Outside is dangerous…inside is terrifying in the heart-pounding new thriller from producer J.J. Abrams. After a catastrophic car crash, a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, A Good Day To Die Hard) wakes up in a survivalist’s (John Goodman, Argo) underground bunker. He claims to have saved her from an apocalyptic attack that has left the outside world uninhabitable. But, as his increasingly suspicious actions lead her to question his motives, she’ll have to escape in order to discover the truth.
I started this late at night and fell asleep. The next day, I put it on again and managed to stay awake to the point where I had fallen asleep the night before. As it turned out, that was about the point where the movie actually started to display a little action.
Once the action was ignited, I got very into the story, vacillating between the veracity and the falsity of the ongoing situation and what actually was going on outside the bunker.
I think the story was clever, but it suffered in its delivery.
