The film had a troubled production. When director William Lustig's rough cut came in at only 51 minutes, he refused to shoot the additional scenes the producers wanted and quit the project; the balance of the picture was directed by co-producer Joel Soisson. Prior to Blue Underground's DVD and Blu-ray release of the movie in 2013, Lustig was the film's credited director. However, the Blue Underground version is credited to the Director's Guild of America pseudonym Alan Smithee. See more »
In the scene where Det. McKinney and Dr Fowler are reviewing the unedited video of the shooting involving Officer Sullivan, the dialogue from Officer Sullivan is not consistent with the dialogue from the original shooting scene from earlier in the movie. See more »
Det. Sean McKinney:
I can't imagine the kind of pain you feel Matt. I'm not gonna pretend to. But don't condemn her to the same fate. She deserves better. You cleared her. She's at peace. Let her go, Matt. Let her go.

I am at a distinct disadvantage here. I have not seen the first two movies in this series, although I have seen a lot of Larry Cohen films. Fans of the series seem to think this is a good film. Judging it on it's own, it was pretty boring.
You never get a real good look at the maniac cop's (Robert Z'Dar) face, but what I did see was pretty grim. The death scenes seem to be staged to eat up the most film, not to give any thrills. Maybe if I saw the NC-17 Director's Cut, I may be more impressed.
The ending with the car chase with Z'Dar, Caitlin Dulany, and Robert Davi was pretty intense. best part of the movie.
