otsoNY Comments: Although this movie was based in New York City, most of the filming was done in Toronto, Canada. Only 2 weeks of filming were done in Manhattan. The most elaborate sequence staged by the production was the climactic bus chase, in which Bruce Willis' character Jack Mosley commandeers a New York City transit bus loaded with passengers in a desperate attempt to make it the final few blocks to the courthouse. A SWAT team surrounds the bus and shoots out the tires, sending the 30-ton vehicle plowing into a construction site. This entire sequence was filmed principally in Toronto over the course of 12 days with 46 stunt people and 25 vehicles, including five MTA buses purchased and shipped from New York to Toronto.
