Ivan Danko uses a gun called "Podbyrin 9.2 mm". Its actually a modified western Desert Eagle Magnum. The Podbyrin does not exist. Its a made up prop for the movie. See more »

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
