    This movie is bad. And I don’t mean by overall movie standards. This is bad by John Woo, Hong Kong action flick standards.


    For the uninitiated, most John Woo, or even Jackie Chan, movies are so-so acted, formulaic movies that move you from action scene to action scene. You accept the meh acting, and bad story to see the awesome set pieces.

    This movie is rad.

    Michael is back to being a badass-supernatural-evil-personified-force-of-nature-boogeyman.

    Chernobyl Diaries

    ★★★★

    A formulaic pseudo-found footage movie.

    It’s the movie equivalent of Kane and Lynch 2. The characters are being followed by a camera person that’s outside the plot and never acknowledged.

    This movie is all about the setting. Chernobyl/Pripyat is rad. It makes this movie feel like a really high budget STALKER fan film. But, the setting IS the movie. If Chernobyl doesn’t pique your interest, then there’s really nothing here for you. Just seven characters making bad decisions, and waiting their turn to have an emotional breakdown.

    4 stars for Uri’s Eastern Bloc rape van.
