Alan Silvestri's first score was rejected. The original score was entirely electronic but the film-makers asked him to beef up action with an orchestral score. Director Stephen Hopkins wanted for score to sound more like the one Silvestri did for Predator 2 (1990), which Hopkins also directed, which is why there's lot of similarities between both scores. The electronic sounds were dropped and a new score was written. Although fans of the movie and composer have expressed their wish to hear full original rejected score, only three tracks from it were released and included as bonus on official release of Silvestri's new score for the film; Judgment Night Theme (originally used in the opening of the film), Frank Takes The Wheel (originally used in the scene where group sees police car and try to chase it), and I Tried (originally used in the scene where group is hiding in the sewer and are waiting for gang members). Theatrical trailer also includes some pieces of rejected score. See more »

This movie was on late one night and I watched it due to the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr., Emilio Esteves and Stephen Dorf was in it. What emerged was a surprisingly good thriller great acting And the plot was quite good. Also Dennis Leary was a standout as the ruthless gangster.
All in all ****1/2 out of *****
