‘Survivor’ brings clichéd thrills

“Survivor” (PG-13, Alchemy), a taut yet hackneyed thriller about a wrongly accused fugitive with the authorities close behind, borrows heavily from “North by Northwest,” “The Bourne Identity” and “The Fugitive.” Milla Jovovich plays Kate Abbott, a recent hire at the U.S. embassy in London in charge of security. She’s good at her job, which makes her unpopular with killers who are plotting an attack on U.S. soil. The crew sends a relentless assassin (Pierce Brosnan) after her. When his plot to blow up Kate in a restaurant bombing goes awry, the terrorists try a different approach: Make her the prime suspect for the deadly blast. Contains violence and strong language.
