Jazz musician John Zorn originally scored the entire film, complete with multiple cues and even scored both the original and alternate endings. As with many other films, Walter Hill was unhappy with the end result and hired old pal Ry Cooder to rescore the whole film. See more »

I have only ever seen this film at about 2-00 in the morning on late night T.V. but what a great show it was. Good action and adventure and a decent enough story for a low budget action flick. This was yet another average selling Bill Paxton film that was really good. For an actor that was outside the a-list, nearly every film he made was worth the watching and this is no exception. Definitely worth watching on T.V. although I don't know if it is the sort of film that you would pay to buy a copy of but if you come home after a night out and are looking for a film to watch to keep you going through the night, you could do worse than watch this.
