Goofs

  • At 30:38 when Officer Penny breaks the driver's side window on the suspect's car, the window breaks like regular old plate glass. Car side windows use tempered glass, so when broken they don't create large jagged sharp pieces which can easily cut and injure occupants/pedestrians, but rather they break up into thousands of tiny cubes and are far less likely to cause serious cuts and abrasions. Tempered glass is also a lot harder than plate glass.

It’s amiable, but the real action thrills and the chemistry between the leads isn’t there.

The tone veers haphazardly from tense, high-stakes cat-and-mouse chase to ill-judged satire.

Fortunately, the new actioner directed by the prolific Steven C. Miller (First Kill, Arsenal, Marauders) proves fast-paced enough to overcome its more ludicrous plot elements.
