Warner Bros. demanded for movie to be heavily cut and re-edited down to 90 minutes long running time in order to be more straightforward and fast paced movie and to have more theatrical screenings. Same type of re-editing also happened to other Seagal movies that he made for Warner Bros. Some scenes were cut while some others, including parts of the plot, were deleted, which is why movie suffers from bad editing in certain parts. Some of the scenes which were deleted during re-editing are; Original opening scene between Storm and his wife and son, Trent's men interrogate and kill Andy's black nurse friend, longer deleted part of the movie where Storm's son Sonny is kidnapped by Trent's men but manages to escape, O'Malley's funeral scene, and more dialogue between characters in many other scenes. Reportedly, alternate ending was also filmed where Storm kills Trent and says "Take that to the bank". Storm is shown saying this line in theatrical trailer, which indicates that there indeed was alternate ending where Trent dies. See more »

Lt. Kevin O'Malley:
Let me tell you something, Sonny... one day when this is all over, you, me, and your pop are going to rent us a fishing boat, and catch us the biggest fish that ever swam the seas. And I'm not talking goldfish, either.
The last time I went fishing with Pop, we caught an old tire.
Lt. Kevin O'Malley:
Not this time, Sonny. We're going to get us a big fat tuna.

Hard to kill? He's impossible to kill! Yes thousands of bullets fly about but not one so much as ruffles Mr Segal's hair. (Mind you with all the gel I'm not surprised.) On the other hand his many assailants are all too easy to kill. As the years go by it gets harder to see why Segal was once a hot box office property. His acting is non-existent, every line, be it a quip or a pledge, is delivered in a flat, inflection free monotone. His martial arts skills are no more exceptional than many other screen heroes. His ego is simply enormous The ultra-serious tone of his films, no matter how inane the plots only make them more ridiculous. Kelly Le Brock actually manages to match his woodeness, rendering their scenes together excruciating. The right-wing morals of the film are somewhat basic too. Never more so than the scene where Segal snaps a man's neck in front of his son, only for the kid to run up and give his dad a big hug as if he had just been given a Christmas present. And these are supposed to be the nice guys?
