About six months ago
I was looking for blu-ray movies just for the
sake of owning some and one movie caught my
eye called Survivor. I didn't purchase it
because I was buying other items as the same
time and didn't have the money. It then went
out of my mind and I didn't get round to
buying it. I later tried to look it up online
but with so many other movies and a TV show
of the same name it was difficult to pin down.
Today I was flicking
through the television channels and noticed
it was on so I sat an watched it. I was
surprised that it came out on TV so soon
especially on an obscure channel.
I won't give the
movie a full review as that's not really what
this entry is about. It wasn't particularly
amazing but not bad either, it was okay. The
average special effects distracted some of
the good points within the story, I felt, and
would have been far better if all the
monsters were replaced by human bad guys.
It starred Kevin
Sorbo but he's more of a secondary character
to the lead played by Danielle Chuchran.
I know Kevin Sorbo as he's been in a zillion
other movies and TV shows, but I had no idea
who Danielle Chuchran was so I looked
her up. She's appeared in other things but
nothing I've seen.
What amazed me was at
one time she was going to play Katniss in The
Hunger Games one of my favourite movies.
There's a clip of her reenacting a scene from
The Hunger Games on Youtube with some
brilliant acting. Here's
Survivor on DVD.
