Screenwriter J.F. Lawton, who wrote the original script, which was titled "Dreadnought", wrote another script in 1995 titled "High Roller". Described as "Die Hard in a casino", the script was about a mobster and his men, who take over a casino in Las Vegas, and kidnap the owner, and the mobster's ex-hitman has to join up with the casino owner's daughter, and a down-on-his-luck gambler to save him, and stop the mobsters. The script was sold to Savoy Pictures for one million dollars, and they were working on turning it into a film starring Sylvester Stallone, but they disagreed with his twenty million dollar contract to star in the film, so the entire project was cancelled and once Savoy Pictures went bankrupt, the script was never picked up again.

This movie is definately Steven Seagal's best movie. This movie is definately worth a look. The supporing cast like Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey make very good villans. Jones did a great job as the half insane mercinary who's in on a plot of hijacking a U.S. Battleship. There are a lot of actors in this one who would appear in director Andrew Davis's next film "The Fugitive" The action in this movie is great. I think this movie also contains some good cinematography by Frank Tidy. This is not a movie you can take seriously. You have to use your imagination and know it's not real but pretend it is. *** out of ****
