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 »

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. ...

Solid cable movie
22 April 2004 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

I watched this on cable the other night and was very pleasantly surprised. It's well done, with solid acting from old pros Madsen and Van Peebles and very tight directing. The documentary style works well, and unlike most cops vs. robbers movies it shows the motivation and thoughts of the bad guys without glorifying them. It's obviously a bit of a PR piece for the LAPD, but it also makes some really good points about the availability of assault weapons and the failings of the justice and political system in keeping crooks from getting them. The locations used in the movie were the actual locations where the shootout took place, and this added immeasurably to the realism of the story. This film is a real cut above most cable fare and is really worth watching.
