A former ultimate fighter in the year 2045 becomes the protector of a town that houses the world’s last remaining oil, gas, and mineral deposits, eventually challenging a group of local Russians to a cage match to determine who will take control the precious dwindling resources.
….and now, a review by an everyday person ( Beyond Media Online):
“I watched this with low expectations but was pleasantly surprised when it re orientated my point of view. I know it’s hard to accept that some good things come from Canada but there you go. Yes some of the characters are a bit cliché however that does not distract from the family that makes up the heart of this story and makes me wish that there was more to follow in a series.
This story is about hard choices in a hard world where people are the cheapest commodity. Ty Olsson who has credits from his performance of Benny in Supernatural does not disappoint and the supporting cast do what they are supposed to do very well. If you watch it you will be touched by the humanity of it’s direction and want to find out where do these lost individuals go from here. This is not a moral tale rather a tale of people muddling by in a gray and darker gray world but hoping to see the sun in a cold cold land.
To me, fiction is most successful when the characters come alive in your mind and you want to continue their stories. In that, “Survival Code” completely succeeds. And I sincerely hope that a network such as Space or Syfy feels the same way, and will use this movie as the pilot of a series, as it seems intended to be.”
Overall Rating: 8/10
