Customer Reviews

A good horror movie, very entertaining.
Josh G
Just don't go into this expecting it to be any deeper, any more intriguing, than say the next 'Scream' or 'Scary Movie.'

I want the hour and a half back of my life that I wasted watching this stupid movie.

I just finished watching Chernobyl Diaries. I saw there were mixed reviews but I thought I would give it a shot. The beginning was your typical young travellers going thru Europe and one of them finds someone to take them on this big adventure.Once they get to the Chernobyl area, things begin falling apart and I must say from that point on ,I was hooked. The movie did exactly what it was suppose to do ,I really felt engrossed in what was going on and uncomfortable. In other words, it delivered.

I'll give it 2 stars for the simple fact that the first 15 minutes or so of the film is decent. The setting is original but that's pretty much it.
If you've seen The Hills Have Eyes 1 or 2, then you've seen this movie also. Any movie goer will be able to predict who dies next in the group with astonishing accuracy. Many of the scenes in the movie are just simply ridiculous and obviously meant to prolong the storyline. It would have been a good 45 minute short film but the director saw fit to include another 45 minutes of cliche 'Hills Have Eyes' horror into the movie.

(Slight spoiler alert)
I began losing interest in the movie when a bear comes blazing down the hallway but what did the movie in for me was when the ex-spetsnaz (Russian special forces) takes running off into the woods at night with just a 9mm and no light to find out what's making a strange noise. He already knew the woods were extremely dangerous at night. Why not just stay in the van until morning when he said he would fix it? To me, the scene was solely shot so that the movie would keep dragging on. Plus, why would you start blaming and yelling at the guy who quite literally, is their only hope of getting out alive. It's just common sense not to piss off the guy who can fix the van and has the only gun.
Next plot hole, the girl who was taking all the pictures see's a guy in one of here pictures looking at them from a 6 story window but says nothing to anybody about it....why? So far, theyhave only seen dogs but now she knows there are other things here also. Why wouldn't you share that information?

The film opens up with all the excitement of watching your neighbor's vacation films...which is what we are doing. Two couples are touring Eurasia. Chris (Jesse McCartney) the sensible one, and Paul (Jonathan Sadowski) the wild man are brothers. There are two lovely young ladies with them, Amanda (Devin Kelley) and Natalie (Olivia Dudley). Paul hooks up with the proverbial Russian named Uri (Dimitri Diatchenko) who offers him a backdoor tour of the abandoned city of Chernobyl (Pripyat). Another couple joins them because seven people make for a better horror film than five...except in this case.

While I was waiting for a scene out of "Hostel" or something interesting to happen, it didn't happen. Instead the van breaks down (it would be a quick movie if it didn't) and our group of tourists are stuck in a restricted area with no communication. The movie has that jittery hand held camera action to it, which I have grown to hate. To make the thrills cheaper, they turn out the lights and have everyone scream in terror. Oh, Chris has a boo-boo on his leg.

Eventually the film budget allows them to use lighting and then they run the credits.

F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

***Possible Plot Spoiler**** This film is similar to "Quarantine" in that you have to wait until the very end to get a glimpse of what is causing the terror. And by end, I mean followed by a credit roll.

Not a bad movie. The fact that a creepy place like Pripjat could indeed work very well as the location of a horrorfilm seems to have evaded all sorts of moviemakers for the last 25 years. So it was about time that someone took notice. The problem here is, they could have done so much - imagine this abandoned city, perhaps mutation of animals and nature through radiation from the reactors, or maybe a cover-up story by the government etc. but no! I'm not gonna spoil who or what the villains are, but I have to say this: if this is really all that the filmmakers could come up with, man, my dead grandpa would have had more imagination !
If there wasn't this terrible lack of originality, it could have been a truly great movie. But there are lots of films that are much worse, so if you are able to look beyond the (very) average storyline you might still enjoy it. At least the setting is perfect.

The idea of an "extreme tour" of an abandoned city is a good one, this city being Pripyat, which was home to the workers and their families that ran the Chernobyl reactor, up until the disaster in 1986 which led to its abandonment. A group of young tourists go in a van to see this place but are turned away at the checkpoint due to "maintenance". Their tour guide, however, knows more than one way into the place, so the group gets to see the abandoned city, but something else is going on and they're stranded when someone or something tampers with their van. The good bits are that the film is creepy and the atmopshere is good. The bad bits is that the film becomes increasingly clumsy and events are a bit beyond belief as the film rolls on toward the end. Yeah, it's a movie, and things are not necessarily meant to be believed. As the surviving members flee for their lives from mostly unseen assailants and you realize where they actually are, it's a bit shocking, but the ending itself is just a bit too ridiculous. Overall, it's worth a watch, not great but definitely passable. 3 out of 5 stars.
