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.

When I saw the trailer for this movie on TV, I thought it looked interesting. The way the movie was shot and the effects were showed off somewhat, and that's what appealed to me the most about the trailer.
I thought I was going to see a gangster flick, great, but I got something else, which turned out to be better. I would call it an odd mix of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Go, Goodfellas, and Kill Bill. Based on content, cinematography and story. I was enticed throughout the entire movie, and it kept me from yawning. I loved the story, the characters, and the twists and turns this movie provided.
The acting was quite good and believable. Paul Walker impressed me in this one, and I ate up the gangster and cop stereotypical roles as well. The kids did well also, except the main character's son is a bit annoying simply because he never listens to his parents, but this is not due to his acting but the character he plays.
I went to see the movie last night, and the theater was completely empty! Either people don't see movies on Saturday nights anymore, or people didn't feel that they wanted to see this film. I have no idea why. It's a shame, like most other reviewers have pointed out, that this movie did not do better at the box office.
Go see this if you like action movies with an interesting plot.
