Various changes were made to secure a PG-13 rating (for example, the head through the car window; the re-dubbed line, "You were always a punk"). These changes exist in every released version of the film. See more »
This should have been much much better. Is it too much to ask for a brainless action flick that actually entertains! There is too much CGI which ruins the action scenes, the screenplay is clichéd, and the characters mostly annoying. Ice Cube seems embarrassed by some of the dialog he has to utter. This would have been better off as a tongue-in-cheek campy thriller. Sadly, the writers expect us to take what's spoken seriously. Martin Henderson looks lost most of the time. Some outrageously inserted product placement further adds to viewer misery. Avoidable.
