Principal photography for the film began on September 23, 2009 in New York City, with additional scenes filmed in Albany, New York.

Detectives Danson (Dwayne Johnson) and Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson) are pursuing a group of criminals in a Cadillac Escalade. After a brief firefight that results in the hood of Highsmith’s Chevy Chevelle getting blown into the windshield, the two inadvertently crash into the side of a double decker bus.

Danson drives it after the criminals and meticulously slingshots the trapped car out the other side of the bus (with Highsmith firing the whole time) and crashing into the Trump Tower, inexplicably surviving. The criminals manage to get away, until police backup quickly arrives and arrests them.
