After the trailer debuted, Erik Estrada, star of CHiPs (1977), the TV series on which this movie is based, retweeted a post on Twitter that blasted it as "pure trash". The Tweet was critical of the use of gunplay in the trailer, and also called the film "demeaning" to fans of the original show.
Interestingly, the characters in the trailer and presumably the movie proper are carrying guns and will fire them. Contrast to the show where they carried guns but never fired them once during the run of the show.
Jason Ellis is one of the stunt men in the movie who gets punched by Dax. The two were talking and joking about it on the Jason Ellis show. Ellis stated he would be very upset if he waited around for hours only to have Dax pull his punches.
