According to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dino De Laurentiis decided to produce this film because he needed quick cash for his long gestating project Total Recall. At that time, he owned the rights to the film. Despite that, the failure of the film to make adequate money (only $16 million) would eventually resulted in De Laurentiis' bankruptcy and Recall's sale of rights to Carolco. See more »
Towards the end of the movie, Petrovita's car is "heading south on Route 84". Earlier, Kaminski tells Monique to go to the Rock Falls Airport and charter a plane. Route 84 in Illinois runs from Wisconsin to the Quad-Cities. Even assuming he drove all the way to Wisconsin to take that route, it never goes to Rock Falls. See more »
This movie gives you everything you want to see in a true action movie from the Hero at his weakest to his strongest. Typically, action movies aren't awarded Oscars because the character development is poor. Most of the characters die before you really get to know them in some of the films we see. In this film, Arnold accomplishes character development as well as action in the same movie. Although, some of the characters are stereotypical gangsters, his interaction with them helps solidify their presence in the movie. The movie does rank in the same category as Commando but if you love watching his movies, then this one should be a real treat!
