In the opening credits the camera pans the skyline of NY, and shows the construction of the Twin Towers in the background. The movie is set in the late 1950s and the Twin Towers were not constructed until the 1970s. See more »
The movie overall is pretty boring. There are long pauses accented by giggling and nothing of interest said. It could have been a better film if the script had went through a couple more rewrites. The fake 50s music is awful too, which doesn't help. But with that said, Stallone is really good in this film. There's no ego in the way. In fact, watch Driven, then watch this film and see the difference. You can see in Lords that Stallone was a hungry actor. When you watch him now, you just get a smirking ego who recites lines like cardboard. It's hard to believe this Stallone is the same guy.
