Revealing mistake: During the flashback scene where Max is describing the night of the kidnapping, the rainfall at the marina is obviously fake. The "rain" is being blown at an odd angle from an off-camera fan, and the surface of the water is practically still with no raindrops. (00:40:50)
Max and Elise (the girl) are behind her own "kidnapping;" they set Avery up to think he was selling her out to pay a debt. When Charlie pays the ransom, they split the money with the thugs and disappear. Charlie and Lono find out, kill the thugs, track Max and Elise down to a resort, and kill them both for "lying to their friends."
Charlie Barret: I'm going to give you an opportunity: get out of this. Now. Before it gets so fucked up nobody could ever recover.
Question: Much ado is made near the start of the film about the kidnappers sending Elise's finger back to her family as a threat, but we learn later that she was never harmed. Did the film ever explain where the finger actually came from, or if it was even sent at all?
