The director and producer first spoke about the story in June 2013. By August the film was fully financed, and a year later, the film was fully completed. It shot in Toronto, New York, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kazakhstan, edited in Los Angeles, and finished in Toronto. See more »
The Australian actor playing Alex refers to himself early in the movie as an "adult" with an accent on the second syllable, while every Canadian-including Ukrainian and Russian immigrants-would place the accent on the first syllable. In other words, he was using an American accent after having grown up in Canada. See more »
This is an astonishingly bad film. The acting is adequate but somewhat two dimensional while the characterisations and scripting are stupidly caricature-like.
When they talk about visiting a website called The Dark Web as though they are using the actual dark web (peer to peer technology) is when I really gave up. They even refer to someone as The Head of the Dark Web! Basically this film is nothing but propaganda and disinformation and is clearly against privacy laws and anonymity. It is exactly the opposite of what one would expect from a film with this title if it had been made by people with an interest in telling a story that has some basis in reality. It is cartoon-ish to say the very least.
