Trivia

Originally, Stuart Lafferty's character, Brendan Hume, was to wear a hockey helmet with no mask or visor. After a local hockey player, who was the younger brother of an extra seen in the film, saw this as unbelievable seeing how every other player has a full cage face mask. The younger hockey player suggested to the crew the use of at least a half shield visor if not a combination full face protective shield. The crew listened and agreed to change the image. The crew purchased a visor from the filming location's pro shop and had a parent of an extra attach the shield properly. See more »

Well Done!
3 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie surprised me. I expected something over acted and plot less. Boy was I wrong. This movie was really good. They show the reality of things that do happen. Kevin Bacon gave a good performance along with Kelly Preston. The Action was good. The violence was brutal and done in a realistic fashion. The language was also heavy and use in every sentence. The only problem with me is that the gang members were a little over done. I think they were kind of over the top including all the tattoos and what not. But besides that the movie was fun and intense.

9/10
