Trivia

When Edele enters the security code at the front door of the apartment, the sound of the numbers pressed results in the first few bars of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". See more »

Goofs

When Dez talks to the girl in the "play room" scene, a close-up of her is shown on the TV screen. Then the camera operator starts moving backwards and the camera that feeds the TV screen zooms out too quickly so that the film camera (presumably a Steadicam system) has not yet left the viewing angle of the TV camera and can clearly be seen on the left side of the TV for a moment.

Loved this movie
7 March 2006 | by sylore-1See all my reviews

This movie is probably one of the best I've seen in a long while. The action scenes were in your face and looked pretty damn realistic. The special effects were freaking awesome and the director did some really cool stuff which will blow you away. The acting was very believable and the plot worked very well. It reminded me of Training Day the way the story unfolded while we went along for the ride. The plot is freaking awesome and I can't wait to get the DVD. An AWESOME movie!! Definitely must watch this again. The thing to remember when you watch this movie is that it's a ride just sit and enjoy it. I've never felt a need to promote a movie but this one is too good to let others miss it. It is painful to watch in some scenes and at times you're actually totally disgusted once you figure out what's going on. It's crazy the emotions that this movie brings out.
