The UK release was cut, the distributor was required to remove incorrect and inaccurate use of BBFC symbols and information before the film could be approved for classification. Without these changes the film would be refused classification. See more »
Based loosely on the documentary The Daniel Project, I saw this at the premiere night in Edinburgh and it certainly came over very well on the big screen. The story-line is quite complicated and you really need to pay attention. Within the cinema environment the film had a pretty tense look and feel and plenty hidden gems for the conspiracy theory fans. For a low budget film it has a fair amount of high quality production feel and the music and sound design work very well. Couple of the actors are a bit wooden otherwise there were some good characters throughout. Would have been nice to see the story-line given more work but all in all a very thought-provoking film that clearly touches many topics that have an affect on our lives today.
