Production staff used a bicycle to travel between filming locations in downtown Hopewell. After filming was completed, the bicycle was autographed by production staff and Daniel Radcliffe, and was donated to the City of Hopewell. The bicycle sold at auction for more than $2,000, with all proceeds benefiting the Hopewell United Way campaign. See more »
In the beginning, while being interrogated by Nate, the terrorist refers to the terrorist organization as 'Al-Shabab'. An Arabic speaker would pronounce it as 'Ash-Shabab'. See more »

Personally I was very looking forward to this. The trailers look great. The acting looked great. The tension looked great. Daniel Radcliffe looked great. They weren't. So the movie opens with a very rushed beginning of why he actually goes undercover and the introduction of Daniel Radcliffe's character whom I will now look up the name for because I cannot remember AT ALL. My point proved. So Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe) is a mid 20's geek in the CIA who is bullied by other CIA members? It doesn't matter if that actually happened, the bully aspect of the movie plays no part to the rest of the story. So Toni Colette's character comes in, tells him about racists who he has to stop by going undercover as one of them. The plot is very rushed. Then he within the span of 5 minutes becomes a highly regarded white supremacist. That's the non spoiler opening of the movie.
There are several problems with this movie: 1) Miscast - I believe Danielle Radcliffe was very miscast in this movie and didn't bring a very believable performance as non racist and racist characters. 2) Pacing - The pacing was all off, they spent ages on stuff that didn't matter and very little time on set up for the parts that actually contribute to the story. 3) Too many characters - Throughout the film Nate Foster connects with different layers of the White Supremacist organisation, a new group of people per layer. It does not give enough time showing him infiltrating and connecting with these groups. When they pop up later in the movie an hour since they were last shown it feels forced. 4) The Ending - The ending feels like they had a really good set up and script for it but then they realised they only had 2 days of shooting left so they skipped most of it, that's all I'll say about that.
The Good: 1) Conflict and Tension - The conflict with the people in the Nazi/KKK organisations and tension is great but also with people outside of it. There is a scene in which a black friend sees him in the street (unaware of his undercover identity) and to keep his cover hidden he says some very racist very harsh things, which is actually quite hard to watch sometimes.
The Verdict: If/ When it goes onto Netflix and you don't know what to watch, you're bored and in the mood for an infiltration movie, this is the one to watch, any other case I would just skip this one.
