The hockey game scene was filmed at the first (and at the time only) Ice facility in Columbia, South Carolina. The hockey players seen in the film are (or were) members of hockey programs throughout the area. Scenes in which you cannot see actor Stuart Lafferty's face but his character, Brendan Hume, is present, local hockey player Sam Waller was used as a body double; Waller was uncredited. Some of the extras that were seen during hockey action sequence were the same that can be seen in an earlier scene (on the unrated version on DVD), when Kelly Preston (Helen Hume) and Jordan Garrett (Lucas Hume) are discussing an in class conflict, the camera shows Brendan Hume hanging out at school with his teammates. Once again a few of the same hockey players can been seen once again during the scene of Brendan's Funeral. See more »
At the end of the parking garage scene, the white bumper of an impacted car is seen resting on the undercarriage of the Ford Taurus. In the next shot, it isn't there. It reappears in the later, evening shot of the same thing, when detective Wallis is surveying the scene. See more »
I know many people on here have posted that this film isn't based in reality and I for one am GLAD!!! We see reality too often day in and day out on the news, and the sad truth of it is, the bad guys usually get away with murder and don't suffer any repercussions for it. So it's great to see a film that delivers to us what it would be like if justice was served! Director, James Wan of the original "SAW" movie shows us he is not a one trick pony and can deliver his talents past just the horror genre. Kevin Bacon and the rest of the cast did a wonderful job delivering a very believable grief stricken family, I would definitely recommend this film!
