An undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighborhood that's surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord and his plot to devastate the entire city.
Near the end of the movie, a man looks inside the minivan, and tells Michael to "Burn it all away!". Michael is played by Paul Walker, who soon after died in a car crash that set the Porsche ablaze. Incidentally, that car was red, just like the freshly repainted minivan. See more »
After the glass is shot in the van, the windows would have shattered into tiny pieces based on the location of the hole and the pressure of the door opening and closing.
By the time the van went through the car wash, the brushes and rollers would have broken the windows of the van with the pressure applied to the broken windows.
During the course of driving through the car wash, the windows do not leak from the holes in the window. See more »
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.
