When Mike is completing his street art under the bridge, the picture is of the "Little Monster" logo. Little Monster was one of the production companies for the movie. See more »


The white van they used to mount a rescue on Magnes, is a Right-Hand drive van. Perfect for Australia where this movie was filmed. But since the events in this movie is supposed to take place in the US, this should have been a Left-Hand drive van.

Would rate lower, but my 6 year old loved it.

Wanted to post this review to highlight the blatant rip off from A Few Good Men (Tommy Cruise and Jack Nicholson).

When confronted towards the end of this film, the military man goes on a rant that is almost identical to Jack's character Colonel Jessup in A Few Good Men. It is the cheesiest take off you can imagine.

Anyways, overall this film is so poorly acted, but for whatever reason, it hits the mark for my 6 year old son.

If your IQ is over 100, perhaps skip this one.

Or watch it just for the scene I mentioned above, truly hilarious!
