I watched the movie “Survivor” because I am a fan of Pierce Brosnan. However, I only like him if he’s the good guy. I’ve been following Pierce Brosnan’s career since the 1980s when he starred in the TV series “Remington Steele” and in my humble opinion, he’s just not a very good bad guy. So I was a tad bit disappointed when I realized he had been cast as the bad guy in this film.
A foreign service officer (Milla Jovovich) is framed for a terrorist bombing. She learns of a deadly plot, another bombing, and obviously has to stop it from happening. Her problem is that there’s a deadly assassin (Pierce Brosnan) who’s trying to stop her!
I rate this film 3 out of 5 stars because the cast showed up, they stood on their marks, and they said their lines. OK. And because Pierce Brosnan was in it.
It could have been an intense action movie. It could have been a riveting thriller that kept you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end. It could have had a better more convincing script and better acting.
Just so people don’t think my rating is too harsh, I have proof that my rating is very generous.
