Goofs

The Sergeant (Chris Obi) has a mixture of ribbons from the Air Force Basic Training Ribbon (on top row for God's sake) to the Bronze Star (on the position of the least ranking -- it is the 20th military ranking of all military awards and is usually found on the top (highest ranking) row. There are other service and auxiliary ribbons that could be from JrROTC to Police/Fire to Foreign. All it takes for wardrobe to set these ribbons correctly is to look up the proper military service "Order of Preference." See more »

Give this one a go, it deserves it.
27 May 2016 | by ads-contactSee all my reviews

I'm going to give this a nine to counteract the people who gave this movie low marks. This is an excellent psychological thriller with very original premise. The computer game scenario gave this movie the kind of freshness that The Matrix had. A fairly straight forward plot and limited dialogue it had the feel of a J.G Ballard novel, the director handled the whole 'alternative world encroaching on our so-called real world' context with style and focus. One barely felt the low budget. People who didn't like this film are clearly not very movie literate and have probably overdosed on Hollywood CGI monsters. Give this one a go, it deserves it.
