Trivia

The second of two movies by directors David and Àlex Pastor that take place in a post-apocalyptic world. The first one is Carriers (2009). See more »

Goofs

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 »

A grim but surprisingly uplifting tale
23 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a pleasant surprise! The plot for this movie sounds fairly thin and uninteresting, but the storytelling and characters make it much more compelling than expected. The story is grim yet the audience feels for the lead characters who are determined to prevail for motivations that could seem sappy but come across as noble.

The premise sounds simplistic but the storytelling is intriguing. We find ourselves in a recently post-apocalyptic world; the cause this time: People develop a fear of going outside. Through flashbacks that are visually woven into the story, we see how a few people seeming go crazy and won't leave the building they're in, or die in the process. This overwhelms more people until everyone is trapped in the building they were in when "The Panic" hit them. The story doesn't dwell on the cause but exploring the consequences.

The story packs a lot of emotion and drama with vivid characters portrayed well by the lead actors. The look of the movie, the score, the turns in the plot, and the characters' evolution come together to create dramatic punch. I look forward to more movies from the Pastor brothers.
