Goose eggs and then some

Lame Survivor

Description from
A Foreign Service Officer (Milla Jovovich) newly posted to the American embassy in London is charged with stopping terrorists from getting into the US. After surviving a vicious attack on the embassy, she finds herself framed for crimes she didn't commit and racing to elude assassins while trying to clear her name and stop a large-scale terrorist attack set for New Year's Eve. SURVIVOR is directed by James McTeigue and also stars Pierce Brosnan, Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster.
Drat! I interrupted my binge-watching Aguila Roja (streaming on Netflix) only to waste 1 and ½ hours of my time on this lamest of lame movie. Why Milla? You are not a has-been yet like most of the cast. Why? And what is Benno Fürmann doing in this movie? His acting talent is wasted just standing all the time doing nothing nor saying much. I guess he and the cast needed the money.

The dialogue is lame, the acting by EVERYONE specially Angela Bassett is phoned-in, the story is tired, trite, and oh so 90s. A few explosions do not make a thriller. Run, Kate, Run is moronic and the supposed to be the best assassin makes mistake after mistake the entire movie. Gaah! Writing about it makes my head hurt. The director and writers should be charged with a crime against humanity for creating this piece of garbage.

Please please, avoid this ugly horrid movie. You'll thank me.
