On several occasions the detached car is a different model (Toronto class H-6) from what it is most of the time (class H-1). One obvious difference is the H-6's black rectangles around the upper headlights. The first instance of this goof is when the police tactical unit arrives in the tunnel. Also, just after the signals are set to red, the car number can be seen to be 5718. See more »
To begin with, I have to say that i have not seen the original and i have not read the book.
Although the subject was totally new to me, i still didn't like it. Take a classic hijacking story, take out the cops (who barely appear in the film), and you get the story for this movie.
Well this remake has even more things that make it bad. Examples? The bad guys are very very poorly built. We don't get to find out anything about them, about their past, about their plans for the future, about the relationship between them. There is no chemistry between them, they barely talk to each other, they give you the feeling that they just met or that they hate each other. Vincent d'Onofrio gives a fair performance as Mr Blue, but also i have to say i totally disliked the ending-- probably you will do the same.
There are many other bad things going with the movie, but i'll end here. My vote? 3 out of 10.
