Random questions that popped into my mind during viewing: “What’s with this seemingly unrelated car chase in the middle of the story?” (There’s a foot chase at the end, so the car sequence wasn’t needed, in my opinion.) “Does the Leon short even have a chase?” (I’m sure some will argue about semantics, but for me a firefight is not a chase.) “Why is Brian Dennehy such an asshole?” “Why can’t Phil tell the difference between a gopher and a groundhog?” (Okay, those last two didn’t bother me so much. :) )
I’ll admit. I never saw the original. I’ll also echo Uncanny Antman’s wondering why the car chase needed to be included. It was really confusing, and I would have preferred if a shorter edit was made, that was a little more clear cut in present the kidnapping, torture, and escape of this poor poor guy. Still, I liked parts of it, and it was certainly a good chase to present.
