    Starring: Rory Cochrane, Mary McCormack
    Billed as a timely look at the consequences of a terrorist attack on modern-day Los Angeles
    Rory Cochrane (familiar from TV's CSI series and also currently appearing in A Scanner Darkly) and Mary McCormack star as Brad and Lexi, a young couple who have just moved into a new house in the LA suburbs - as they have no phone or TV installed, thus disabling communication. Brad is some sort of musician and lolls about the house one morning while Lexi drives off to her office job. But when a dirty bomb explodes in the city and cripples its infrastructure, panic sets in chez Brad.

    I watched it a while back. I agree it is rather depressing, but it is watchable and I like the twist in the story line at the end.

    I don't really see how any non-preper would be inspired by this though.

    I just watched this film. I enjoyed most of the film, though I thought that the plot twist at the end was a stretch. I agree with Slots that it didn't really have much to offer a non prepper; it had more of a damned if you do, damned if you don't feel about it.
    In fact the whole point of the movie seemed to be that if you prepare for a disaster exactly the way the government suggests you should, then you are going to get exactly what you deserve... can anyone say "We're with the government, and we're here to help."
