When filming wrapped up on time and the editing was proceeding at a fast pace, Warner Bros. considered opening the film in late August - a mere three months after it finished shooting. They later opted to release the pic in late Feb the following year. See more »
The M1A1 offered for sale is reported to have reactive armour and a 90mm cannon. The M1A1 clearly hasn't got the reactive armour skirts on it (Reactive armour are a series of raised explosive plates added to the outside of the tank) and they have always come with a 105mm cannon on the M1, later models having a 120mm cannon, A 90mm cannon would have been impossible to come by having been phased out by the appearance of the M1A1.

I didn't expect a spectacular film, just something that would keep me
entertained for the majority of it. I got just that. Jet Li's fight scenes
were worth my while and quite well done. The addition of Mark D. was a nice
addition, he is a great opponnet for Li. I just wish they had more screen
time together. The biggest weak spot to this film was DMX. He is not even
close to a good actor, and he can't do entertaining fight scenes, and is
very weak when emotional scenes are being done (ie. with his daughter here).
This film could have been much better if there had been some other angle
than a kidnapped daughter. Overall I think this movie while not excellant,
was pretty good. Fans of Jet Li might like it, if you can stand most of his
other U.S. films, than this will be more of the same.
