Trivia

Goofs

When Dez talks to the girl in the "play room" scene, a close-up of her is shown on the TV screen. Then the camera operator starts moving backwards and the camera that feeds the TV screen zooms out too quickly so that the film camera (presumably a Steadicam system) has not yet left the viewing angle of the TV camera and can clearly be seen on the left side of the TV for a moment.

Great
11 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I never have been a Paul Walker fan, but when i found out the talented Wayne Kramer was making a new movie i had to go see it. I enjoyed this movie very much. Many people say that it was too violent and profane. I think the violence and use of profanity fit the movie's dark atmosphere very well. I think this is one of the best action/mobster movie of the year so far, if the movie is still playing near you and you are over 13 i think you should give this one a try, the movie is full of twists and turns, although i think the final twist should of been left out and i think some of the vulgar language could of been left out, but those are minor issues.So if you are looking for a fun, action packed, dark,edgy, and very stylish film i suggest you go see Running Scared.
