The hockey game scene was filmed at the first (and at the time only) Ice facility in Columbia, South Carolina. The hockey players seen in the film are (or were) members of hockey programs throughout the area. Scenes in which you cannot see actor Stuart Lafferty's face but his character, Brendan Hume, is present, local hockey player Sam Waller was used as a body double; Waller was uncredited. Some of the extras that were seen during hockey action sequence were the same that can be seen in an earlier scene (on the unrated version on DVD), when Kelly Preston (Helen Hume) and Jordan Garrett (Lucas Hume) are discussing an in class conflict, the camera shows Brendan Hume hanging out at school with his teammates. Once again a few of the same hockey players can been seen once again during the scene of Brendan's Funeral. See more »

This is one of the worst films I know of. It came up on TV last night and me and my girlfriend sat through in dumbfounded amazement. We actually put off the Kusturica we were going to see, so trasfixed and entertained were we. The count of inept filmmaking:
drab, ugly aesthetic in the name of 'stark realism', yet applied to
the most cartoonish fictional universe since the Death Wish sequels.
Laughable cutouts of 'street punks' make up the disposable fodder of utter, contemptuous evil. They strike poses of meanness, and exclusively populate seedy areas lit like a set-piece from a glossy horror movie.
crushingly cheap symbolism. The setting for the final, furious
vengeance is across 'Stygian street'. Crosses abound, in all the wrong places. A protagonist who, as usual in these revenge films, becomes what he despised - we see him drive the muscle car, the new haircut that makes him look like one of them. In the penultimate scene, his opponent actually tells him 'you're one of us'! How condescending to any audience that paid even the smallest attention.
now and then, a snappy montage or song in the soundtrack will
obviously punctuate the emotional momentum. Further retreat from the flimsy facsimile of 'realism' into the shallowness of music video.
Null and void stuff, purporting some important insight into the human condition. Watch, instead, Dead Man's Shoes with Paddy Considine if you're in the mood for this kind of thing; it's not great but at least it's by the hand of an actual filmmaker.
