Just minutes into the picture, Breslin finishes a phone call: he hangs up, and is just exiting the booth when we hear the distinct sound of a coin hitting the coin return slot and NOT falling into the phone company coin bin, as it would if the person had made a successful outgoing call. See more »
Excellent cast, scrip and acting (yes, acting). You can't expect Sly and Arnie to play Shakespeare, and they won't. They are meant to kick ass and that's what they do.
The story goes by smoothly and fast. Dialogues and sequence are really well written. Main characters bring you in the movie and Jim Caviezel is great as the villain. So is Vince Jones and the rest of the characters.
This isn't for everyone but I can't believe this movie is flying so under the radar. What a shame. This is old school, action packed thriller.
