Did You Know?
On the left sleeve of Harley's jacket appear the initials "SRV" and under that the roman numerals "MCMLVI-XC". this stands for "Stevie Ray Vaughan 1956-90" (although Vaughan was actually born in 1954).
Boom mic visible:
In the scene where Harley and Marlboro are sitting on a billboard you can see the boom mic and the cameraman hanging over the top of the billboard.
Guns are meant to be shot Harley, not thrown!
A tribute to a dying sort of men
It's the kind of movie they don't make any more.
Packed with testosterone and huge loads of male pride, Harley and Marlboro
set out to kick some ass.
I really love this movie because it shows like friendship between men works
or at least how it is supposed to work. Even though the two main characters
haven't met for years, they know where the other one is and when they come
together again it's like they never were apart.
They also help each other regardless if it will cost their live because in
their mind "It's better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool."
Of course this attitude brings them nothing but trouble but those two take
it the macho-way and stand to whatever comes up.
And for those who only think it's a modern macho western: "Back off!!" Take
a closer look and you will see that there is a lot of soul and spirit
between the macho talking and behaviour.
