Trivia

John Flynn later recalled:

I really liked working with Bill Forsythe and Jerry Orbach and all those guys in the car who played the killers. But I didn't get along with Steven. He was always about an hour late for work and caused a lot of delays. We shot until October 31, 1990, because an IATSE strike was threatened. (IATSE stands for International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employes, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts. - Ed.) Warner Bros. told us we had to be on a plane by November 1. So we shot for about a month in Brooklyn. The rest of Out for Justice was shot in and around south Los Angeles. We filmed those scenes on Lacy Street, in a slummy area of old wooden buildings that could pass for Brooklyn. See more »

Have criminals ever had it so bad?
19 October 2002 | by (Midlands, England) – See all my reviews

This film is the ultimate violence film. i'm not going to give any specific examples but the fight scenes are so brutal is hilarious. its not like one of those japanese ninja violence films, or evil dead type violence. this is like real-life violence. seagal plays gion fellino, a tough brooklyn cop, who is as the title suggests, out for justice. after the start seagal goes round giving a good hiding to anyone who so much as looks at him funny. the scenes in the butcher shop, the pool hall and the final fight are the best examples of the violence in this film, however they are scattered all over the place. its about 2 minutes into the film before the first person gets a severe decking from seagal. and its fairly brutal. the butcher shop is a good example of seagals martial arts abilities, but more of the fact that gino is a total bad-ass. the pool hall is the macho scene and is a ripper. no-one escapes a good decking. and the final fight is pretty much the harshest beating i've seen in any film. well apart from when like old people get battered but you'll see what i mean if you watch it. make sure to get it on dvd too. its really badly cut on vhs. overall, this film is an all time ripsnorter and probably my favourite seagal film, and in my top ten films of all time.
