Trivia

Goofs

In the scene with Nikolai, you hear Nikolai rack the slide, but the hammer is not back in the next shot. The camera then looks away (at Monty) and then back at Nikolai, and you can clearly see the slide is locked back and the gun is out of battery. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Monty Brogan: Look at this. He's alive.
Kostya Novotny: This dog, how you call it? Bull pit?
Monty Brogan: No, Pit-Bull. But that's not a pit bull. I don't know, I don't know what he is. I bet he lost somebody some money though. Give me your gun.
Kostya Novotny: Shooting him?
Monty Brogan: Yeah.

Scattered, overlong, some fine performances.
24 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Like buckshot, all over the place. Somewhere in here there is a very good (maybe great) film, but it needs to lose 20-35 minutes.

That being said, fine performances all around.

Spike needs to preach less, stop trying to use "cool" camera and editing techniques, leave that to the music video crossover directors.

Spike Lee is a better director than this movie would lead someone to believe.
