Barely worth the effort
24 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this only if you have 90 minutes to kill, and nothing better to do than watch a free Amazon Prime movie. That alone should be a warning to you.

It's a fair attempt on an oft repeated theme, but the plot is so full of holes that you really don't want to think about it too hard.

After about 1/2 hour boredom set in and I found myself counting down to whatever 'surprise' conclusion was in store.

I liked the 1201 & 1202 alarms at the beginning (you have to watch closely) - a nice tribute to Apollo 11.

Otherwise it's very forgettable.
