Some scenes were deleted from all VHS and DVD versions. These include additional dream and murder sequences along with an introduction of Durkin's girlfriend, who is credited in every version of the film as character of Robin played by actress Roberta Eaton, even though her scene is only in old TV versions of the movie which reportedly included some of the other deleted scenes. In Eaton's deleted scene her character is angry at Durkin because he wasn't home for a long time, so both of them decide to "catch up". See more »

This is one of those films you see on ITV at 2.20am Thursday morning. Its consigned to forever be overlooked, stepped on and pushed away. But it's also a b-movie of extraordinary magnitude. A mix of horror, action, breasts(Kim Cattral's, not Rutger Hauer's!) and witty one liners. It never seeks to be better than it is, and in doing so is all the better for it.
With a name like Dick Durkin in the credits, you know you're in for a treat. True, the ending crumbles somewhat(kinda like monty python + holy grail i thought), but the rest of the film is low budget gold. The use of London is great, and the supporting characters such as Cattral and Pete Postlethwaite lend some gravitas to the movie also.
Its a fun way to spend a few hours if you dont have the company of a good women.
Any film where a police officer can call a guard dog a 'dickhead' has to worth it's weight in platinum....
Remember....if you're gonna watch it, be sure to get some BIGGER F**KING GUNS!!!!!!!
