Billy Bob Thornton,

For a brief moment this film held the distinction of having the biggest aquatic film set ever, until Titanic (1997) began filming several weeks later. See more »
When the armored car stalls, it is near the middle of a dip in the road. Later the water is chest deep next to the car, but when the robbers cross the water it never gets much deeper than waist depth. As the middle of the dip would be the lowest point, the water depth should have been much greater. See more »
I wonder whose car this is.
Whoever it is, they like Pat Benatar, Eddie Money and... Oh. The soundtrack to Footloose.
Oh, my God. This is my car from high school.

Though Morgan Freeman is an absolute legend, I can't see him being the bad guy robber at the beginning. After his stellar performance in "The Shawshank Redemption," he has left himself too open to being seen by fans as a "nice guy." True, he did play a convict in that movie, but you never saw him commit the crime that landed him there. Therefore casting him as an armoured car robber didn't sit right with me.
Christian Slater did a "Michael J. Fox" (The Concierge/Secret of My Success) by copycatting his own performance in "Broken Arrow" (same screenplay writer...).
The ending is too abrupt, but, overall, I did enjoy the movie all the same. For action fans only...
