Trivia

-The film features the final performance of Paxton's career, being released just after his February 2017 death. It is also Headly's penultimate performance prior to her death in June of the same year. See more »

Goofs

When Mae puts on the body camera, it's described as "total transparency" of her life. Yet she can choose to turn it off for bathroom breaks (or to have secret meetings in the bathroom), so it's not a total record of everything she's done or said. See more »

Bad, bad, bad
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie is cheesy in all the wrong ways. The dialogue is just cliché and awful. The acting (aside from Bill Paxton who is only on screen for like 3 mins) is horrendous. I mean some of these people can actually act, but they are either just phoning it in or something else was going on. Either way, this is just complete crap. The story was so ham-fisted and obvious that it just makes you cringe the whole way through. Avoid at all costs.
