It’s the holidays so I have a bit of time to catch up on my film list. Oh and someone pointed out that I should call Spoiler Alert on some of these reviews. Sorry if I annoyed anyone!  🙂

Chernobyl Diaries

Released: 2012

Directed by: Bradley Parker

Written by: Oren Peli (screenplay) & Carey Van Dyke (screenplay)

Starring: Jesse McCartney, Jonathan Sadowski & Olivia Dudley

Plot: Six tourists hire an extreme tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During their exploration, they soon discover they are not alone.

For: Cool poster / Uri character is fun / The abandoned city is well done

Against: Uses a documentary type film style, but never explains why, or who is holding the camera / Very boring, it takes 55 mins for anything interesting to happen / Why do they find Natalie alive? The eviscerated Uri, but she doesn’t have a scratch! / The ending is ridiculously stupid! / A good idea wasted.

Favourite Scene: The group gets back to find the van gutted and the video of what happened / Natalie gets taken again (and the creepy kid)

Rating: 1.5 Lukes
