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 »
The synopsis for this movie almost put me off as it seemed a little dull but I am so glad I decided to give it a go.
The basic premise is a guy looking for his love after developing "The Panic", a form of agoraphobia so severe it causes instant death. There is a little bit of buddy action thrown in as he goes on his travels. Please don't let that put you off, I am not into romantic films or buddy movies and I loved this. Well acted, beautifully shot, this one draws you in from the start and has you rooting for the main character until the end. There is not a huge amount of dialogue so even if you are not a fan of subtitles, it didn't detract from my enjoyment. There is a little action in it but it is mostly about how people deal with an apocalyptic event in a completely human way.
If you like your films with loads of action, gore and special effects then this probably isn't for you but if you don't mind something a bit slower like The Road for example, then you'll like this one.
