Coming together to solve a series of murders in New York City are a police detective whose family was slain as part of a conspiracy and an assassin out to avenge her sister's death. The duo will be hunted by the police, the mob, and a ruthless corporation.
Very little of the movie was actually shot on greenscreen. Instead, Director John Moore opted to shoot in Toronto during the night, in order to add extra reality to his actors' reactions.
I don't believe in heaven. I believe in pain. I believe in fear. I believe in death.
The snowstorm is clearly staged, based on a shot of moths buzzing around a street light, which of course wouldn't be happening in the middle of winter.
After the credits is an extra scene, in which Max is reunited with Mona at a bar to be shown further developments involving Aesir, implying both have more to do (setting the scene for a possible sequel).
An unrated version was released on Region 1 DVD and Region A Blu-Ray.
