Did You Know?

Trivia

Loosely based on events of November 7, 2006, when multiple eyewitnesses at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (including control tower personnel and flight crews) reported an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) hovering over Gate C17. 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 »

Great movie and very watchable
14 October 2018 | by hww1955See all my reviews

The movie is slow paced, but full of intrigue. It leads you to understand what it takes to report something like this to a world that has become so skeptical and anti UFO. People that can't think past their left thumb seem to be what is called normal these days. And the ending, I will not give it away, gives way to the probability of a sequel. Hoping that is the case. Well done writer, actors, directors on a great movie.
