Toward the end of the movie, "Dog" calls the cell phone carrier to find out if there had been any calls made to Texas. The person on the other end of the line says yes and proceeds to give him the number which has the area code 405. 405 is an Oklahoma City/central Oklahoma area code. Since the line he calls is a land line, whose area code should be 409 for Galveston, and is not a cell phone, this is not possible. See more »

Depending on who directed and wrote a film like this you would have a blockbuster on your hands but this one fell short a little. It wasn't bad but it wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be either. This film could have used a little work as far as the story-line goes. I think a better written script would have improved this film a lot more. Although there were a couple of plot twists that made this film a little more interesting I expected more trills and more action. Also, being that this film starred Robert De Niro I expected a whole lot more. Robert De Niro is a very brilliant actor and I thought this film was far below his caliber and Morris Chestnut is a very talented actor as well but I've seen him make a few other theatrical mistakes besides this one. This film did have the potential to be so much more but even with its draw backs it still wasn't too bad.
