Steven Seagal did not get along with Bruce Malmuth and considered him to be a very poor director, stating in a 1990 interview "I think it's a miracle that this guy can put one foot in front of the other." Chief among Seagal's complaints included dissatisfaction with filming the action scenes and being excluded from the editing process. See more »

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.

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
