Goofs

Late in the film, Bob Gault is told that his cell phone was located by GPS near the scene of the double murder that occurred early in the film. That requires a phone equipped with a GPS receiver, but the first GPS-equipped cell phone didn't reach the market until 1999, a few years after the film's era. Phones without GPS receivers may be located by tower triangulation. See more »

So many flaws!
14 September 2014 | by emma_koernerSee all my reviews

I'm giving this film a 5/10 as it was watchable, and the acting 'wasn't bad', but I'm very unsure what all these high praising reviews are all about! I hadn't even realised Eden was supposedly based on a true story, as there are just SO many gaps and obvious flaws in the film it's ridiculous, and either there wasn't enough research made by the people behind the film, or the 'true story' behind it is a piece of fiction. After researching Chong Kim's life, I'm thinking both. I don't really get how a whole film was made based on this girl's life without anything being verified as true, and not even attempting to make certain parts more believable for viewers.
