Trivia

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.

Typical hollywood junk
8 December 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Coming in with very low expectations, considering the way the plot sounded so dumb, I was let down even more after watching the movie. Why does these hollywood movies all end up with the guy/gal who never raised a fist suddenly becomes the fighting Rambo figure, while these career criminals becomes so dumb and careless, all at the same time. Anytime you think to yourself why doesn't the criminal kill or subdue their victims on a certain situation, then you know these dumb acts by them were written in so that the heroine could escape from their grasp.

Situations like when the mom found out they got their daughter in same apt one floor away, why did the whole gang run off and send one guy to finish her unsupervised? Could they have not have easily monitored her through the video system while sending two guys instead? What was the big rush? They had the whole surveillance setup only to abandon it when discovered by someone whom couldn't have done anything anyway. There are many other scenes where people make illogical decisions.

For a desperate doctor in a mental hospital, he sure skipped out on alot of the options available at his disposal like hypnosis or sodium pentothal.

All in all, a really bad film that make you cringe, not for the suspense, but for all the situations where you would say "why didn't they just", "why would they do that" or "this is so dumb". Avoid it at all cost.
