In the opening scenes of the film, Josh and Dena are shown at Lake of the Woods, which is in southern Oregon. Later in the film, when they are heading to the lake with the boat, they mention that they will have to put in "upstream at Lake of the Woods". The following morning, Josh asks what is going on as people are reading the news, and it is said that "Someone blew up Green Peter Dam last night", and later when Josh is at the library, the news article mentions Green Peter Dam, and the Santiam River, which Green Peter Dam impounds to form Green Peter Lake. Green Peter Dam is outside of Sweet Home, and is over 100 miles from Lake of the Woods. See more »

The East (2013) was really good IMO, it too was about nature loving "terrorists", I use the term lightly cause their intention is not to cause terror but to help nature but at the end of the day it's not that far off from what they are.
If you agree with this or not doesn't really matter, what matters is the quality of the movie.
And where as 'The East' was a thrilling ride this one takes more a realistic approach, almost too realistic, cause this movie is really slow, plenty of scenes where people barely say anything.
Now that doesn't necessarily make it a bad movie but the characters aren't really all that interesting, and you don't really get to know the characters much, not who they really are besides 'outlaws for the nature' and who they are in relationsship to each other.
And it's hard to actually care for them cause, frankly, they are kind of dumb, not thinking through what they are actually doing before doing it, which is bizarre considering how much planning they go through.
I could go into details but that would mean spoiling a big deal of the movie so I won't.
Anyway, the movie visually looks fine, it has a decent cast but it simply didn't make me feel anything, except for a little annoyance in the second half.
No I suggest you wath 'The East' instead, it might not be as realistic, but it's way more entertaining.
