This was the first film that the financing had been solely raised by Seagal/Nasso Productions after they split from Seagal's regular studio Warner Bros. Seagal/Nasso had gained funding for a handful of pics, most of which were to star Seagal, but the deal fell through when the relationship between Seagal and producing partner Julius Nasso collapsed. Other projects that were lined up for Seagal included 'Blood on the Moon" , where he was to play a man hunting the modern-day pirates who murdered his family, and "Black Top" where he was to play a high-end car thief.

Think drama, not action, and you won't be disappointed.
Basically, this is a very good film. It is very different from Seagal's other films though, which unfortunately may turn off some of his fans. Unlike some of the other films, this does not feel like a 'Seagal vehicle'. You get to see plenty of the other characters as well and all of Mr. Seagal's actions are not the same as we've seen before. The concept of him being an 'intellectual' in something other than bombs and other weaponry is a nice change. Although there are some unrealistic parts to the film (some more obvious than others), in general you can let them slide since the film is fun to watch.
It boils down to this: If you are looking for a classic Seagal action film, sorry, but you're going to be disappointed. Watch it anyway for the fun of it. If you're open to seeing Seagal without the action, it's well worth a look. I personally believe it is some of the best work he's done in quite a while.
