Star Jeff Speakman signed a multi-picture deal at Paramount. One of the two of the two planned movies was a sequel to this film, and another script Paramount optioned about a cop fighting a terrorist. After the Paramount deal fell through, that script went on to Fox and became the 1994 blockbuster "Speed". See more »
When "Jeff" is fighting the gang of thugs in the antique store at the beginning, he knocks the guy through the window (same one he pulled through at the start of the fight). When the guy is shown landing, there is a glimpse of a blue landing mat just outside the window. See more »

Another great, B level action film. Speakman is a great martial artist. He can really rip up a group of Koreans in a club or on their own turf at their gyms. He uses a lot of punches which I like cause after a while guys look pretty silly flipping through the air with gravity defying kicks that level small country sides. It had a few plot twists which is rare for the caliber of movie it was, a deep history that needed resolution and a club scene with exotic Asians. Who could ask for more? Well OK maybe you could, but still this movie is pretty sweet. Especially when they bring in Tanaka, that really big guy that seems to dip his hand in every little karate or bond movie to come around his olfactory senses. The ending was a bit anti-climactic but Ill let you decide that.
