Terrie Batson naturally speaks with a North Carolina accent and recorded all of her lines in the movie without altering it. She then had no idea that her voice was going to be dubbed over in the final cut of the movie, and only found out when she and friends and family saw it together in the theater for the first time.

During the final fight scene, Fender stops a knife with his forearm. Pausing the film shows an arm on a stick. See more »
The biggest mistake they made here was not stretching the fight scenes as much as possible.
The dialog was horrid and the plot itself was a very abbreviated Road Warrior retread. The attempts at sentimentality (the burning wedding cake, the scared kids) didn't even work. The opening narration only let you know you were seeing an extended chase scene.
However, the fight scenes ROCKED. Van Damme proves that he may be better off as a man of few words. The endless bone breaking and face busting kept attentions. The revenge plot was just there for an excuse.
Van Damme's best? No way. (That would be Bloodsport.) But worth a look as long as your FF button works.
