When Nick puts the gun to the head of one of Billy Darley's men, he asks the man where he is. The man says "Stygian Street". Stygian (2000) is the title of one of James Wan's student films. Stygian Street is also the name of the street of Jigsaw's first lair in Saw (2004), another Wan film. "Stygian" usually refers to the River Styx (near Hades, the underworld). See more »
Toward the end of the shootout in the "Office" chapel, Nick's handgun runs out of ammo and the slide is locked open. He continues to pull the trigger and the gun makes 2 clicking sounds. In reality, once a semi-automatic handgun is empty and the slide is locked open, the trigger is no longer cocked and cannot be pulled. 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!
