Trivia

When Rose is arrested, the camera pans behind the Jeep showing the Ohio license plate "C3J 46E5" with a county code sticker "75" in the bottom left corner indicating Shelby County, Ohio. The license plate is a custom plate as in that standard issue plates are formatted as three letters and four numbers (AAA 0000) and was registered after 2004 because Ohio license plates changed formats in 2004.

Alternate Versions

In Canada, there is rumored to exist an extended cut of the film which runs approx. 132 minutes. It is also said to be the full uncut version of the film itself, which to this day, has never been released outside Canada. This version, being the full version of the movie that was filmed contains longer, sometimes more explicit scenes, more disturbing features (as well as extended scenes that explain everything unlike in the American Theatrical Cut) that was possibly all cut to prevent an NC-17 rating in the USA.

User Reviews

 
Finally, a good, accurate game/film crossover.
20 April 2006 | by phaykeSee all my reviews

First off, the downsides: Some parts of the movie seemed a little drawn out, the film was two hours, and at certain times, you could feel that. It's far-fetched, and I can imagine some people rolling their eyes at the storyline, and there WILL be some people walking out saying "that was a stupid movie". (As many people responded to Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.) Of course, some of them will be saying that in response to the sheer amount of gore and violence, which brings me into the 'upsides': This movie certainly had it's 'wow' moments with shock, anticipation, and gore, especially near the climax. Scenes and even alleyways and monsters from the games were almost identical. If you've played the games you will get a lot of deja vu. (For example, the camera goes crooked at exactly the same time and place it does in one of the scenes in the game.) Also, a lot of the sounds and music tracks from the games are used, and so are the monsters. The entire feel of the games is preserved in the film, and you will have trouble keeping your feet on the floor the entire movie. The creepy presentation works, and if you haven't played any of the games, this movie will scare you in new ways.
