Great Concept, Bad Execution

I was very upset coming out of this movie because the concept of it was really good, but there was so many things wrong with it making it a complete fail. To start it off the two most characters that you like the most end up being the first two to go and the worst character is the only on to survive. The worst part of the film is how many times they contradicted themselves throughout, for example they first state that 50,000 people lived in apartments in the city...then when they're in an apartment they say this is 1 out of 1,000 apartments in the city....so 50 people lived in each apartment? The movie was so short so I think with even just 30 more minutes of expanding most of the scenes, that alone would have made the movie so much better.

People are going to bash this movie for not being the first of its kind of course. Some parts are predictable but the suspense in this film is definitely on point. A few scary parts as well. By the end of this I think you will be satisfied. nice horror flick

This type of movie has been done before. Dumb (attractive ) U.S. tourist decide to break the rules and end up dead. There now you have seen the movie and saved ten bucks. Go see Avengers or wait for some really good and scary movies coming soon. My favorite part of this movie was watching the previews to upcoming movies.

Not as scary as I was expecting

Had the makings of a good movie, but ultimately dropped the ball. Not enough gore, not enough of the jump outta your seat scenes. Was disappointed with the choice of "evil element" going after the characters...I don't wanna ruin it for anyone who might actually go watch. I am glad I used a discount deal to watch it, but still disappointed I lost out on sleep to do so! Better to wait for it to come out on DVD, unless you can watch it for free! Lol

Do you fear the fallout?

This film follows a group of friends who are vacationing in Europe, and go on a tour of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor and the abandoned city. They think they are alone, but are they really? Is there anything lurking in the forest, the houses, the buildings? Would you go to a city where there was a nuclear fallout? You will have to check out this movie if you want answers to these questions. "Chernobyl Diaries" is set in the city of Prypiat where the workers of the plant once lived, played, and had children. Actors such as Jesse McCartney, Jonathan Sadowski, Olivia Dudley, Nathan Phillips, and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal star in this one. If you want to be scared, maybe go out on a date with a significant other then i suggest this flick. I enjoyed it, and i was by myself. The reviews have been negative but it was an entertaining movie which kept me guessing throughout the 1 and 1/2 hours. It had a neat setting, and good plot to the story. Go see it, it was a fun afternoon spent.
