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 »

A two hour thrill ride that doesn't relent for a minute.
This was an extremely graphically violent film with some gratuitous nudity. A lot of extremely well played roles. characters were simple with complex backgrounds. It kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire film wondering what was next. I left feeling like I had just had a two hour seizure. Every time you thought you had it figured out it threw a curve at you. From beginning to end it was fabulous and realistic. Paul Walker gave an excellent performance and you really got into his skin. The supporting cast was excellent, development of the characters rolled out in a believable manner with out a bunch of unnecessary revelations. I will buy this movie when it comes out on DVD. If you enjoyed Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction you will probably really enjoy this film.
