Did You Know?

Trivia

Filmed as a "backdoor pilot" for a potential television series that was never produced. Cynthia Rothrock claimed this was because the movie was made at a time when American television networks were very sensitive about the amount of violence they would broadcast. Reportedly, director Kevin Hooks would receive frequent memos from the studio advising him not to film specific acts of violence, like kicks to the head. See more »

You'd have to be bored
2 December 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Stacy Keach plays about to retire former gung ho cop, Harris Stone, who's just looking to cruise along until retirement day. Somehow or other he ends up with Charlotte Heller as his new sidekick, which he is initially quite happy about. What trouble can she cause? Lots. She's an ex-Navy SEAL (played by real life martial arts champ, Cynthia Rothrock) and she causes plenty of trouble. However, Stacy Keach looks bored and Cynthia Rothrock looks more concerned about showing off her martial arts prowess to let the film rise above the ordinary. Stumbling from one disaster to another, they finally end up confronting a group of terrorists who have taken a hostage in a shopping mall. Where else? If you're bored out of your tree and want to waste an hour and a half of your life then watch it. Rating: 3/10
