Trivia

The photo that Ron Livingston (Donnie Anderson) holds of his "dad" is actually the real life LAPD SWAT officer Donnie Anderson who was one of the 3 SWAT officers who engaged the final suspect and whom Ron Livingstons character is loosely based on. You can also see him and other officers being awarded the LAPD Medal for Valour for their part in the ordeal at the end of the film. See more »

Goofs

In several frontal shots of the robbers firing their AK 47 assault rifles, the weapons are shown as having a circular muzzle flash. In reality, AK 47s without silencers or flash suppressors (not seen in the movie) have a bow-tie shaped muzzle flash. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Frank McGregor: Ninety percent of cops go through their whole career without ever firing their gun. That day, that was roughly 1500 rounds fired. We were armed with pistols. These guys were slinging automatic machine guns. An AK-47 machine gun is a weapon that was designed for war. A high-velocity round invented to penetrate armor and kill their target. You use them in a bank job, and you've done something no one in America had ever done before. Danger's all around us. In the streets. In the car. ...

Commercial Spot
10 October 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Yeah, Madsen's character - whilst talking to the woman from the TV station - is right: the LAPD IS a corrupt, violent and racist police. And this movie changes nothing about it. Okay, here are the good cops, the moral cops, even a black one, whow, a Christian, a martyr. But this is a fairy tale, admit it. Reality is not like that. And most important for the action fans: The shoot out is boring. It's just shooting and shooting and shooting. Nothing more. Play Counter Strike, then you will at least have something to do. The only moral of this film is: The LAPD is good now. No more bad cops in it. If you like uncritical, euphemistic commercials for police and military service, watch this movie. It's the longest commercial I've ever seen. (2 Points for camera and editing).
