Trivia

The scene where CJ meets his fate wasn't intended to be a rain scene, as there was no rain during the actual blackout on August 14th 2003. Production halted several times, in hopes that it would stop. Everytime the rain stopped and the cameras started rolling, it would start to rain again. Finally, the director decided it was destined to be shot this way, thus adding a dramatic effect to the scene. See more »

Diversity in NYC
21 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Initially I did not accept the comments on this movie, however, after reading I did. Possibly, in this neighborhood, it was difficult during this time. I felt the opposite. I thought this time showed an amazing sense of community - everyone came together. All the stores gave free water to people who were walking home as a result of no transportation, etc. Nonetheless, as mentioned, I understand it may not have been the same in all neighborhoods. This was a time that I saw NYC come together like no other less the events of September the eleventh. On another note - is what happened in this movie a true indication of what COULD happen if we lost power for an extended period of time (power which is an EXPECTED utility of Americans)? Yes.
