Did You Know?

Trivia

Reportedly, one of the extras, Austin Martin, was commended by several of the main cast, including Jamie Foxx, for his very realistic looking beard. The actors believed it to be skillful work by the costume department, when, in reality, it was entirely natural. See more »

Goofs

During the first FBI briefing that occurs immediately after the attack, Grant's character states the bomb looks like a plane dropped a 500 pounder. However a 500 pounder is specifically used to engage small targets such as cars or trucks and would never leave a massive effect as observed in the movie. See more »

Much more that a shoot-em'-up, but not for the faint of heart
30 September 2007 | by scottgoblue314See all my reviews

I went into this movie hoping it wouldn't be a cheap shot at either the US Government or the people in the Middle East and I wasn't disappointed. The introduction that outlines the history between Saudi Arabia and the United States alone proves as much: no matter how intense that action was (and it was very much so), the movie itself was a fairly level-headed look at the current situation. You are drawn into the action from the very beginning, but from there it does not sink into an FBI team shooting up Saudis. There is actually an INVESTIGATION, with political interests in the background all the while. An excellent action movie with more than a little thought put into it, but not for the faint of heart.
