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 Steven 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 »

Looking for a no-brainer that is fun to watch, the standard-but-effective revenge film? Well, this is it.
As usual, everything is played to the hilt, meaning the bad guys couldn't be much worse. They not only kill hero Steven Seagal's wife and kid but are crude and use profanity in every sentence. They are the low-life scums in every sense of the word. The only problem is one of them is a U.S. Senator and nobody - nobody - this crude would ever be in high-class position like that....only in Hollywood where, since the '60s, authority figures are almost always shown to be the enemy.
Segal's real-life wife, Kelly LeBrock, plays a nurse in here, nursing her Buddhist he-man back to health after the thugs had left him for dead in the aforementioned family killing. The rest is simply Segal's road to recovery and for revenge against those punks...but it's an interesting road, enough to fill the bill if you're in a revenge-seeking mood
