnan is hot on her very pedestrian trail. Eh.

    Though it's a tad formulaic, Survivor is a fairly solid espionage thriller that's exciting and full of intrigue. The story follows a security expert at America's London embassy who's targeted by a terrorist group and must go on the run after she's framed for murder. Starring Milla Jovovich, Dylan McDermott, and Pierce Brosnan, the cast is pretty good; however, the performances aren't much more than serviceable. Also, the plot is rather cliché; an agent going rogue, pursued by their own people as well as the terrorists. Yet the storytelling is able to keep the mystery engaging and the chases suspenseful. Survivor, while it has its flaws, is entertaining and action packed.

    Nothing really noteworthy about this film. Kind of boring for a thriller and the writing isn't particularly good.

    Imagine James Bond, license to kill, gone to work for the bad guys, as Brosnan plays an deadly assassin chasing a U.S. government employee (Jovovich, simply a damsel in distress in this piece) all over London. The flaw in the work is that he's got to miss her, and miss her over and over again, for there to be any film to watch at all. Nobody's perfect. Let that little imperfection slide and its still a decent action piece.
