Trivia

The film's scenes and dialogue has many references to Hollywood action movies. For example in the scene where the main characters jump off a bridge, one of them yells "i hate you" before they hit the water as did Don Johnson in the movie Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. Tony has an embarrassing girly name, as does Sylvester Stallone in Cobra. See more »

Goofs

During the final chase scene the rear window of the bus is shown to be intact during aerial shots even after it's been shot and kicked off earlier. See more »
