To create believable characters and true life story, screenwriter Richard Wenk days and nights spent in police custody in New York.

"In our conversations with detectives constantly emerging theme of a certain limit, the traits that have each of them, and they never cross. Nobody can say where it is, but when you come to it, you can not go any further. And you can break. " Directed by Donner adds: "So in the life of any one of us - if you stepped over themselves, to change yourself, your life changes radically.

Detective Jack Mosley stepped over that line 6 years ago when I worked in tandem with Frank Nugent and a group of police officers, who believed that the end justifies the means. And if in achieving this noble goal has sometimes overstep the law - it does not matter, as long as the offender was captured.

"I've always been a fan of Richard Donner and wanted to work with him. Especially on such a great script, some written by Richard Wenk. It is impossible to say for sure who is good and who bad, because it shows the perspective of each. All the lines flow into one another. This, coupled with the fact that events unfold in real time, gives the viewer a sense of complicity in what's happening. In my opinion, it's great invented. "

"If you read his poems - he is a poet, prophet and philosopher. His words are a lot of genuine pain and at the same time they have and that naivete, which unites him with his character of Eddie. He made his character a surprisingly big, bright and original. "
