Did You Know?

Trivia

The scene near the beginning of the movie where Chance blasts the doors open had to be shot twice. During the first take, an inefficient amount of explosives were used that didn't entirely blow the doors away, so primer cord was used for the final shot seen in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Chance gets out of his car to meet for the final showdown, we see him holding a Glock 17. However, upon entering the building we see that he is inexplicably brandishing a 1911. See more »

Not supposed to be Ong Bak
26 May 2009 | by k_pocamadreSee all my reviews

Kristal, the fifth commandment is "Thou shalt not kill" for the overwhelming number of Christians in the world. There are a few protestant sects that split the First Commandment into two and then combine the ninth and tenth into one. For them the Fifth would end up as "Honour you father and mother". However for Catholics, Orthodox, and other historical churches, the Fifth Commandment it the one that prohibits murder.

That said, this is not a great movie but this isn't supposed to be an epic movie that takes itself too seriously. Instead, it is simply an action film worthy of a couple hours distraction.
