Trivia

After stopping the UPS truck Officer Penny tells the driver "I love it when a plan comes together." This line was used by Hannibal on the TV show "The A-Team", a show referenced earlier in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When the villain is sitting on a bed loading AR-15 magazines, you can clearly see that all the primers are dented, indicating they are expended rounds. This was a close-up shot; it's very obvious. See more »

Yes it's unbelievable but still fun to watch
17 November 2019 | by vovers1See all my reviews

Totally unbelievable story-line and acting are combined with fast-paced action and lots of setup scenes. The act that you can guess what is coming next is probably what keeps you watching. Most of the storytelling is delivered with tongue in cheek humor while people are dying right left and center. The baddies are super smart, the good guys and authorities totally inept except the heroes and the result is Hallmark. Puts the movie in the middle of the line, not great, not bad, interesting use of the power of social media. I've seen a lot worse.
