Trivia

Sidney J. Furie was the director originally hired for this film. Furie quit when it was alleged that Brolin broke his foot, and the producers suggested Brolin perform the role in a cast. The doctor's reports, however, were erroneous. Many of Furie's previous collaborators, including Rick Natkin, Argyle Nelson and Jay Weston, continued working on the finished product. See more »

Time capsule of sleazy NYC
23 January 2006 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Brolin stars as an ex-cop turned trucker driver who has to track down a psycho extortionist after the guy mistakenly kidnaps Brolin's daughter. Along the way he encounters pimps, prostitutes, crooked cops, youth gangs and, worst of all, his ex-wife. Ouch! Despite the horrible title (exactly what is that supposed to mean?), this is a great little thriller that captures NYC at its sleazy best. There are two great car/foot chases courtesy of stunt coordinator Chris Howell (who even had his preteen son C. Thomas Howell doing stunts on this!). Unfortunately the Media VHS I have is so dark during the last 15 minutes that it is hard to make out exactly what is happening (it is a chase through the sewers). Also featuring Julie Carmen, Dan Hedaya, Mandy Patinkin and porn star Sharon Mitchell (who also appeared in William Lustig's MANIAC).
