Urban Exploration. The practice of investigating areas not designed for public use. But strange things can happen in the dark, closed-off areas of history beneath the streets of Moscow, and what started as a way for Nate (Daniel Caltagirone) to escape his grief quickly turns into a journey that forces him to confront it head-on, with nothing less than his eternal destiny hanging in the balance. As I sat here watching this film I could see why this has gotten so many mixed reviews, your going to have those that really enjoy and understand what the film-makers were doing here and your going to have those that just don't get it. The story is a about Nate and his wife who are grief-stricken over the death of their young daughter so to try and leave the past behind so together with Adrian's brother they set off the do some Urban Exploration. This is a practice of investigating areas not designed for public use. But when they enter the infamous Stalin's fabled Metro-2 things take a turn for the worse and Nate must face his past head on in order to survive. Shot with a hand held camera "Blair Witch" style the film does take some getting use to in the beginning but once the story starts to get interesting you forget all about that. The film has two themes going, one being Urban Exploration and the other about regret and guilt that comes with the choices we make in life all of that combined with a supernatural twist. The settings and lighting are fantastic and the soundtrack curious of Crystal Method fit the film perfectly. I will not go into the plot too deep as not to ruin the film but if you give the movie a chance I a sure you will walk away from it pleased and also thinking about it which is what a good film does, it gives us food for thought. The cast did a great job, my only beef is we could of got a little more background on their characters but I am sure that helped add to the film's over-all mystery. If your looking for something different this would be the movie, it offers something original in it's story-telling and settings. Released by First Look Home Entertainment. **** Out Of *****
