Trivia

The movie title, as shown at the beginning and end of the film (not on the movie poster), uses the same font and style as the title used for Gerry Anderson's 'UFO' tv series. See more »

Goofs

Derek is looking at a news report on his notebook computer when the government agent states that the UAP was 88 feet in diameter. Derek then says, "He's using my maths. "Maths" is a term used in the UK and Australia. An American student at the University of Cincinnati would say "math"; not "maths". The actor who plays Derek (Alex Sharp) is from the UK and accidentally used the British term instead of what was in the script. See more »

Bring out your inner geek with this thoughtful film
7 September 2018 | by tarquin-65274See all my reviews

This was a very decent film and definitely worth watching - the acting was underplayed and there were no stupid special effects - just a good interesting plot and story.

I have no idea if the math was accurate but it seemed quite plausible and the mystery kept me waiting until the end - I almost felt like a math genius just watching it unfold.

The acting and direction was good - the usual aspergers/autistic type math genius that gets to prove his point by solving a really hard problem - made me think that the future of human kind will probably be in the hands of someone like this.

Not the average action packed sci-fi alien squealing fest but very entertaining.
