Trivia

Holds a record for the most expensive German movie screenplay. During development, producers demanded constant rewrites from the original authors - who had to be paid for every single draft. Then, after the production had already spent around 250.000 Euro on the script, it was finally rejected and writer Timo Berndt started from scratch to write the script that ended up being used.

Goofs

Eva Habermann has through the whole movie some cream boots except in the scenes where she sprang out of the helicopter on the roof of the building. There she had some terrain flat shoes in same color. See more »

Pure action
10 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I like to agree with Markus Schnitzler , it's a rock-solid action movie, made to watch just for fun, not to consider the worlds biggest problems ! The stunts are incredible, cars and motorcycles of course, but helicopters, and not only one, they crash 2 and just an airplane too.

And I like the split-screens too, they look good and they can give you a lot of information in a short time and the story rolls on.

Of course the story is not the best , I've ever seen, but it is so far OK, cause you don't go there to ask for logic and depth, right ?

If you like fast and breathless action, here you can get it ! It is certainly worth a try :-)
