The Reviews for The Survivalist (2015) 720p


Captivating masterpiece...Reviewed bypulsinger-1Vote: 10/10

Although I have been reading reviews from other users on IMDb for almost 9 years, I've decided to finally write one. Why to start now ? Because - simply said - this movie has impressed me so much, that I almost feel obliged to promote this movie, which definitely deserves much more attention.

I have seen The Survivalist, among others, at Zurich Film Festival and it kept me haunting - in a good way - for the rest of the festival, where it overshadowed other decent European pictures. And to be honest, I don't understand the strong negative reviews from other users: have they been watching the same movie ???

I remember vividly the small theater packed with people, all breathing silently and watching with thrill and excitement from the opening scene to the final scene of the movie. Because, this is what the movie is exactly about: the (very solid and strong) story is slowly revealed without being predictable (unlike thousands of other Hollywood movies), amazing and unique camera shots from various angles, very well-played characters and - finally - creating one of the most and authentic atmosphere of post-apocalyptic/dystopian future that I have ever seen in movies of this genre. And all this was created without the need of any insertion of musical background - which is a very well-known Hollywood strategy for evoking cheap and pseudo-emotions in movie viewers.

All in all, if you want to have a captivating and stunning visual experience coupled with a solid, thrilling story in a as-real-as-it- gets dystopian atmosphere, go and watch it.

If you rather want an instant forgettable movie with a predictable story and one-dimensional polished characters, make yourself popcorn with soda and watch Transformers.

A gloomy but fascinating illustration of the instinctive brutality of humanity's will to survive.Reviewed byColin Lomas (colinlomasox)Vote: 7/10

As a species, us humans have a curious fondness for grim and gloomy art. From skull tattoos to death metal bands, there is an unrelenting fascination with the macabre and morbid, and films are no exception. It's surprisingly difficult to recall a genuinely gloomy film which didn't get inexorable approval. From the true life horrors of Hotel Rwanda and The Elephant Man through to the fictional bleakness of The Road, Nil by Mouth and Tyrannosaur, there is something peculiarly fascinating about watching unrelenting despair and observing the malevolence of humanity on the big screen.

Intentionally set in an undefined year of the near future in an indeterminate part of the world, the human population has grown exponentially to the point of saturation; food is at a premium and from the movies sporadic intimations, society has regressed back to packs of hunter/gatherers. The survivalist (as we never learn his true name) has managed to create a small farmstead in the middle of a dense wood just large enough to keep himself self-sufficient. When mother and daughter couple Kathryn (Fouere) and Milja (Goth) appear at his door asking for food and shelter, the survivalist's controlled unaccompanied existence is threatened as his morals become confused; to keep himself safe or to assist his visitor's needs.

A sound method to keep costs low when producing a movie is to isolate the action to a restricted area, keep the number of actors limited and construct a simple and focused story line. The risk with this technique is that the movie becomes more of a theatrical production where each moment becomes intensified and less freedom is given to procrastination. It is unsurprising therefore that the lead character is given to an actor with an education in walking the boards. The film devotes a significant amount of time to building McCann's character, devoid of dialogue and with extensive intense close ups.

Due to the utter desperation of The Survivalist's plot, it requires total commitment to its audience and at times starts to meander yet manages to pull itself back every time just before the bleakness becomes tiresome.

There are enough plot and character surprises to keep the movie interesting, the acting is excellent and the limited scope of environment constantly feels claustrophobic but never artistically restrictive. The Survivalist demonstrates the way, once the whiteboard of social acceptability has been wiped clean, intimacy and sex become acceptable tradeable commodities.

The Survivalist is grim, depressing and about the least life- affirming film you're likely to see this year. Yet it is tense, wonderfully acted and a fascinating illustration of the instinctive brutality of humanity's will to survive.

Surviving - but aloneReviewed bythekarmicnomadVote: 8/10

Some unknown disaster has struck the planet causing a severe food shortage, it's every man for himself. The title character is held up all on his own in the woods, subsiding on the meagre scraps he can grow and repels anyone who encroaches on his land.

Then a woman and her, rather plain looking daughter, show up asking to trade. The Survivalist, devoid of all human contact apart from the marauders he kills, cannot resist the pull of some female companionship.

This film has a very small stage, concentrating entirely on the three central characters. Dialogue is minimal but affective, the Survivalist is especially grumpy and non-communicative.

There is a lot of nudity, expect dong shots and people washing their bits in the river and some very grubby sex scenes.

The scope of the story is small but the stakes for the characters are high. It has a poke around at desperation and necessity. Would you pimp your daughter out for a bowl of soup? I suppose it depends how hungry you are.

Well made, well acted, small budget but clever lighting makes it look gritty rather than cheap.

A very good, low octane watch.
