Trivia

During production of the hockey scene, actor Stuart Lafferty was nearly injured when he was standing on the ice leaning against the goal as the extras, who were actual hockey players, warmed up. Lafferty was initially called off the ice by the parent of an extra who was concerned for Lafferty's safety. The parent was confronted by a member of the production crew who stated "Sir you are not permitted to talk to the talent" to which the parent responded with "alright, well your star is leaning up against the net that these players are shooting pucks at...I do not think you want your star to have to go to the hospital with an apparent head wound from a rogue puck hitting him in the face", the production member than quickly called for Lafferty to leave the ice.

Goofs

On 00:52:00 when Nick finish phone conversation with his wife, he start driving the car and suddenly turns for 180 degrees. Two cars which were coming from opposite direction starting to brake and both of them made a famous movie tire squeal. Movie was filmed in 2007. and both cars as I know are looking at least made in 2000. or later. Looks silly that they don't have an ABS system. See more »

Excellent!!!
3 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

I know many people on here have posted that this film isn't based in reality and I for one am GLAD!!! We see reality too often day in and day out on the news, and the sad truth of it is, the bad guys usually get away with murder and don't suffer any repercussions for it. So it's great to see a film that delivers to us what it would be like if justice was served! Director, James Wan of the original "SAW" movie shows us he is not a one trick pony and can deliver his talents past just the horror genre. Kevin Bacon and the rest of the cast did a wonderful job delivering a very believable grief stricken family, I would definitely recommend this film!
