When Oleg says he listens to "Kvasha", this is a direct reference to not only the music type, but also Oleg Kvasha who first played for the NHL team Florida Panthers back in 1996. The first name "Oleg" also happens to be Cameron Bright's character's first-name: Oleg Yugorsky. See more »
When Dez talks to the girl in the "play room" scene, a close-up of her is shown on the TV screen. Then the camera operator starts moving backwards and the camera that feeds the TV screen zooms out too quickly so that the film camera (presumably a Steadicam system) has not yet left the viewing angle of the TV camera and can clearly be seen on the left side of the TV for a moment.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie with Paul Walker as the star attraction, but this movie was thoroughly entertaining and I would highly recommend seeing it.Paul Walker gives a good performance although Cameron Bright steals the show even though I've always saw the kid as creepy after seeing him in The Butterfly Effect. The action in this movie is non-stop and it keeps you guessing up to the very end. I enjoyed how the movie was shot with New Jersey as a backdrop, the movie covered a lot of ground and used various locations that added to the intrigue. This movie provides a nice twist on modern day mob movies. I do agree with a review that I read that said that the gun floating around served as a maguffin (not sure if I spelled that correct) the action provides a high level of entertainment and excitement.
