Trivia

Sam Rockwell does not have a speaking part, but for SR fans this movie will hold some significance. It clearly shows his bandaged left hand after his car accident and reconstructive surgery. He appears in several scenes, and in one, sits gingerly in the back of the truck, protecting his fingers by holding them straight up. See more »

Sam Fuller is the best part
16 March 2009 | by (Marin County, CA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's an okay film, somewhat formulaic (as some reviewers have pointed out) and well-acted (as other reviewers have pointed out). The real gem here, for people in the know, is the cameo by the late, great director Sam Fuller, as a man injured in a car accident (which has virtually nothing to do with the main plot). Fuller is totally himself, as he rants his way through all of his complaints about Hollywood, in his own inimitable style. It's great having him on screen and those who may know the man's films (including THE BIG RED ONE, SHOCK CORRIDOR, THE NAKED KISS, STEEL HELMET, 40 GUNS, and many others) will enjoy seeing the man behind the camera -- one of the great Hollywood personalities.
