As technology blooms, storytelling suffers. That's how I feel, anyway.
It's difficult to watch any kind of survival movie when I'm not able to root for the main character's survival.
By knowingly bestowing this death curse upon someone else, they're effectively committing murder, damning their souls with this deceptive and selfish choice.
About halfway through this picture, I began waxing nostalgic for the suspense, characterization and atmosphere of Friday The 13th, Part II.
I wasn't expecting much, since this was available on Amazon Prime (not usually a reliable indicator of quality, I've found), but this was an excellent motion picture. Not a political film so much as a story about survival and humanity.
Clever, suspenseful, insanely violent, frequently funny and very unpredictable, but, ultimately, quite depressing. I really liked it on this first viewing, but I'm not sure I'll ever watch it again.
Decent special effects and cinematography, in service of a mediocre screenplay and weak performances.
