Did You Know?


The APC's are made by Tatra in The Czech Republic. Tatra uses a unique center still frame with the springs running across the body of the vehicle, rather than front to rear. You can clearly see the unusual result of that suspension at the 25 minute mark when the APC stops. See more »


At around 5:20 to 5:30 as Clyne enters the test lab, and the camera rolls forward as they appear around a pillar, the camera operator and camera is clearly visible in the reflection of the window. See more »


Clyne: So, maybe there are things science can't answer.
[powering down]
Fran Madison: No. Wait, no. This is why we came here. This is the evidence. This is why you came, remember? Remember? So many people have died. You said it. You said, "I wanna know why."
Clyne: I know enough.
Fran Madison: You have to think about the bigger picture.
Clyne: I am.

The language spoken from a little girl is Slovenian
15 December 2016 | by mamicutipalimSee all my reviews

I really don't know from where others are coming.

Even one Romanian author said that the girl talked in bad Romanian.

The girl and the boy were talking in Slovenian.

Which was a disaster error from producers of this film. Shooted in Hungary, stated that is Moldavia and talking Slovenian.

It's like you shooted film in America, stated that its Mexico and people talked french.

It's hilarious bud after all the geography and language failures it's still decent movie.

People should really learn some basic facts before doing things
