Surviving Evil Review


OK
An enjoyable B-movie vibe plus vivid characters makes this cheesy jungle thriller far more enjoyable than it should be. And as it gets increasingly ridiculous, the plot gets funnier by the moment. Although perhaps that wasn't the intention.

Unfortunately, this deal also fails. DeSouza and McElroy must now find new buyers while staying clear of other rogue groups who want the formula, and an assassin (Emily Mortimer) hired by The Lizard to return McElroy to the states.
