Trivia

According to Variety, Emilio Estevez was far down the list of actors in consideration for the role of Frank Wyatt. The trade paper story explained that the studio's desperation to quickly cast the lead role also led to Estevez taking a much higher-than-expected payday. Actors who passed included Tom Cruise and Christian Slater. See more »

Ripe for a remake
14 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Firstly, no, Im not usually keen to see movies remade, and hate that there is a constant flow of classics being rehashed for no reason. This film is an exception, because, lets face it, you can hardly call it a classic. I always get really surprised when someone else I speak to has actually seen it, or can remember it. Personally, I blooming love it. Not sure why to be honest, the dialogue is pretty clichéd, and the 'good guy' group of mates aren't given any real back story to make you care much about them. All the characters are all paper thin, and let's be honest, I can not for one second buy Emilio Estevez as a tough guy. Crazy ol Billy the kid yeah, but a bad @ss? Not quite. Im not saying that I don't like his performance, because I do. I think that 'because' of it's flaws, this film has stayed with me, and is one of those guilty pleasure movies I always find myself revisiting. However, I think this movie has the real potential to be looked at again. The cat and mouse story is nothing new, but, I really liked the idea of setting the story in a city, where we should feel safe, as opposed to the wilderness, or some abandoned old farm. I like it's tight timeframe, setting the story over one night. I love Denis Leary's 'Fallon' a legitimately chilling bad guy. I would love to see a director with a real visual identity re boot this movie and make use of todays financial melt down in the UK. Set the film in one of London's grimy council estates. I think it would be awesome, if not at all original.
