Was fun when they got on MS One, I think the bike chase CGI was beyond bad and should never have been released.

I have the US Sony release. Good looking disc, but yeah, that bike chase CGI was laughable.

Aside from that, good cheese.

Incidentally, it only has the following features:

Made crap money. Would have earned the same amount if it had been rated R and it wouldn't have sucked as bad. Had this movie been made at any time prior to 2006 it would have been an R rated film.

It's a bit of a joke, because in its 'Unrated For Marketing Purposes' form, it's an ant's ass-hair away from being PG-13 any way.

There's very little actual blood ever seen on screen and aside from one stylised gunshot wound, there's nothing I can vaguely remember as being gratuitously violent or bloody. It either cuts away quick, or the violence happens off screen.

I watched it again, with my brother-in-law earlier and we came away with the same things:

1. Terrible CGI chase sequence..
2. Some very witty and funny dialogue, with a nice streak of dark humour throughout.
3. Guy Pearce should do more action movies.
4. Maggie Grace is hotter as a brunette.

An ultra violent action movie without any of the ultra violence. It's pathetic.

Escape from NY on a space station. It was okay at best, but could have been SO much better.

Just watched it wasn't too bad for a rental but do agree with the CGI chase sequence was rubbish. Has no replay value for me at all.
