Trivia

Some of the background music during the chase seen immediately following the escape from the box car is very similar to the score in Predator (1987). Both films had the music composed by Alan Silvestri. Director Stephen Hopkins also directed Predator 2 (1990) and he wanted for score to sound like the one Silvestri composed for that film, which is why he rejected Silvestri's original electronic score.

"That money got blood on it, man!"
28 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1993 film where four old buddies in Chicago rent a lavish motor home for a night of partying and watching boxing. After they witness a murder by Fallon, a sinister drug lord very well-played by Denis Leary, a long, tense, violent urban odyssey follows.

Though somewhat dated by its 20 years, JUDGMENT NIGHT is everything a thriller-seeker desires. The simple but focused plot follows the old formula, and it's fairly easy to predict the basics of how it will turn out, but it has plenty of small surprises along the way, and there's nothing too unbelievable. The four friends--one who turns out to be the big hero, one who keeps mucking everything up for everybody else, and two who are kind of in the middle--are a rather cookie-cutter set, but good acting and even better filming keep this film alive.

Interesting to see the young Stephen Dorff in an atypical role as the younger brother of the hero played by Emilio Estevez.
