Sometimes a movie just doesn't work. There are plenty of more successful films with less going for them than James McTeigue's Survivor which stars Milla Jovovich as a Foreign Service Agent in London who uncovers a terrorist plot and spends most of the movie running not only from British authorities but a high-class assassin (Pierce Brosnan) responsible for the deaths of her co-workers.

For an action-thriller Survivor is a bore. Brosnan barely registers a pulse as the cold-blooded killer. Jovovich is fine as the woman on the run. The plot, while indistinguishable from any number of action films (other than Jovovich's specific job), is passable enough but there's simply no magic on-screen leading to an underwhelming and underachieving movie that's no so much awful as completely forgettable.

Available on both Blu-ray and DVD extras include a single behind-the-scenes featurette and deleted scenes.
