In the opening scene, the first Jamaican drug dealer is killed during a slow motion shotgun blast. In the shot, the shell is being ejected immediately as the shotgun is fired, which should not be the case as the hijackers were carrying pump action shotguns whereby the shell is ejected upon pumping, not firing.

This movie was non-stop. It was full of action. It was intense, and at times surprising. I can see Paul Walker is trying to shed his pretty boy image. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It reminded me of a cross between Pulp Fiction and A history of violence with a twist. There were some moments that down right shocked me. This movie is not for anyone under the age of 17. And if this is your first date with someone...this is not the right choice...it could lead to some awkwardness. The acting was good. I wonder if the studios are gearing Paul Walker for something more. He just might be our next Matthew McConaughey. If you like gritty movies...than you are gonna enjoy this.
