When Jordan and Hunter are hiding in the laboratory where the modem router is, Hunter opens his laptop computer to give light. When he first does this, you can see the reflection of one of the camera lights on his screen. Also, when he points the screen toward the ceiling, it only illuminates one small square when it would have lit up most of the room equally because the screen does not emit a focused beam of light.

I totally dislike this movie and here are the reasons:
29 January 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

In my point of view, a film director ought to do a little research before making such a movie, which includes chapters of another country's traditions and geographical elements. So I'm complaining because, as a Romanian citizen, I feel frustrated and most offended by the things which characterize typical Romanians, cities, names and such. Also i want to point out some of the mistakes I saw in the movie: -There is no Wolfsberg city in Romania, that being a German name and also the city in the movie looks alike a German city, for example Lubeck; -Romanians do not have a Russian accent when they speak English, nor do they have Serbian names like Goran; -A typical Romanian car wouldn't be a New York Yellow Cab or a Volkswagen, instead it would be a classic Dacia; -Romanians don't dream about going to "America" (USA), Great Britain sounds better; -and the last but not least, you misspelled "larvă de viEspe" and also grammatical correct would be "coadă de scorpion" not "scorpion coadă"

I think due to the imagination of some movie directors, foreigners are getting a wrong idea about Romanians. We are not part werewolves, part blood thirsty vampires, part gypsy. Dracula was not a Transylvanian medieval blood thirsty ruler, instead he was the ruler of the medieval state called The Romanian Country.

So for an ignorant, this movie is perfect. But for someone a little bit educated, who knows essential Geography and History, this movie is complete rubbish.
