Trivia

The nuclear bomb scene was filmed in the basement where 'Fight Club' was filmed. The bomb could not be carried down to the basement, so the crew filmed the bomb sequence at the sound stage. See more »

Right on the mark on certain issues
11 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of people like the film who've I've spoken with. The film came out on DVD a couple weeks ago and it's right on the money on certain issues like gas prices and Wall Street.

Who could have imagined the chaos we are in these days? But this film really nails on the topics of greed and lack of human decency. It's almost scary reading the attacks on this film but then you realize the critics keep neglecting (or purposefully) exclude what the central point of the film: God.

All the other issues take a back seat to God. And that's what the film is driving at.

We're living in age where people would rather glamorize a serial killer film than give props to a film that attempts to prove God exists.
