R | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
A police detective, a bank robber, and a high-power broker enter high-stakes negotiations after the criminal's brilliant heist spirals into a hostage situation.
The ground scenes for the bank were filmed inside a real bank, whereas the underground scenes of the bank were filmed on a movie set in Brooklyn, New York.
My name is Dalton Russell. Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and I never repeat myself. I've told you my name: that's the Who. The Where could most readily be described as a prison cell. But there's a vast ...
The van used by the bank robbers is a Chevrolet Express which utilizes daytime running lamps which cannot be turned off. The lamps are illuminated when Dalton first drives off in the van and again at the bank. However, when the van is driving over the Brooklyn Bridge, the lamps are no longer illuminated.
At the beginning of the opening, instead of the regular "A Film by...." the title reads "A Spike Lee Joint"
