There are at least two Jeeps used during the final chase sequence. When Tuck and FDR commandeer the the Jeep at the restaurant, it is an automatic with a column mounted gear selector. You actually see Tuck use it to put it in gear. Later during the chase sequence, the Jeep is a manual shift. There is a close-up shot of the pedals when Tuck applies the brakes and a clutch pedal is clearly visible. At the end of the scene they show a side-view of the Jeep and the shift lever is obvious coming up out of the floor. See more »

I saw trailers for this in the cinema and considered going to see it. Thankfully I didn't waste £8 paying for a ticket. The premise for this seemed great- OK reminiscent of True Lies- but there seemed to be potential for comedy and drama. Potential that is sadly never realised.
Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are both charming leads (Pine needs to stop doing that chewing with his mouth open thing. It makes him look retarded)Reese Witherspoon is possibly a little old for this kind of role- or at least this kind of role with Hardy and Pine- but she plays the role well enough.
The problem is that there is no plot to speak of, very little action and precious few laughs. The film is beautifully lit but the editing is horrible. It reminds the viewer of Quantum of Solace with its action sequences that could be memorable except the viewer can't see what is happening. It doesn't look a cheap film and the cast and premise could have made for something memorable but how could the end result be so unsatisfying. Vapid, bland, predictable and empty its like overdosing on cake icing because there is no cake underneath.
All the way through I couldn't help wonder how so much could have gone wrong until as the end credits rolled I saw it was directed by McG . Nothing more to be said.
