Due to the behind-the-scenes arguments, and production problems, Warner Bros. brought in Stuart Baird to heavily re-edit the movie. For the same reasons, Baird also re-edited Tango & Cash (1989), another Warner Bros. movie which had even more problems during filming and post-production. Some alternate scenes can be seen in the theatrical trailer; an alternate angle for a dialogue scene between Joe and Jimmy in the car, when they are driving towards Joe's house, and an alternate angle for another dialogue scene during the car chase, where both of them and Darian are running from Milo and his henchmen.

When Joe pulls his gun on the kids trying to steal his watch the hammer is cocked. When he pulls it back into the window of the car, the hammer is down in an un-cocked position. See more »

they don't make action movies like this anymore...
In the early 90's, there was a definite, consistent presence in action movies: slow motion cinematography, wild gun-play, and funny one-liners. Granted, there are still some of those today (2004), but it just wasn't the same as back in the day. Now there are so many special effects in the current action films that it drowns out what used to be the great style of a "popcorn flick".
Die Hard paved the way for these type of movies, and some of the offspring of this did well and did not. The Last Boyscout was one that did well. This was a very intelligent and fun action/thriller/buddy-comedy that can still be enjoyed to this day. Tony Scott is the master of under-appreciated action movies in the 90's, such as this and True Romance.
My suggestion is to get a 6-pack, go rent this movie, sit back and enjoy the ride.
