Goofs

Towards the end of the movie at the platform while the last train prepares to depart, you can clearly hear the voice over the PA say "Planet evacuation in progress", while we know for a fact that the survivors are heading to an underground base to regroup and reclaim their homes, having no intention to leave the planet.

Much better than expected - original and thought provoking
27 July 2018 | by lucy-partridgeSee all my reviews

I started watching this thinking I knew what to expect and I was very pleasantly surprised by how the plot turned. It was all there in the beginning but the story tellers did a job of subtly setting things up. I thought that the cast was talented and diverse and it was nice to see familiar faces getting the center stage they deserve. I'm not giving any spoilers but I just wanted to express that this really deserved d impress me and I enjoyed it and thought it was clever. I'll be thinking about it for a while.
