Also in Metro Insurgentes and within the pedestrial explanade of the Insurgentes roundabout, note the "Peñafiel" billboard behind Michael Ironside at 1:41

Just the one I remember every time I pass through those points. At the beginning of the film he enters the Infonavit building, also goes around the Army University... I do prefer True Lies.

On Denzel Washington "Man on Fire", I was taking my parents to a stroll through Uruguay Street on the corner with Venustiano Carranza in Downtown when the truck with the rig carrying the front of the car Denzel was supposedly driving and a bunch of cameras. There is a very small possibility I appear at a single frame there. I also remember that film every time I pass through Vizcainas street.

In "Vantage Point" I recognize most of the highway scenes were filmed near San Lázaro TAPO Bus Station, and bits on Tolsá Square.

In "The Air I Breathe" everything is filmed in Polanco, Santa Fé and surrounding areas. Is one of the few Hollywood films of this century that don't use the Sepia filter to film in Mexico...

In "The Day After Tomorrow" there is an overflight take of the US Embassy in Mexico City that they use as the Emergency Alternate US Government Offices...

I like to recognize familiar spots in Hollywood movies and see how they are used...
