Trivia

Sony Pictures Entertainment picked up the US rights to the film after its completion, and considered giving the pic a theatrical release through their TriStar Pictures arm, but after the box-office failure of Double Team, Knock Off and Universal Soldier: The Return (all Sony releases) they ultimately sent the film straight to DVD.

Goofs

When Eddie's lying on the ground in the desert talking to Johnny, he inserts a clip into the .45 and cocks it. But when he stands up the clip is out and he inserts another one. See more »

Van Damme has a good rapport with the old folks.
9 February 2003 | by (columbus, oh) – See all my reviews

Wow, this movie is almost like a Road House for the late 90's. In other words, this is a good, no, GRRRREAT bad movie. Van Damme effectively plays another dumb guy / bad ass/ good guy. JCVD arrives in a small desert community populated almost entirely by abrasive creeps. Abrasive is putting it mildly, these guys snort crank/coke and verbally abuse old folks/hot waitresses around the clock. Of course Van Damme must help out the old folks and hot waitresses, probably because he's on some spiritual journey, or maybe he just wants to get laid, or maybe because he was planning suicide anyway. Whatever, the case may be, 2 old indians (one a motorcycle, the other an actual human being) help him get it done. The mullet adorned red necks and bikers which he awkwardly incapacitates are worth the price of admission alone. For my money this belongs amongst the best of Van Damme's entertainingly stupid body of work. Don't miss it!
