The dilapidated buildings featured in the movie are actually the then vacant Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill buildings in Atlanta, Georgia. Although looking on the verge of falling down in the movie they have since been refurbished into luxury apartments in real life. See more »

This is a film independent film makers should take a look at if action films are of any interest to them. Not for the seen-it-all, heard-it-all plot and profane dialogue, but for Walter Hill's staging and execution of the action. The film has a terrific pace to it and the camera always shows an interesting angle. The locations are at a minimum, very cost efficient and capably creating a claustrophobic atmosphere. Very well done. Good, moody music score, again, by the great Ry Cooder.
