While it will keep you suitably entertained, Survivor doesn't really bring anything new to the genre. At least director James McTeigue moves the story along at a gripping pace.

June 24, 2015
Unusually gritty and grounded, this terrorism thriller avoids the pitfalls of most overwrought action movies by creating characters and action situations that are unusually believable, even if the plot itself feels badly undercooked.

Survivor is 96 minutes of rip-roaring action, with heavyweight actors managing to paper over some of the glaring plot holes with their performances.

It's all thoroughly ludicrous, yet strangely watchable ...

It is slow and unexciting but brightened up by Frances de la Tour as a wheelchair-bound MI5 tech genius: good to see the secret service supporting oldies in the workplace.
May 8, 2020
A thriller that lines up decent actors for a credulity straining affair that aims to honor American law enforcement for stopping terrorist attacks post-9/11, but winds up trivializing their job in the process.

May 8, 2020
Stuffed with endless chase scenes which never seem to generate any actual suspense, the film at least benefits from the presence of its charismatic leads.
May 10, 2019
Firmly within the so-bad-it's-alright genre, Survivor is a beast of a simpler time. Brosnan and his moustache are fine, but nothing else really is.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 10, 2018
A excessively convoluted thriller...

Ultimately, Survivor is not so much high-octane action as a slow fizzle.

April 6, 2016
Survivor has very little to ride on; succumbing to action-genre-conformism, the film almost takes itself too seriously in a genre that works best when it doesn't belittle the intelligence of its audience.

Brosnan has a good time hamming it up as a heartless assassin, but why Jovovich is forced to spend the whole film darting around with black smudges on her face is a mystery.

Survivor is an absurd film that would have done better by not taking itself so seriously.

Reaching the end of this you'll feel like you survived something.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to laugh out loud at several points during the press screening of Survivor, but at least I wasn't the only one.

Survivor thought it was a film with a deep, purposeful message about the current state of immigration and counter-terrorism. I almost feel sorry for it. Almost.

Brosnan is out of place as a grizzled bad guy, but then it's hard to blame him, because he has nothing to play.
June 24, 2015
There's a reason you've probably never heard of it.

June 7, 2015
Good call by Emma Thompson, who baled out at the eleventh-hour from this copper-bottomed terrorist-themed stinker. If only the others had her foresight.

[A] by-the-numbers thriller.
