Survival Movie Suggestion: Heatstroke (2014)

By Timothy Gamble
Maisie Williams in Heatstroke (2014)
If you are into movies with a survival-type theme, let me suggest Heatstroke (2014). I watched it recently because one of the stars is Maisie Williams, who you might know from Game of Thrones or her appearances on Doctor Who. It was surprisingly good once the action started. 

The story, without giving away any spoilers, is two women are lost in the desert grasslands of southern Africa, battling nature (predators, snakes, scorpions, brutal heat, lack of water), while trying to avoid, and later escape from, some real bad guys. The movie does start off a bit slow with family drama (teenage girl angry with her divorced parents and her dad's girlfriend), which is used to set up why they are in Africa. But after about 15 minutes or so, it finally gets to the action and gets much, much better. If you are into survival movies, check this one out.
