When David (Paul) and John Hall (Dillahunt) are riding in the SUV, when discussing Hall's leg injury, Hall states that after his surgery, he's "more metal than man at this point", followed by "Two years of physical therapy before I stopped walking like a zombie in one of those bad movies." This may be a reference to Garrett Dillahunt appearing as a Terminator in The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008) and as John Dorie in Fear the Walking Dead (2015). See more »

What do you call Zach Whedon's little gem of a film? It's part romance, part mystery, and part thriller, and all good and intriguing. It's not a loud film, despite the action sequences; it has nuance, and lovely touches in the Aaron Paul (David) and Annabelle Wallis (Claire) relationship.
The film begins with a misdirection, actually a long-standing motif with David and Claire, which creates tension from the get-go and almost a quality of premonition for the rest of the film. I never watched Breaking Bad but was impressed by how good Aaron Paul's Everyman was, doggedly putting himself though Hell to find an answer when something happens to Claire.
I was equally impressed with how Whedon took David from a Naif out of his element to a little more savvy the deeper he dug, trying to find information along the way on his quasi-detective journey.
Nice acting from everyone involved. You will probably recognize a few actors you've seen before in film and television.
True love WILL make you do the wacky. I really enjoyed this film.
