Most of the bloody gunshot wounds were done with squibs, with a handful of CGI one also added. In the commentary, Wayne Kramer mentions that Bruce Altman was terrified of the squibs because he's never been strapped to them before. See more »
During the opening shootout, the Jamaican with the machete lunges at Rydell and swings his machete towards him. In the next slow-motion shotgun shot, the man's arm is still behind him (showing that he hasn't swung yet). See more »

This movie was non-stop. It was full of action. It was intense, and at times surprising. I can see Paul Walker is trying to shed his pretty boy image. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It reminded me of a cross between Pulp Fiction and A history of violence with a twist. There were some moments that down right shocked me. This movie is not for anyone under the age of 17. And if this is your first date with someone...this is not the right choice...it could lead to some awkwardness. The acting was good. I wonder if the studios are gearing Paul Walker for something more. He just might be our next Matthew McConaughey. If you like gritty movies...than you are gonna enjoy this.
