Movie was filmed in nine weeks between April 20th and June 18th of 1992, but it wasn't released until February 4th of 1994, more than a year and a half after it was finished. Besides releasing all the later DVD versions of the movie in cropped 1.33:1 pan and scan format instead of 2.35:1 widescreen one in which the movie was originally filmed, Miramax and Dimension Films also went and cut it down by around five minutes before it was released theatrically only in 800 screens. The film was originally much harder, and featured greater violence and language, and most of the cuts were made on those scenes because studios wanted to make it safer and more appealing to the general movie going audience. Uncut version of the film was never released. See more »
(at around 29 mins) After Dani and Cole jump off of the cliff and are washed down the river, Cole complains that Dani lost his "Pearl handled 9mm" gun. The gun that he had was not pearl handled, and was a WW2 model Colt 1911 which is a .45 ACP weapon. See more »
GUNMEN is a brilliant action movie, and of course very funny. Once again, the great Mr. Denis Leary shows he has the chops to be a great screen villain. As with JUDGMENT NIGHT, he excels as a wonderfully nasty bad guy.
As for our leads, Mario Van Peebles and Christopher Lambert work brilliantly together as they joke and shoot on the way to find some laundered drug money. I don't know what everyone's problem with Lambert is because he's been brilliant in every film I've seen him in. I hated what I saw of HIGHLANDER 3, but that was just because the film sucked, not because of Lambert.
Strangely, there's no love interest for our heroes. But that's no problem. Patrick Stewart pops up in what is basically an extended cameo as Leary's boss. He's okay, but I'm glad that Leary is the main villain of the piece.
GUNMEN does not disappoint as there is non-stop action and side-splitting comedy on offer. Enjoy.
