Review: Scientists, in an effort to protect and ensure the continuation of the human race builds an underground city to last 200 years, but as we all know, humans are idiots and somewhere along the line, stuff gets lost, and people forget about it, and then things start falling apart. Now to be perfectly honest, this movie was a bit of a snoozer, and the people are really, really dumb, you live underground, don’t you think there would be stuff above you, maybe we should check it out, (just saying), if it was me, I would’ve been long gone.
