The scenes in the mental hospital were shot in the former Bangour Village Hospital, a disused insane asylum, in West Lothian, Scotland, near Edinburgh. As The Jacket was released, several other film scouts expressed an interest in the hospital building as a location, but the area had already been earmarked for housing development. Since then, the housing development has been scrapped, and Bangour Village Hospital still stands as it did at the time of filming, and continues to attract ghost-hunters as certain of the patient villas are believed to be haunted.

Awesome movie with interesting plot and outstanding actors.
Reading the plot description one could make the mistake and expect some rather low quality B "action" flick.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Out comes an outstanding movie which will capture you from the beginning to the end, guaranteed.
Its not your typical action-flick or cheaply made horror movie by any means.
Adrien Brody again proves he is probably one of the best actors we have currently, in my opinion he is just phenomenal. He gives the story depth and credibility. Kira's performance was "ok", not much too say here (sexy as always of course) and Daniel Craig and Kris Kristofferson did a great job also.
I watched the movie and it immediately became one of my favorites.
Highly recommended! G.
Kira's performance was "ok"
