Production staff used a bicycle to travel between filming locations in downtown Hopewell. After filming was completed, the bicycle was autographed by production staff and Daniel Radcliffe, and was donated to the City of Hopewell. The bicycle sold at auction for more than $2,000, with all proceeds benefiting the Hopewell United Way campaign. See more »
As Nate Foster is first driving into the new Virginia compound he clearly turns the wheel of his truck using the "feed the wheel" method taught to and used by British drivers rather than the "hand over hand" method taught to and used by American drivers... thus revealing that Daniel Radcliffe is actually British versus American like his character.

The good, the Bad and the Ugly sides of the FBI force!
The post Harry Potter series, apart from awesome in 'Horns', Daniel Radcliffe struggled to find his character, where he fits in. I mean he tried many different ones, but I think in this he was so good. Initially I thought 'whaaaat?' Because with his physique, he did not qualify to play an FBI agent. He was like when the Captain America first came to the army recruitment. And then when the story progressed, I realised the character was designed that way. So I found it kind of fun, though the topic it was dealing, especially knowing it was inspired by the real, this is definitely an eye opener.
The first 5 minutes reveals the film's whole plot. Though the opening was the end part of some undercover operation taken by the FBI. It does not show us how it all had happened, but with a new mission, another similar kind of event follows which is what this film.
Some people call it a propaganda, but I think it was a good message film for the common people. For how misused the homeland security force. I mean they were doing their jobs, but for achieving big within the force, they take the risks which unfortunately transforms the barking dogs into the biting ones.
So basically the infiltration means, they are the one to encourage those bad guys to act, in order to get them red handed. If it was for a good cause like if they nab the real culprit, then it's okay, but the innocents should not be turned into evil and punished. Like there are no bad guys, but they make one and take into the custody. If you watch it and think about it, you would relaise what I meant.
It was a better film than I anticipated, and the performance by Daniel Radcliffe was the highlight of the film. Some newcomer directed it and decently done his job. Not a must see, but surely I force you to watch it to learn the good, the bad and the ugly sides of the FBI force.
