GPS is not expected to work properly underground as it requires clear signal from the satellites. Moreover, you would require signals from different satellites to triangulate a precise position (such the ones shown in the movie) which is not plausible underground. See more »
This is an entertaining, not pretentious survival movie that has not zombies in it and that's a lot to say nowadays.
The movie takes place in Barcelona and tells the story of a software engineer caught up in the middle of the disaster. Nothing extremely original but it is just well done. The film-maker paid attention to details, cast performance is rock solid specially Coronado's and the pacing is perfect. The main actor also delivers but I didn't like his voice very much and sometimes couldn't make out what he was saying.
It sends some messages and social commentaries but not in a pretentious, superficial way. Maybe I would have hoped that the main female character ,played by actress Marta Etura, be more important in the storyline.
This is a good European catastrophic movie. We need more of these!
