Storyline

Chicago DEA agent John Hatcher has just returned from Colombia, where his partner was killed in the line of duty by a drug dealer who has since been taken down. As a result of his partner's death, John has decided to retire, but his retirement may not be permanent. On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy. After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire. Written by Todd Baldridge <sandib@eastky.com>

Trivia

The back cover of the DVD release features a screen capture from the James Bond movie Licence to Kill (1989), featuring a semi performing a wheelie through the burning remains of a second semi. Obviously this scene is not in the movie, and it is made even more odd by the fact that this movie is a 20th Century Fox release while Licence to Kill is an MGM release. See more »

Goofs

After Hatcher beheads Screwface, several crew members' hands are clearly seen at the screen's bottom holding onto Screwface's dummy body with poles as it lowers to the ground. See more »

Quotes

Screwface: Everybody want go heaven. Nobody want dead. Afraid.

Seagal delivers
13 May 2005 | by (Bergen, Norway) – See all my reviews

Of Stevens Seagal's movies, this is clearly one of the better. It's from 1990, and that was around his prime time as a action star. ("Under Siege" came two years later). There are a couple of really cool fights in this movie where Seagal handles lots of bad guys without any effort at all. The last part of the movie, where he's invading the Jamaica-man bad guy's base is especially entertaining. In this movie, he has one of the best comments of all his films:"One thought he was immortal, and the other one thought he could fly. Both were wrong". Watch the movie to find out what I'm talking about. You won't regret it if you like easy action.
