The pistol recovered from the corner grocery store robbery is a Beretta 85BB in 380 ACP. It is also the gun Gary Sinise uses as an additional back up gun in the final scenes. See more »
While Mel Gibson's character was driving to the quarry, notice that the same store fronts keep passing by. The most obvious one would be the yellow sign or a few lights that keeping repeating. This was because they were just driving up and down one section of Route 4 in NJ. See more »
This is definitely one of those films that grabs a hold of you and does not seem to want to let go.Ron Howard's excellent direction and Mel Gibson giving perhaps the performance of his career make this film worth seeing.Those of us who have children, although many of us may not have the courage to push the limits as Gibson's character did here,may appreciate this movie more so than those who do not.In fact,I might have been more reserved and cautious,even though I love my son just as much.This is a definite thrill ride from start to finish,and if you have a strong enough heart to handle it,then this film is definitely for you.
