Movie Review: Chernobyl Diaries

By | July 3, 2012

Am I the only one who feels that all the movies are boring this summer? Are Hollywood writers out of ideas? Even abroad there is nothing to look forward to except Spiderman and a movie by Adam Sandler that won’t make it to Kuwait for sure.

We really wanted to go to the cinema and watch a movie last week but the choices weren’t that encouraging. We settled on Chernobyl Diaries. The story is about a group of American tourists travelling through Europe who go into an abandoned town which housed the workers of Chernobyl Nuclear Plant and has been deserted since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 where people dropped everything and just left with minutes to spare. Only when the tourists are there, they learn that they are not alone.

Well, the movie is very predictable, nothing out of the new. The only thing that makes this movie interesting is the Chernobyl story and the abandoned town otherwise its like every other horror movie. Whenever the group think they found a way out, something goes awry and one of them dies. Yada Yada Yada.

Oh there are plenty of grotesque scenes and blood too. A daloo3a woman in the movie started crying loudly in the middle of the movie. Why she didn’t leave the movie and go cry outside instead of disturbing us all is beyond my comprehension. I don’t see myself buying this movie on DVD anytime soon, nothing worth watching again, but if you want to kill time being a little scared this is the movie to see.

    I knew it!! I knew it would suck! That’s why we went to ice age 4 which wasn’t as great as 1, 2! And it wasn’t a good idea to watch it 3d either! I left with a headache! Too many earthquake scenes a la 3d were a pain to watch
