Before the end title starts, there were some video clippings were playing to show the world wide revolt. Just after "Paris" it showed "Karachi" which is supposed to be in Pakistan. But clippings was of "Dhaka" and Bangladesh flags were waved by the people in the scene. Moreover, this was not a video of a protest at all. Rather it was a video of a pilgrimage for a religious gathering called 'Bishwa Iztema" held every year in January in Dhaka. See more »

This movie was a pleasant surprise! The movie is set in Chicago post alien invasion. It's about a secret network of insurgents that use a sophisticated way of communications with each other. A head Detective is on the hunt to figure out who is actually in this network... Just when you think you have it figured out you're in for a pleasant surprise.
This is not your average alien invasion movie. It actually has some substance to it. The story line & writing is fantastic. The acting is very well done with some familiar faces...
Give this movie a go if you like this genre of film. If it's not your normal type of movie you would watch you may end up enjoying the Thriller aspect as well as the Detective side of the film.
