Gerard Butler and his crew are loosely based on former ATF agent, Jay Dobyns, who consulted on the film. Dobyns is best known for his undercover work and his willingness to infiltrate crime organizations, much like Gerard Butler's character. Dobyns makes a cameo in the film at the bar Donnie works at in LA, closing his tab at the bar. See more »
Throughout the film, the license plates for the majority of the vehicles all share a close version of 4PCI*** with the last three numbers being slightly different. This includes several different armored trucks which, in reality, would bear commercial, not passenger, license plates. The marked police cars should display California Exempt license plates too.

Good Movie! Acting is very good for the genre and the situations mostly believable
I normally am not well disposed towards cop movies having been a cop for 24 years. This movie just hits on all cylinders. Some scenarios may not be believable in the real world of policing but they work in the film. It's kind of in the vein of The Shield, another cop show I really enjoyed. Good guys who sometimes act bad, bad guys who have some redeeming qualities. All in all a very good way to spend two and a half hours. Gerard Butler does a great job being the totally dedicated bad ass cop who does whatever it takes to take down the bad guys, even at the expense of his family. Never expected to like this movie but it is right up there with many of my favorite cop films.
