On 6 January 1998, 3 special-effect crew members were injured preparing a gas-based explosion in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Two of the crew were hospitalized with serious injuries and the third was treated and released. Improper safety measures that went against industry standards allowed for a premature explosion as the crew was setting up the shot. The battery used to trigger the explosion was stored inside a truck engine compartment rather than in the open. The battery was not disconnected when a cable touched the electrical contacts, causing detonation. Black Dog Productions was fined $16,800 by the state. These scenes that were filmed in downtown Wilmington were not used in the final release. See more »

This film offered excellent action sequences, that were well spaced throughout its length. The soundtrack too was great for lovers of american country music and filled in nicely between and during some action scenes. It is true to say that perhaps the acting took second place in this movie, but with this sort of action and pace it was hard for the actors to get a look in.
