Two days after the film opened, two men poured petrol over a ticket booth on the Brooklyn subway and set it alight in an incident similar to the one depicted in the film. The booth attendant was burned and later died of his injuries. Consequently New York subway workers called for a boycott of the film and the removal of all the posters from every station. Republican senator Bob Dole quickly came out in support of them. Columbia Pictures refused to bow to their demands. See more »

Reading the reviews below this seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of film. Regardless of whether you 'get' the story and the rapport between Harrelson and Snipes, you can't overlook that this is a well made film.
I've only seen it twice, once when it first came out on video, and again in the past week. I didn't think it was that remarkable when it first came out, but when I watched it the second time around, I found it highly entertaining and well executed. Granted, it's not the best film ever but I don't think it's deserving of a lot of the bad reviews given here.
As a film it succeeds, and if you've never seen it before, it's worth checking out.
