The Mustang Nicolas Cage drives is the same paint scheme, gun-metal gray with black racing stripes, as Eleanor, the 1967 Mustang GT500 which is a major part in the remake of Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000). Which also stars Cage. See more »
During the chase scene with the motorbike, the car's passenger window is both closed (up) and open (down). See more »
Nick Cage has made some good movies, some mediocre movies and some bad movies; Tokarev is the worst. A trite, improbable plot, terrible directing, awful music and inane car chases. I kept hoping it would get better, but though hope may spring eternal, this film dashed all hope. At the end, I presume this was some sort of money laundering exercise for a criminal gang. You know, take a dog's breakfast of a script, use a major star,pay cash everywhere and sell the rights for clean money.
There is nothing to recommend this film. All the acting is sub-par. Not once is there an ounce of emotion created that would reach the audience. To the criminals who made this film I say, okay wash the money, but find a better film. It may be a crime to laundry money, but the real crime is making such a bad film
