In the parking lot scene when the car is moved by telekinesis, the rest of the cars in the parking lot clearly have the steering wheel on the right side of the vehicle. The film was shot in South Africa, where this is common place. It takes place, however, in the United States (Seattle), where the steering wheel should be on the left side. See more »
The main secret that the makers of the movie left out was where did the supernatural power come from. The question was asked throughout the movie and even in the end it was brought up again. I feel like for many this was a big problem, but for me I felt it left good curiosity.
The overall movie was filmed well. I thought it was going to be a regular story about someone who becomes a here etc. However the movie was formed off of realistic scenarios. Scenerios mixed with the science fiction elements made the movie bring a sense of realness.
Something I liked about the movie is the emotion brought out in each character with the gained super power. I feel like each person watching the movie could at least relate to one of them.
To sum it up, awesome movie and great actors.
