Solid entertainment

Can't say I had high hopes for this movie, due to its somewhat dull premise and setting. I was pleasantly surprised - the movie turned very exiting after 20 minutes or so, without spoiling too much.

Big plus for the hyperrealistic tone of the movie - small, human mistakes turns into an easily believable catastrophic scenario. Characters and story is all very realistic, making for great suspenseful entertainment when things go wrong. Acting, pacing and visual effects is also all very well done. A small minus is some corny music and some characters acting stupid at times; though I wouldn't expect anything else from a big budget action movie.

8/10 recommended for anyone who likes a well done film about humans screwing up big time, solid entertainment
