Art asks Ivan what Viktor did to piss of the Russian government by saying "What did he do, piss on the Kremlin wall or something? " This is most likely a reference to Ozzy Osbourne pissing on the Alamo which occurred roughly 6 years prior to this film's release. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, when Arnold jumps out of the sauna window with one of the Villains you can clearly see a stunt doubler instead of Arnold. See more »

Hey, you, come here. This is Captain Danko. He's come all the way from Russia to speak with your scoutmaster.
Well, that's nice, but who the fuck are you?

In the opening credits certain letters are reversed so as to imitate Russian Cyrillic script. In particular, "Rs" and "Ns" are reversed. See more »
Walter Hill knows how to direct action movies, and he does'nt let up with this solid thriller. Arnie and Jim Belushi take on a Russian drug dealer(Ed O'Ross) who is now working with some "gangtas" in Chicago. The shootout's are good and the ending bus chase is cool and theres some good dialogue. The only problem is Arnie's character is too much like the Terminator and there are no one-liners like in his other films. But besides that, this is a solid action movie and I recommend it highly. 4/5
