While in post-production on this film, director Joseph Kahn appeared in an episode of MTV's Cribs (2000). He didn't want to, but relented when MTV told him they would bring the film's stars on Total Request Live (1998) in exchange. See more »
When the group is being chased by the Reapers through "The Palms", the bikes change from actual sport bikes, to "SuperMoto" bikes dressed up to resemble the sport bikes. A Supermoto bike is essentially a dirt bike, usually 4 stroke, with street bike rims and tires, that usually race on tracks made mostly of asphalt. This would have been done to allow the bikes to be jumped in the several scenes, something which could not have been done with regular sport bikes. See more »

Various changes were made to secure a PG-13 rating (for example, the head through the car window; the re-dubbed line, "You were always a punk"). These changes exist in every released version of the film. See more »
This should have been much much better. Is it too much to ask for a brainless action flick that actually entertains! There is too much CGI which ruins the action scenes, the screenplay is clichéd, and the characters mostly annoying. Ice Cube seems embarrassed by some of the dialog he has to utter. This would have been better off as a tongue-in-cheek campy thriller. Sadly, the writers expect us to take what's spoken seriously. Martin Henderson looks lost most of the time. Some outrageously inserted product placement further adds to viewer misery. Avoidable.
