There’s something about a perfect, man-vs.-nature a film so unbelievably satisfying. The best survival movies parallel everything to the essential elements: there are very few characters at their disposal, they have only their wits and some limited tools, and they have only one objective in mind: to remain alive. And even with so few ingredients, these films are still capable of boosting our heart rates, And yet, with so few ingredients, these films can always lift our heart rates, and give us a twinge of the existential horror that is nature’s vastness—survival films are best examples of how to make the least of the most.

The Oscar-winning epic stars of Alfonso Cuarón, Sandra Bullock, as a medical engineer whose very first space flight takes a tragic turn when space debris hits her shuttle and kills the rest of the crew. Gravity is a revolutionary technical accomplishment and a hell of a blockbuster after every thrilling second of Stone’s fight for survival.
#7 – Cast away:
Without that iconic Tom Hanks-starring entry, which is both a convincing drama about human resilience and romance between a man and a volleyball, no list of survival stories will be complete. Hanks’ everyman washes up on an uninhabited island after his plane crashes in the Pacific, and he left by himself– except for Wilson.
#8 – The road:
While the very last genre you ‘re interested in seeing right now may be “post-apocalyptic,” this atmospheric adaptation of Cormac McCarthy ‘s novel is worth the torture. Viggo Mortensen appeared as the unidentified man trying to look after his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) in the desolate wasteland that once was America. While hardly uplifting, The Road is a thrilling exploration of paternal and endurance.
#9 – The way back:

Following a daring escape, the three girls set out to go home with the authorities in pursuit, back to their homes.
#12 – Captain Philips:
Tom Hanks is the survival-film genre’s MVP. He plays the eponymous Captain Richard Phillips in this nerve-shredding thriller. This merchant mariner has been taken hostage by Somali pirates while navigating a cargo ship through the Guardafui Strait. While there’s plenty of action, maybe the most compelling aspect of the movie is watching Phillips’s recent, cautious attempts to outwit his captors.
#13 – The Grey:
This movie is based on the survival of the Alaskan wilderness after a plane crash. Yet the character Liam Neeson in The Grey has something much more disturbing to deal with — a pack of wolves that stalk him.
