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 »

Total "on the edge of your seat action!"
2 June 2003 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

If you like non stop action and wide excitement, then this movie is for you! You will NOT be leaving your seat to get popcorn! James Brolin does some of his best acting in this movie. Your heart will be ripped from your chest each and every time he gets so close, and fails! This is a sleeper movie. It just didn't get any press.
