At one point the announcer says 'kick save by Lundqvist', the Ranger goalie, when the puck is in the Devil's end. Later, it says 'empty net' above a score of 3-2 Rangers, when the Devil's goalie in the net; the leading team doesn't pull its goalie.

I'm the only one ever cared about you. And all of that ended an hour ago when you killed my son. I'm comin' after your boy with everything I got.
I won't let you take him, Shawn.
You got no choice. And when it's done, and it will be done, you and I are gonna meet back here at this restaurant, at this same table that I used to share with my boy, and I'm gonna look you in the eyes just like you're lookin' me in the eyes right now. And I'm gonna see how empty they are without your son in the world...

The pairing of Neeson/Harris in a movie like this was an excellent choice. After seeing this movie I now can't visualize anyone else playing the roles. Both did an awesome job. The storyline is easy to follow unlike some movies who have (3) sub-plots, 18 different people to keep track of and a dialog spoken where you can only understand every 3rd word. A long movie but because of the content time goes too quickly. There isn't any part of this movie that was slow much less boring because of it. If your a "Taken" fan then you'll go away from this movie totally satisfied. Don't compare the dollar take to "Cinderella". Of course "Cinderella" took in much more. The reason is that parents to a gazillion kids bought tickets. These were the only two movies that opened this week. Give it time. Word of mouth will up the take for "RAN". It won't ever beat "Cinderella" but then would you choose this over the Neeson/Harris movie if your over the age of 18? The fast action in "RAN" is as good, if not better, then any of the (3)"Taken" movies. It will hold your interest from beginning to end and have you wishing it were longer in length. A superior thriller/action movie. Can't wait for the DVD to be among my collection.
