Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when the world of Grey, a self-labeled technophobe, is turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant.
Grey's a stay-at-home mechanic, whose wife is Asha. One day, Grey asks Asha to help him return a car to his client. Whilst Grey and Asha's self-driving car malfunctions, it crashes. Grey watches helplessly as Asha bleeds to death next to him. Grey returns home - a widowed quadriplegic, under the care of his mother. His wife''s death and the inability of police to identify their attackers cause him to sink into a depression. After a suicide attempt, he's offered to have high tech chip implanted - enabling him to walk. Though initially hesitant, he's persuaded to have the surgery..
The movie is set in the US but filmed in Australia. At around 5:45, in the sequence where Grey has Asha follow him to Eron Keen's house, the Bolte Bridge over the Yarra River, Melbourne is shown from the air. The traffic on the bridge is driving on the right hand side of the road, as it does in the US but rather than block the bridge and have them control the traffic for the shot, they drove over the bridge on the left side as you would in Melbourne and simply reverse the image. This can be proven if you pull up the same angle in Google maps. However in the next scene where the two cars are driving on an undulating country road, they actually drive on the right hand side of the road. This is proven because as they are driving up to the top of a hill, the painted lines on the road show broken for traffic going up hill (safe to overtake) and solid for traffic going down (not safe to overtake). In reality this would be opposite. See more »
During the car chase, the same overhead road signs appear at least twice (most noticeably one with "3 1/2" in the lower right corner). See more »
