Critic Consensus: Borrowing heavily from better films in service of a predictable story, Survivor will struggle sustain the interest of even the most avid action thriller fans.

Critic Reviews for Survivor
Survivor is the kind of film that relies on characters doing everything in a needlessly complicated way.
It's a lumberingly dated kind of spy thriller, convoluted without ever being intriguing - and an insufficient number of bangs for your buck.
Oh, how you'll laugh at the dialogue, at the plot and - most of all - at Pierce Brosnan's moustache, which is so hilarious it deserves a film of its own.
Pierce Brosnan embarks on the world's most tedious killing spree in this forgettable espionage drama
Pretty much plays like a film made for basic cable that is buoyed for a while by a couple of relatively strong central performances before eventually succumbing to terminal mediocrity in its silly final scenes.
Audience Reviews for Survivor
Leave it to Cinemax Taiwan to air the only action/espionage movie in existence where Milla Jovovich doesn't kick even a little bit of ass. Milla is a mild-mannered government employee who inexplicably goes on the run after getting framed for terrorist crimes she didn't commit, and dubiously mustachioed Pierce Brosnan is hot on her very pedestrian trail. Eh.
Imagine James Bond, license to kill, gone to work for the bad guys, as Brosnan plays an deadly assassin chasing a U.S. government employee (Jovovich, simply a damsel in distress in this piece) all over London. The flaw in the work is that he's got to miss her, and miss her over and over again, for there to be any film to watch at all. Nobody's perfect. Let that little imperfection slide and its still a decent action piece.
Its great old-school escapism. An explosive, exciting and action-packed cat and mouse thriller. A clever and suspenseful treat that has Brosnan and Jovovich facing off. Pierce Brosnan is terrific, he is a one-man Terminator that raises all sorts of hell and plays a brilliantly badass villain. Milla Jovovich is sensational, she plays a different type of hero in this film and does it well. It's an engaging and solid thrill-ride that makes for a fun 96 minutes of fun.
