Did You Know?


Joe Hallenback makes two references to being "old". He says to Jimmy Dix, "you don't think a guy like me can beat you" and at the discussion about the $650 he says, "I am very old". Bruce Willis is only 5 years older than Damon Wayans See more »


When Jimmy Dix shows the senator's bodyguards the "bom" picture through the window of the BMW, they shoot at him completely shattering the window. In a subsequent shot, when Jimmy is yanking on the seat belt, you can see the window undamaged. See more »

The great Bruce Willis
22 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Great movie excellently interpreted by Bruce Willis who personifies magnificently the archetypes of the excellent antihero. By means of a marvelous and elegant script, the action develops to pace of video - paper clip, with a perfect aesthetics, action to streams and a sense of the sarcastic, intelligent and brilliant humor. The prominent figures are worn out, leaving each one his personal stamp in the film; as curiosity, the exuberant appears Halle Berry in one of her first appearances on the great screen. We are before an impact ante and entertaining movie, which it(he,she) seems to improve with the years, turning practically into the classic one of the cinema of action.
