In the scene where Cataleya rams into the police car, it is in a place outside New Orleans called Fat City. The bar Uncle Larry's, was actually a real bar at the time but is no longer there. Also in the scene, briefly, you can see a sign for Circle K and a split second later you see Brother's; it's actually the same building. The gas station was under construction during filming and Brother's had bought the Circle K franchise. See more »
When Emilio takes his niece for an interview with the principal of her new school, we see the word PRINCIPAL stencilled on the inside of her office door. The logical place for this would be on the outside. See more »
The latest work from Europacorp didn't disappoint me. I love Luc Besson's mad action flicks and this was no different. Zoe Saldana is class as the sexy killer ready to do anything to get revenge on the criminals who murdered her family. It's territory we've seen over and over but I enjoyed it. The films action, when it comes, is thrilling. There are some inventive kills and a good little straightner at the end involving toothbrushes (believe it or not). Saldana will probably come a long way after this in terms of action roles and it's nice to see an actress who can act as well as kick ass. Lennie James is a bit on the didgy side with an accent that sometimes sounds like a drunken person at an Indian restaurant doing a bad impression of the waiter. He's a still a good actor all the same. I hope they continue to make these sorts of action films where I can just switch of and enjoy them because as long as they make them, I'll watch them. ***/*****.
