    I'm surprised it will not be released before Christmas. Oh well, it's only a week later, I guess I can wait. Thanks for the info guys

    I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. Hope it's as good as I expect it to be.

    Jon B, don't hold your breath. I saw it in the theaters and while it wasn't bad, it wasn't that great. It's a decent popcorn flick. At best, it's Point Break - with cars.

    Did you catch it in the theater?

    I heard a rumor that the story finishes after the credits are done. Is there any truth to the rumor???

    In this case, I would hold my breath. I caught it and consider it a very successful sleeper of a movie, kind of like Vin's Pitch Black (which it appears is similarly polarized). A genre film done right with the right contrast of style and action. Beats the holy hell out of Driven in every single aspect IMO (sound, action, story, casting, effects - especially the practical effects).

    The scene after the credits will be on the DVD. My screener has it. It won't be release before X-mas because they paid MTV millions to advertise it all night long during their New Years Eve party.
