The Survivalist (2015) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
I must say seeing the poster print work with it’s marketing quotes made me almost not watch The Survivalist (2015) as typically when something is marked so good; it’s horrible. I’ve saw good and bad reviews on this film and some reviews which you’d just want to ask “what hate group is that reviewer with”. The Survivalist (2015) is not a perfect film, and it is a very beyond slow paced film, and yes they’re camera shots in this film that will make some people cringe; though there is a whole lot worst is most cartoons and about every film on the market now days.
The Survivalist (2015) is set in a starving world and some things take place within the movie that you’d see in The Walking Dead, and all apocalyptic based films; this one is artistic. This film is very dark and set’s in a realistic atmosphere, the acting is beyond superb. I believe this film to be a very well put together movie, though yes I do have very mixed feelings on some of what was to be saw; but…. in a world of darkness you will see darkness.
