At the end of the film, when Jacob/Money receives the letter from his son, it's addressed to 'CA Rehabilitation Center' in Norco, California. Indeed, there is a California Rehabilitation Center in Norco; however, it's mainly a rehabilitation center for non-violent, low-level drug addicts--definitely NOT a facility where a hardened, gang-connected, violent criminal would ever be housed.

Bad title, excellent movie
The title is the only thing that's not quite there with this movie - it suggests a sort of b-grade thriller. But what this movie actually delivers is a taut, razor-sharp story about how someone's life can go horribly wrong.
This is the only thing I've seen NCW in apart from Game Of Thrones and I was blown away by his range - he's in full-on acting mode here, entirely believable, and hard as nails.
One of the best movies of 2017.
