About 14 minutes into the movie, Sam & Dan are having a beer at a bar. When the camera is showing the two from the front, Sam's beer is about half empty but when there is a shot from behind the two, Sam's beer is empty. These exchanging camera shots reveal this mistake 2 or 3 times. See more »

My brief review of the film
14 September 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

An insightful and relatively interesting look at a dangerous job, enlivened by the inclusion of a few colourful supporting characters. The film is nevertheless weighed down by a predictable, typical romance, the lack of solid story to go with the insight it provides, and in addition, the acting and the technical aspects are not any better than ordinary. However, at least the film manages to be engaging for the whole of its duration, because at approximately one hour in length, it hardly has the chance to overstay its welcome. It is worth checking out if it comes to television, even if it is not the type of thing that is worth seeing more than once.
