Trivia The hands seen performing card tricks in the beginning of the film belong to writer/director Damian Nieman (who's hand wears a spade ring), R. Paul Wilson, Jason England, and Earl Nelson, all real life card mechanics. Nieman also taught (along with Earl Nelson and R. Paul Wilson) Sylvester Stallone and Stuart Townsend how to perform their card tricks for the film. See more »
