When Laroche (Cassel) goes over to Schine's house, he tells Schine's daughter in French: "Je m'appelle Laroche, comme une petite roche qui va bientôt baiser ton père par derrière". Translation: "My name is Laroche, like a little rock who will soon screw your father from behind." Then, he tells her that in English, it means: "My name is Laroche, it means a rock. Like the little rocks rolling down a river". See more »
When Charles kills Laroche, the blade is shown close and we see the blood stain and the wound starts bleeding. In the next cut, when Laroche is down and dead, his suit is perfectly clean. See more »
Great movie, Clive Owen was brilliant and its a good change for Jennifer, pure fast paced entertainment, just what it was meant to be! I hope Jennifer does a lot more movies like this to get rid of the good girl type cast. I really liked RZA, his acting was great and his character was believable and very funny. The movie was fast and edge of the seat almost from the start. I found some parts predictable but that didn't ruin the movie for me. Some of the things that I predicted happened, but not when and how, so it still keeps you guessing. I buy a lot of DVD's and this movie is going on my list of movies to buy for sure. I definitely recommend this movie.
