Rotten Tomatoes ain’t always right

As I was surfing around on Netflix I noticed this film from 2015 named Survivor with Pierce Brosnan and Milla Jovovich in the main roles. It sounded to good to be true with this film already being available on Netflix so I looked around and noticed that it only had an 8% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 5,6 rating on IMDB.

Pierce Brosnan plays the bad guy in Survivor

The 8% score on Rotten Tomatoes made me think that this was a film not at all worth watching. But, the IMDB rating of 5,6 is a quite average score, and you will find lots of films that I like with such a score, and lots of films that I do not like with such a score or a much higher score. Even though I was hesitating I finally decided to give Survivor a go, especially since I do like good action films, and it did not take more than 10 minutes before I decided to watch all the film, because this was a film after my taste!

I must say that Survivor is not a film I would watch again, but it share some similarities with Jason Bourne films, except from the fact that a lady is the person everyone is hunting for. And to be honest, even though I liked the Jason Bourne films I would probably not watch those over again either. So this is not a classic, but if you want to watch a good action film and maybe see lots of clips from the beautiful city of London, then Survivor is great for that purpose and it for sure deserves better than its current 8% score at Rotten Tomatoes.

The film is not ultraviolent either, but it is simply tense and you will want to watch it all the way to the end as you get going, so if you want to know more about the film or just watch it, read more on how to watch it online on Netflix in the current article.

For those who want to know more about the film then you can either watch the trailer, or read more about the film at IMDB.
