In one scene, the headlight of Proton Satria Neo was spotted to the right of Chris Hemsworth.
Satria Neo is a cult-classic among some Malaysians, for it’s sporty look and Lotus Engineering handling. It was rumored that even the Sultan of Johor owns at least one.
The car appears in the film multiple times, especially in a long action shooting scenes on a bridge and in a town.

Last but not least, an unexpected Savvy also made an appearance alongside Chris Hemsworth.
The film has received mixed-reviews from international critics, with the heaviest critics coming from Bangladesh for the film’s negative portraying of the country’s law enforcement and military.
It also received critics for using ‘yellow filter’, a way Hollywood filmmakers use to portray a third world country or sometimes hot-climate country.
