Trivia

On the left sleeve of Harley's jacket appear the initials "SRV" and under that the roman numerals "MCMLVI-XC". this stands for "Stevie Ray Vaughan 1956-90" (although Vaughan was actually born in 1954). See more »

Goofs

The Ruger Super Blackhawk .454 can deliver a 250 grain (16 g) bullet with a muzzle velocity of over 1900 feet per second (580 m/s), developing more than 2000 ft·lbf (2.7 KJ) of energy. Marlboro Man's shoulder that Harley shot him in would have been blown clean off (to paraphrase Inspector Callahan), not leave him going, "You shot me!" See more »

Quotes

Harley Davidson: [after wishing Marlboro "Happy Birthday"] How does it feel to be an old man?
Marlboro: The older the bull, the stiffer the horn.

Guilty? Sort of. A pleasure? Indubitably!
21 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is my ultimate guilty pleasure. All my critical faculties tell me it's a trashy action flick with no particular value. But critical faculties don't mean a thing when chemistry is as kinetic as that between Rourke and Johnson, who for my money have Newman and Redford beat by a mile in one of the best "buddy" teamings ever. Moreover, the movie is beautifully cast down the line and the pace is always great. Everything from the costuming of the lead characters to the atmosphere in the bar to the performances by Tom Sizemore and Daniel Baldwin are right on target. But mainly it's Johnson and Rourke's connection that makes the movie. They're terrific. I've seen this movie several times and it never loses me for an instant. Yeah!
