Trivia

The Tazer gun used in the arrest was real. It wasn't fully charged so it wouldn't hurt anyone, but while filming, it actually recoiled and shocked Shane Fuller (Kevin Downes), not the gangster. He then fell down and cut his hand on a brick. See more »

Goofs

During the carjack scene there are several shots of the interior of the truck, and the gear select lever is obviously in the Park position even though they are "driving". See more »

Quotes

Javier Martinez: Why did you ask me to help?
Adam Mitchell: Because I thought you were a guy named Javier.

Exciting
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a great movie. It is entertaining, exciting, draws you in an keeps you, stirs your emotions, and leaves a positive message. Most other Hollywood movies are shallow and leave you exhausted and wanting for more substance. My time and money is too valuable to just be "amused." It was fun seeing so many people that I have not connected to in a long time. I would go to more movies, but the are very few that have any substance. I hope people can spread the word about this movie. I think our society could turn around if dads took a greater role in the lives of their children. It is not hard, it takes courage to go against the modern culture of "if it feels good, do it" and chasing after the trappings of success, like money and possessions.
