If you liked that one you should watch Southern Comfort....a National Guard unit lost in Louisiana. Same concept and very possible.

I enjoyed that film very much...Not sure how they're going to make a sequal. I did enjoy the original though. Omega Man is bleak though.

There were SOOOOO many opportunities to grab the barrel of the Redneck's shotgun for someone who wasn't willing to be a victim.
At one point, Voight could've literally shoved it into the other redneck's face, causing Mr Pretty Mouth to kill his cousin. From there, it would have been child's play to disarm the perv & who knows, maybe Ole Ned could have kept his virginity
Movies & TV have conditioned people to getting used to being pushed around by people with guns, when in fact, there are LOTS of people out there who are perfectly willing to take them away.
As a green as grass Rookie, my 1st Training Officer told me something I'll never forget.
He asked me if I had a file one day. I said yes & he ordered me to go home & file off the front sight of my pistol.
When I asked him why anyone would do something that stupid, he explained that there were lots of tough guys out there who were not afraid of guns & who would be happy to take mine away from me.
It hurts a lot less when they stick it up your rear end without the sight, he explained . . . and I learned that he was right.
Pointing a gun at someone looks like a great way to insure compliance, BUT . . . there are some people out there who can turn that around quickly & I'm betting the Deliverance "squeal like a hog" guy wished he or his buddy had known that ! ! !

Ok... not 100% survival centered but good flicks about returning alive.

The flight of the phoenix (original is better IMHO but the sequel isn't awful, just to typical/PC to me)

Maybe The man from snowy river as well?
Maybe also Damnation Alley (if it hasn't been mentioned already?)

One of my favorite when I was a kid was "Iron Will". About a kid entering a sled dog race to save the family farm. Survival wasn't the main focus but a pretty good wilderness movie.

I like "Into the wild" and 127. They show how important to think before you do something.

Default not enough

there is not enough realistic survival movies i wish they would make more. a lot of people that are eager to learn about survival could greatly benefit from them.

"A cry in the wild" 1990 is the movie of Hatchet - screenplay by the author - obviously not the detail of the novel but it's very good.

Spawned a pair of crappy sequels that could have been great but by the third was more about mumbo jumbo than legit survival skills

If you haven't heard of "Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen, definitely look into it. It should be required reading for every kid in America.

I liked "Hannah" too. Not quite SHTF, but fun to watch.

I loved that somebody mentioned Damnation Alley. Saw it as a kid and would love to watch it again but can't find it on DVD (only VHS so far). Almost any zombie movie is great for survival. A good zombie flick is not about the zombies but what people have to do to survive (even though The Walking Dead is a TV show it's one to watch). There were too many posts to read them all but did anyone mention Tom Hanks' Castaway? One other film that may have been mentioned is The Professional. It's not about wilderness survival but definitely about urban survival and doing what it takes to stay alive.

Good thread and everyone had great suggestions!
