Goofs

While Michael is getting the minivan spray painted, the windows of the car change from tinted to non-tinted and back to tinted again.

There is no body damage on the van from being in a car chase or from being shot.

There is no blood on the windows from the woman being shot.

The red paint would not dry as fast as it did and the shine would not be glassy.

With the van going as fast as it did through the streets, there would be smears across the van body and windows from the paint and there would be massive over-spray on the windows from being improperly covered during the painting process.

The amount of preparation needed to do a very basic paint job is about 3 hours.

For the paint to dry to a semi-dry state of being non-smudging or tacky would be about 7 hours.

The paint to have a glazed and shiny look with need several applications - as well as a sealant, hardener and a glass finish to be backed in a heated room.

The final result would not be finished with minutes - but rather days.

Michael's van in the last scene would not have the shine and paint quality as it did - because of the lack of preparation set up and base coats and clear coats and hardeners and heat applications used. See more »

Good Story But Don't Let The Trailers Fool You
28 February 2013 | by JapanGaijinSee all my reviews

I watched this last week on February 23rd at the theaters. I am not sure why this was released here in Japan well before the rest of the World because Japan tends to be last in getting movies released.

It was a good story overall and I must say excellent cinematography. The film takes places in Johannesburg, South Africa and the film does an excellent job showing the ins and outs of the city.

Paul Walker does a great job playing Michael Woods. His role reminds me of his role in Running Scared as he seems to have a short fuse and quite foul-mouthed. Don't let the trailers of this movie fool you however. You see Paul Walker and car chases and might expect a Fast and the Furious type of flick. However this movie is more of a car adventure/drama than action/car chase movie. I can say however that most of the movie takes place in a car.

I liked this movie overall but it is not the type of movie that you rush out to see in the theaters. There aren't enough action sequences to get the theater effect. Wait for DVD.
