The make and model of the car that Ed Porter (James Frecheville) was driving, to Mike Regan's (Pierce Brosnan's) house to fix his system, was a 1970 Chrysler 300. See more »
When Porter picks up Kaitlyn at school, she is wearing ankle boots with her short school uniform skirt. In the next scene, just arriving at her home, she is still wearing the same uniform skirt but now with knee high socks and loafers. See more »
Bizarre movie -- which might make it worth watching
This is a bizarre movie -- for reasons few will notice. It's a thriller about a wealthy man who founded and is CEO of a big private jet manufacturing company. Quite rich, Brosnan gets entangled with a deranged computer hacker working as an I.T. temp in his company. It's perhaps a mediocre movie, but I was transfixed by the tale.
You see, this wealthy CEO -- seeking to make much more money by taking the company public -- was the GOOD GUY. His employees really liked him, and they had a great working relationship.
I can't recall the last movie I watched where a profit-seeking wealthy person was the hero. I kept expecting his fatal capitalist flaw to appear -- uncontrollable greed, yada, yada, yada. It didn't happen.
(Yeah, Bruce Wayne was wealthy, but never do you hear him discussing making more money. Just giving his daddy's money away, making more Batman toys -- and living large.)
I'm not necessarily recommending the movie to you, but perhaps it's worth seeing JUST for this "man bites dog" reason. It's a reminder that it's not ABSOLUTELY necessary for movie makers to always portray rich people as villains.
One thing's for sure -- it won't start a trend in movies. Not a chance.
