My home state movie!!
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where was most of this movie taped at? I know the Tee-Pee gas station scene was shot at Us HWY 24/40 AND 59 in Lawrence, Ks, and a lot of the other scenes where also shot not far away in Leavenworth County and Douglas County. I live close by, in Leavenworth County. I like seeing movies that have been tape close by kinda like Article 99 which was taped mostly in downtown Kansas City, Mo. I know a lot of stand ins from my area where a part of this movie. The chase scenes and other driving scenes where shot in the rural areas around Desoto,Ks. Not a bad movie, I like it because it was based on a robber in my home state. I wish movie makers would start doing this again more, taking their movies into the heartland and into other locations to film. There where a few more movies that I know that where shot around here, but I can't remember them right off. Still a good movie to watch, and or buy.
