The surnames of the two lead characters are Bishop and Castle, which are both chess pieces. These are obviously in reference to the theme of the film, which is that the people involved are manipulated like chess pieces. See more »
Toward the end of the movie when Castle and Bishop drive up and soon meet Tollander, you can see the driver-side window going down. However, a few seconds later when they stop where Tollander is standing the window is up. See more »
This is a very good movie. Good story, excellent action sequences. Tony Todd makes an awsome villian. Mark Dacascos is good as usual. Don't expect anything like DRIVE though. Mark has just one short fight scene. But that doesn't matter because this isn't a kung fu movie. It's a thriller, and a damn good one at that!
