Trivia

When Frank and Bernie step out together for the first time to go after Manny's killer, they arrive at an apartment building. The entrance to the building has an access code intercom system keypad and a residence listing to the right. The residence names on the list are all recent (2013-2014) and former Seattle Seahawks players including Seattle Seahawks legend S. Largent (Steve Largent). See more »

Goofs

The chase scene in the mountains is in fact merely exterior footage from Peter Hyams' 1990 film 'Narrow Margin' re edited together with interior shots of the actors in the vehicle.

This causes obvious problems as Danny Glover's is not Caucasian like Gene Hackman's stunt driver in 'Narrow Margin.'

The back seat of the vehicle is also unoccupied in 'Narrow Margin' thus not matching the new interior shots. See more »

Hard to pigeon hole.
17 May 2014 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

I am at a loss to place this film, I'm not even sure if I enjoyed it or not, or if I could recommend it.

This is an action film with a ridiculous plot where some old guys have to go and beat up some other guys; but that really isn't important.

This isn't a 'serious' action movie like Die Hard or Transporter but it isn't a full send up like Black Dynamite or Gravy Train.

The production is strange. Normally when someone throws a grenade you get a slow motion sequence of the grenade in flight, followed by a close up of the villains face, then a few seconds of explosion. Here grenade leaves hand the next frame is bad guy blowing up.

There is lots of action, the fight scenes are fast and furious but aren't particularly well choreographed. Glover and Trejo deliver their cheesy lines and punch people adequately enough.

Don't take this too serious and you may enjoy. I did... I think.
