The character of Detective Rydell (played by Chazz Palminteri) is an inside joke by writer/director Wayne Kramer as a tip of the hat to the film THE COWBOYS. The character of Anzor in the film is obsessed with the John Wayne film THE COWBOYS, specifically the part where John Wayne is shot in the back by Bruce Dern, which later becomes Anzor's own fate. The director of THE COWBOYS was Mark Rydell - therefore, Detective RYDELL. See more »

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.
