Did You Know?


Justin Eugene Evans had two consultants: Lt. Col. Daniel Marvin, who was in command of two Special Forces units during the Vietnam War, and a CIA officer responsible for the MIR Space Station hacking during the 1980s who, unsurprisingly, preffered to go unnamed. They both educated Evans on everything from the unusual sounds made by an encrypted telephone line to the rather primitive ways the CIA hacked off-the-shelf technology and improved it for field operatives. Lt. Col. Marvin spent tremendous time educating Evans on torture techniques he used in the field of battle, but some were simply too gruesome to put in the film. The unnamed CIA consultant had also some amazing tales about hacking into the primitive computer system of the MIR, which he claimed was a PC clone made of off-the-shelf components, but mainly provided Evans with guidelines for the decor of the office seen in the movie.

An action film that can appeal to all
5 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not just your regular action movie. There's more behind the guns and fighting than the usual "shoot em up" action flick. The story line is actually well thought out rather than an excuse for more shooting and gore. Great for those looking for action, story twists, chemistry between the main characters, and a story line to bring it all together.

Some great names that I've never heard of before. Ross Marquand and Michael Scovotti were fantastic. Loved their chemistry on screen. Hope to see them in more movies in the future.

The directing was very well done. Truly blown away that this movie was made on a small budget. Great quality and very well written.

Very likely to keep most audiences interested through the whole film.
