Was originally titled "The Flood" but was changed because the filmmakers didn't want audiences to assume it was primarily a disaster movie. See more »
Actually, firearms and ammunition will function wet, even underwater. What could keep a semi-auto from functioning eventually would be washing away of lubrication, if the water itself did not provide enough lubrication. Revolvers, pumps, bolt actions would not be affected immediately. In a matter of days, rust might keep them from functioning.
For ammunition, water would need considerable time to seep in around the primer and bullet. Many primers use a sealant after insertion to prevent this. Deactivation would be a matter of days or weeks. See more »

The Paramount mountain is seen in much worse weather than normal; the camera pans down from the logo to scenes of flooding. See more »
Really surprised at the low rating of this film which as a action thriller is immensely watchable and re-watchable which for me is the test of a good film that is bears being seen over and over. It is as others have said an endlessly inventive thriller with good action and the idea of a film where all the characters are continuously falling in, or speeding over floods in tremendous. It is not as others have said "another heist film" because the environment and opportunity of the potential crime is different and thought provoking. Doesn't this gain some extra interest given the Hurricane flooding in the southern states also? I enjoy Morgan Freeman's portrayal as well as Christian Slater and Minnie Driver's performances. The old couple is a marvellous piece of human comedy, well portrayed by both actors. Watch this film and then . . . watch it again!
