Both Monty and Naturelle played high school basketball; another scene depicts a playground game. Also, Frank is reminded by his boss that they have courtside seats for an upcoming game. See more »
In the scene with Nikolai, you hear Nikolai rack the slide, but the hammer is not back in the next shot. The camera then looks away (at Monty) and then back at Nikolai, and you can clearly see the slide is locked back and the gun is out of battery. See more »
Honestly it's the best movie I've seen in my 25 years. I've seen it a dozen times now, and I love it more every time. The plot is perfect, the acting is perfect, the cinematography is perfect. The ending segment with Monty and his father is about the most powerful I've ever seen.
So many unforgettable scenes in the movie:
Frank & Monty at the club the last night
The "make me ugly" scene
Monty and his dad in the car
If you haven't seen it, go get it right now. You can't miss this one.
