I didn’t really know what to expect but given the inclusion of Phythian and O’Hennessy, I figured this movie would be an out and out action fest. And although the action is quite good, this movie is first and foremost a horror thriller. The film has a few action scenes at the start, but when it really gets moving, the film is slowly paced to build the suspense. Details are revealed gradually and characters disappear as you try and figure out what is going on. All this setup lets you get a chance to learn about the various characters in the film. And one thing you will notice about this is the great diversity in the cast. This seems to be something that Evolutionary Films does very well and Tribal Get Out Alive is no different.The main character (and best fighter) is a female and you have several prominent female and minority characters round out the cast. It really is nice to see movies (including the fun I Am Vengeance: Retaliation) that aren’t afraid to give females prominent roles, and make them badass fighters as well.
