Trivia
Director Chuck Russell wanted to incorporate a physical feat into the movie which only The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) could perform. That is why there is a scene where the Rock springs to his feet from a position where he is lying on his back. Russell said that he had never seen a 6'3" man do that.
