Almost all of the scenes that are depicted in the "city" are filmed within a two block area in downtown Wenatchee, Washington. The area filmed was in a two block perimeter of Mission, Orondo, Palouse and Columbia streets with the majority of the film scenes in the alley way behind the Liberty Theater off of Mission St. This area also includes the infamous Bruce Hotel which is still there today; however it has not been a hotel since the early 2000 and is now Bruce Transitional Housing for the homeless.

The only thing I miss up here is a sport page. I'm so used getting up, having my morning coffee and opening up the sport page.
I don't read newspapers anymore. They're like a mirror of the world's ugliness. I like beautiful things.

Directed by Ernest Dickerson (Bones, Bulletproof, Tales from the Crypt Presents:Demon Knight) made an action-packed thriller. This has good performances by the cast with some memorable sequences. This slightly underrated film was an box office disappointment and it was similar theme with John Woo's "Hard Target". Which it was release a year before.
DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer (also in Pan & Scan) and an fine-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD also includes the Original Theatrical Trailer and Cast & Crew information. This is a must for action-fans. They will find plenty to enjoy in this thriller. Written by Eric Bernt (The Hitcher "2007", Romeo Must Die, Virtuosity). (****/*****).
