Near the end of the movie, a man looks inside the minivan, and tells Michael to "Burn it all away!". Michael is played by Paul Walker, who soon after died in a car crash that set the Porsche ablaze. Incidentally, that car was red, just like the freshly repainted minivan. See more »
After the vehicle is spray painted the brief reflection in the shop windows shows a small white truck is following only 2 or 3 meters behind. The shot just before, however, showed clear road though the back window with a sedan some 30 meters behind. See more »
Rare look at the JoBurg while Paul Walker was driving
As some reviewers already pointed out, this movie is closest to Phone Booth in style and theme. In contrast to it, Vehicle 19 fails to keep up the constant level of intensity and escalation. However, it surely was an entertaining flick.
All the negatives of pacing problems aside, reason for 7 stars are twofold: 1) Paul Walker's excellent performance and 2) just driving around in JoBurg was interesting in itself. JoBurg is not the most typical setting for a thriller. Previously, I had written Paul Walker of as a pretty-boy surfer-dude who likes to drive fast cars. But in this one he showed that he is a quality actor who can deliver subtle and intense performances.
