Because of the film's shooting schedule, many action sequences and scenes in the film were shot by the film's Second Unit, including much of the car sequence where Wesley Snipes escapes the clutches of the Asian gang that kidnapped him early that morning. See more »
In the movie, some people speak Mandarin Chinese and some people speak Cantonese Chinese, sometimes in the same conversation. Also, Julia Fang, who is only seen speaking Cantonese, translates a poorly spoken Mandarin recording to Shaw. Also, Fang pronounces Mrs. Li's name wrong, she pronounced it "Lie" when it is pronounced "Lee". The interpreter for the conference translates the English into Cantonese, which would never be done. Most Cantonese speaking people can speak Mandarin, but almost no Mandarin speaking people can speak Cantonese. See more »

What are you waiting for?
Novak, I'm experiencing the moment.
He's going to experience a Chinese labor camp in a moment if he doesn't stick to schedule.

First off the technical aspects of this movie were superior in every sense. The sound, the editing, the camera work, all of it was fantastic and made this an enjoyable treat.
You have to enjoy all that because, with the exception of Donald Sutherland who is always on, the acting isn't there. Wesley Snipes is one of my favorite actions heroes, but we all know that action heroes can't act. Well, maybe Bruce Willis is the exception. But for an action hero, Wesley is great and does a great job here - for an action hero.
And, hey, Marie Matiko was easy on the eyes.
If you liked Enemy of the State, you will like this movie.
