It looks more like a movie than a documentary. It takes less than 3 days for riots / looting to happen without electricity. The sad thing is it is probably true.

I decided it was a decent glimps at handful of possibilities. I learned a few things I did not know or think of. I can be a bit more prepared as staying locked in my place and renting at a lower level if in a high rise .Keeping a flashlight & my medication always in my bag. But it's safest to go it alone and be prepared for 2 weeks. Found it funny that so many people depend on electric power to open cans!

To say this movie was bad. It’s an understatement. It’s a train wreck.

not what I expected - we couldn't watch it as it was so violent in the first minute or so. It's not a documentary at all.
