The Canal Street subway station was actually filmed in Toronto's "Bay Lower" unused subway station. $150,000 was spent on set dressing alone. The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) was so impressed with the New York conversion that they actually requested the set to be left up after filming was completed to attract future filming revenue. The set remained for about three weeks until TTC fire inspectors deemed the set a hazard (steel girders, signs and benches were plastic and wood), so the set was torn down and disposed of. See more »
Aggie's Apple notebook appears to have its trademark logo on the cover upside down. This is how the G3 PowerBook is designed and is not an error. Starting with the subsequent G4 Powerbook, Apple reversed the logo such that it's upright when the laptop is in use. See more »

Here's another interesting kidnap story. Sean Bean always plays a believable villain and Michael Douglas usually plays roles that keep the audience's attention....so the almost- two hours go by pretty quickly. The whole cast, actually, pretty good with no one person standing out.
The story loses points because the ending goes on too long and has the standard villain-holds-the-gun-and-doesn't shoot-too long cliché which drives critics, me included crazy. That, and a bit too many f-words in here by the female cop (Jennifer Esposito) which simply aren't necessary, and a few other holes all reduce this from a sure 9-star to an "8.....but don't misunderstand: it's worth a look.
