When Creasy reads the address of Aurelio Sanchez on the piece of paper, you can see that the street name is 'Via Appia'. This street doesn't actually exist in New-Mexico, but it obviously refers to the ancient Via Appia road in Rome. Heavy criminals used to be crucified by the side of that road, to make a statement towards society and especially towards other criminals. See more »
In the scene where Creasy is cutting off the man's finger in the car, if you look closely in the background you can see a crew member steps into the shot. See more »
The gunshot holds no fear, say it.

You welcome the sound. In fact it's the sound that sets you free. You are a prisoner on this block until that sound sets you free.

Special thanks to Mexico City. A very special place. See more »
This is by far one of the better made movies and didn't leave me disappointed at all. The sound track along with finely shot hand-held camera work was exquisite . The are always chances a movie won't hold ones beliefs as well as another, but I felt that rhythm of this picture and the timing was excellent. Dakota Fanning is rapidly becoming a staple in movie that require a child with an old soul personality and she has never disappointed me with her talent. As for Mr. Washington and of course Christopher Walken they both exceed the challenge of showing the darkest sides of humanity trying to move to the light.
