The film marked a return to the action movies that were Johnson's bread-and-butter before switching to [[RaceToWitchMountain more family-]][[TheToothFairy friendly fare]].

The film marked a return to the action movies that were Johnson's bread-and-butter before switching to [[RaceToWitchMountain more family-]][[TheToothFairy friendly fare]]. It did not do well at the box office, due to a combination of a sparse plot that kept going on random tangents into Driver's backstory, the "action" consisting of a couple of car chases and Johnson strolling into a building, shooting his target in the head and leaving, and strong box office competition including ''Disney/{{Tangled}},'' ''[[Film/HarryPotter Deathly Hallows Part I]]'', and ''Film/{{Unstoppable}}''.

* AntiVillain: None of the main characters do anything "heroic", but they do have sympathetic qualities. Cop and Driver are Type I's with some Type IV traits, since their actions aren't overly malicious. Killer is a more downplayed case, being closer to a [[PunchClockVillain typical hitman]] than anything. He still tends to [[FairPlayVillain play]] [[NobleDemon by the rules]], though.
