Trivia

Peter Weller was the film's original director and was replaced shortly after filming started because of his criticism of James G. Robinson and the film's budget (he said, "Their idea of a budget, is going to a hot dog stand."). See more »

Goofs

The sound effect used for the British police cars was inaccurate. British police cars did once sound like that but that was over twenty years ago. They now sound similar to American police vehicles. See more »

This is the absolute best movie EVER made
23 January 2005 | by (Bethlehem, PA) – See all my reviews

I only say that because it's true. I have seen literally thousands of movies, this is the best one i have ever seen. i recommend this to anyone who asks me what my favorite movie is, and they all come back and ask me where they can buy it. this movie takes drama, thrills, and even art to a completely new level. i cannot believe this movie hasn't won the most awards in the history of film. I am serious, if you haven't seen this movie, go get it immediately. this movie is the absolute winner of every category in my book. i remember seeing this for the first time when it was on HBO in 1999. I must have watched it 20 times that week. i went and bought the VHS tape and when the DVD came out i had it immediately. this movie is amazing.
