The opening scene where Jackson Hammond pulls into the Coastal gas station (located at the corner of Texas Avenue and 6th Street) was filmed in Kemah, TX. When he takes Natalie Voss as his hostage, there is an empty grass field in the backdrop - the field is now the location of a Passport Inn. See more
The 'Welcome to Newport Beach' sign seen during the chase is obviously fake - the sign with the fountains is actually the Mecom Fountain located in the Houston, TX Museum District. See more
For me, it's the respect and power that the position commands. I don't know whether to be busting bad guys or signing autographs. It's kinda like being a star.
After the end credits have finished, Charlie Sheen, in a clown suit sitting behind the steering wheel, recites the, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning," speech from the movie Apocalypse Now. Charlie's father, Martin Sheen, was the star of the movie. See more
