Trivia

The red muscle car the protagonists switch to first after ditching Roberts' Hyundai instruction vehicle is a 1972 Ford Falcon XA 351 GT. See more »

Goofs

The company assassination car that flips over is clearly a completely different model to the one that is used in the chase (presumably budgeting for the film). After it flips, you can see the levers that lifted it, sticking out from the undercarriage. See more »

just awful
16 June 2014 | by dalysimonSee all my reviews

Seriously bad performances. I am guessing the director was asleep or had specified clauses in each of the actors contracts that they could not rehearse and were only allowed one take for each scene.

Production standards date back beyond Mad Max low budget cheapies and the script was just awful. This is a genuine rotten tomato. I believe it fails on every level. I am surprised he can command A list actors.

Who pays Brian Trenchard Smith this kind of money; because he comes across as definitely lacking. And I am guessing after this piece of detritus, very few would be likely to waste $12 mil on this kind of embarrassment again.

Unless its like some kind of money laundering scam?
