Trivia

The original script, written by star Robert Chapin, was much darker than the final product in which Alex, the main character, was suckered so deeply into the world of drugs, money, women and bloodsport that by the time he was reunited with Elena, he doesn't even recognize her. When MCA/Universal picked it up for home video distribution, it deemed the original script too dark and hired another writer to revise it to make it more lighthearted. See more »

Goofs

In the first fights without swords, a guy dodges an attack by back-flipping and landing on his belly. After this he gets up and does a double front kick, Again he falls, this time on his back. During both falls a crash mat can be seen. See more »

Robert Chapin = talented swordsman
15 November 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

While the only two known names in this film are Joe Don Baker and Carol Alt, it certainly is not lacking in talent. Robert Chapin and Jim Perri and fabulous together. Their swordfight in the ring is athletic, funny, difficult, excellent! The end left the door wide open for a sequel. Well, Bob, we're waiting...
