Jean-Claude Van Damme,
In one of the early scenes when they take the spare tyre out of the trunk it has a hub cap fitted to the wheel. Normally a spare would not have a hub cap fitted; the hub cap on the wheel with the flat tyre would end up on the spare after it has been fitted. See more »
The good: The cinematography is really nice (except for a view hiccups).
The bad: Jean-Claude Van Damme does not so bad as usual (isn't much in the movie)
The ugly: Characters and story The whole movie doesn't make any sense - not even a little bit. I don't wanna spoil for the brave that sit trough the movie - but its bad, really bad.
In this movie you will see characters (yes I mean plural) that have no soul, are cliché, unbelievable and really stupid.
And if I say stupid I really mean it - almost nobody of the main characters would live that long if they where like this forever (but the movie didn't mention a chemical plant accident where everybody got insane - so ...)
For me it's always surprising to see that really bad scipts are getting money (and we talk about millions) - where clearly no money can't be made. OK yes Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez could make this film work (but hey they would cast the right actors and give them some crazy lines to work with)
