I'm not suggesting that Toorop is Dominic, although there is an idea that "movie stars" tend to "play themselves" in every role (Jared Harris contrasted this with "chameleon" actors who make every role distinct, Gary Oldman & Tom Hardy as examples.)
Here's what I mean:
- In Babylon A.D. (2008) Toorop states that all a mercenary has is his balls and his word. Toorop has given his word to deliver Aurora.
- During the arctic crossing, Aurora states that they have become family via their shared struggles.
- In NYC, Toorop & Aurora make sweet love, and she subsequently reveals she is pregnant and Toorop is the father.
- Toorop breaks his word, and does not deliver Aurora.
It's been established that Toretto's personal code comes down to one thing: Family. Under the sometimes complicated system of warrior codes, there can be conflicting loyalties. In this case, Toorop breaks his word, destroying his honor as a mercenary, because he has a higher loyalty he must serve: family.
- Did the Babylon A.D. film change the story to make Aurora's fetuses Toorop's, or was this in the book?
If this was not a factor in the books, where Vin was surely the person with the most power on that film, being the element that guaranteed box office and generates pre-sales of the distribution rights, did Vin influence the script to reflect his most successful franchise?
If so, can Dominic Torreto's personal code be said to have been a factor in the plot of the Babylon A.D. (2008) film?
