Trivia

The border crossing scene which was a stand in for the San Ysidro Port of Entry was filmed at the Hardy Toll Road North Toll Plaza a few miles south of Interstate 45 from the Montgomery County line; at the time of filming this section of the Hardy Toll Road was still under construction. On July 16, 2016 the Harris County Toll Road Authority demolished the toll booth (along with the one south of Beltway 8 adjacent to Bush Intercontinental Airport) making the entire stretch of the Hardy Toll Road electronically tolled (which includes the opening of the interchange connecting the Hardy Toll Road to the Grand Parkway Segment G, which connects Interstate 45 with Interstate 69/US 59 (Eastex Freeway). The climax of the chase when the vehicles approach the border crossing is in fact the southbound lanes of the Hardy Toll Road. See more »

This movie doesn't get old
27 January 2009 | by addvictim29See all my reviews

I'm giving it 8 stars for reasons other than Kristy Swanson. Yes, obviously this movie isn't a masterpiece nor was it made to be. It was made to be a fun action movie that wouldn't disappoint. I watch this movie ALL the time and it never gets old (premium channels seem to LOVE it). The plot is so simple that it leaves so much room for climax and twists...if that makes any sense. I mean, how could you go wrong with Ron Jeremy filming news coverage of Charlie Sheen being chased down by Henry Rollins and the Red Hot Chili Peppers while falling in love with Buffy the Vampire Slayer at 120 mph?! You can't. This one's a classic in my book (which also includes Weekend at Bernie's, Home Alone, and Bandits).
