Trivia

Misdirection is a key ingredient in the film. Director Eubanks wanted the viewer to continually feel they nearly have a grip on where the film is going; only to have their notions fall apart when the direction changes again - all the way to the very end. See more »

Goofs

When they stop for gas and coffee at the beginning of the movie Nic asks where Haley has gone and then finds her overlooking a canyon with the morning sun covering her whole back but when Nic takes a seat there is a clear shadow of something up to the middle of Haley's back and what looks to be the shadow of a tree on her upper right shoulder.

Great movie
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Just saw it at Sundance! The director was there and answered lots of questions. Can't say a whole lot without spoiling it but Fishburne is pretty awesome. The acting was great and lots of metaphors used. If you like hacker type movies with Internet related stuff, go for this movie. It is also pretty accurate in terms of tech. I am a tech guy and can attest to it. Awesome special effects, apparently done in Canada. I guess it will get into the big movie theatres. I do need to watch it again though. If you get to see it, put in a review and let us know what you think. How does it compare to other sci fi movies you have seen. Apparently it was made on a low budget too and in a very short time span, so this is even more impressive.
