The baby's health parameters on the monitor can be seen during nearly the whole film. It shows the blood pressure is 120/80 and the pulse rate is 72, which are good parameters only for an average adult person. A newborn's physiological parameters for blood pressure is approximately 75/50 and the baby's pulse should be way over 100, approximately 140. Especially in this case, where the baby considered a premature infant. See more »
I don't get it. This wasn't supposed to happen.

If you watch the movie, you'll get what I mean with the summary line. Maybe it's enough if you know what it will be about, but I won't spoil that. You might feel like me and might not want to know any story details, before you watch the movie. One thing is for sure: This movie will stand or fall with Paul Walker and Paul Walker alone! Your feelings towards him might influence your viewing experience.
Your perspective of him as an actor will play a major role too. If you think he's just good doing Action (Fast & Furious mostly), than you might want to stay away/clear of this movie. It is far removed from that agenda. He's trying to act in this! Like it or not the stabs he's taking are not that bad. And while the movie might have some slow moments (slower than the rest that is), it still works! Tension is there, even if predictable! And all during an event that actually happened! Based on true events then?
