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 »

basic B-movie plot
23 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Frank Wyatt (Emilio Estevez) and Mike Peterson (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) are going out to a boxing match with Ray Cochran (Jeremy Piven) testing out his new RV. Frank's brother John (Stephen Dorff) is a last-minute addition. The foursome from the suburbs get stuck in traffic. They get off the highway and get lost in the bad side of town. They stop after thinking they ran over somebody. They bring Teddy into the RV and discover that he's been shot. A gang led by Fallon (Denis Leary) catches up to the disabled RV. After shooting Teddy, Fallon goes after the four wanting to leave no witnesses.

This is a basic B-movie plot. The main difference interestingly is that Leary leads an all white gang. It could have been much better if Fallon and his men are corrupt cops. It would raise the tension and Fallon can throw his weight around the locals. There is some overacting. It's a fine action B-movie. It isn't quite the same after going down into the sewers. The fake sewer location doesn't have the same intensity. The ladder across the buildings is probably the best section.
