During the shootout at the arcade, Ryker uses an MP5K in a briefcase. If the briefcase were actually used in this manner, the shooter would most likely end up with a calf-full of lead. The proper technique of employing an MP5K in a briefcase (as taught by the HK International Training Div.) is to hold it with both hands and brace it against the chest/stomach (muzzle toward the target, of course).

Wow, this movie just blew me away !!! I am a fan of the John Woo type of action movies and I must say that even he was just one of the executive producers, his mark is all over this movie!!!
The result is very good : Nicely paced action sequences, more story and emotions than in your average Hong Kong action movie (But not as much story development as in an American production, but in this genre this just isn't needed that much, it would just slow down the pace), well acted , you kinda start feeling sympathetic for the leads and you'll certainly hate these villains. This is a thrill ride from beginning till the end. And this is where I have my only point of criticism : The movie is way to short !!! 80 minutes and the credits start to roll!!! You'll almost start to beg for more... I'll best describe this movie as a cross between "Face-Off" and "The professional" from director Luc Besson. A must-see for every action movie lover.
