Trivia

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 »

Goofs

During the gunfight in the house Det. Sgt. Goodhart's rifle jams. In the next scene Mason shoots Det. Sgt. Goodhart. The person being shot is pictured in full frame in the following scene and is obviously the stunt double and not the actor portraying Det. Sgt. Goodhart. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Dan Hulland: [to a detective] You know how they said Storm was superhuman. You know why? He was jacked up on coke the whole time.
[O'Malley overhears Hulland, and angrily confronts him]
Lt. Kevin O'Malley: Let me tell you something. That was the cleanest man I ever knew. He had more honor and guts than this whole department put together. If I ever hear you talk that puke again, I'll lose my shield to put you where you belong.

Steven Seagal is hard to kill
19 December 1999 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Once again, Steven Seagal plays a cop, and this could have been the sequel to Above The Law(his first film). Steven Seagal is Mason Storm, and is gunned down with his family in 1984, after having taped a famous person discussing murder. However, Mason doesn`t die that easily, and he wakes up from his coma 6 years later. He escapes from the hospital, falls in love with his nurse, and begins hunting down the people who killed his family. The storyline in this movie is pretty basic Seagal-stuff: brotherhood, revenge etc. Overall a very entertaining movie, and the fight scenes are well fought by martial-art master Steven Seagal. 8/10
