Trivia

The IP address that Nic and Jonah use to trace Nomad's location in Nevada, 192.117.255.147, actually belongs to "SMILE - Internet Gold" which is one of Israel's largest communication companies that provides web connectivity to thousands of subscribers, in both business and residential environments.

Goofs

The movie's geography makes no sense, with a postulated setting of Nevada at one moment, and the Rio Grande Gorge appearing at another. The characters actually discuss this, it's one of the main plot points, and the ending explains why this is. See more »

Quotes

Haley: Nic, I offer to help, not because I think you need it, but because I know you don't.

Better than the reviews you read on this site
10 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

The 'movie-snob' reviews almost kept me from watching this movie -- I'm glad I didn't listen to them. This was one of the most suspenseful movies I have seen in a long time. At one point I paused the movie to check outside because I thought I heard something -- the movie had me spooked and it takes a lot to get that kind of reaction out of me. There was an eerie feel that stayed with me through the entire movie and it had me guessing the entire time.

The movie could have been better -- there is an attempt to show some spiritual triumph for the main character and a love story that doesn't work, but the suspense and sci-fi elements alone make the movie a solid B and worth seeing.
