In the scene in the "Jazz Cat" bar Steven Seagal is one of the members of the live band, wearing a cowboy hat, sunglasses and a fake beard, even though he also appears in the scene as his character Glass. See more »
In the opening section where Seagal's team abseil from the helicopter into the house, the helicopter changes. When we first see the team they are in a Bell206 (Long Ranger); this has skids and no stubbed wings. Yet when they abseil down the helicopter is now a Bell222 which has a retractable wheeled undercarriage (no skids) and stubbed wings. See more »

Despite it going straight to video, you might be thinking, "Well, it has Steven Seagal, so it at least must have a good amount of action." Think again. Seagal doesn't do anything until near the end, and his martial arts sequences are so rapidly-edited and close-up with the camera, someone with no martial arts sequences could have taken his place and had the same effect. In fact, most of the movie shows Seagal sitting down and/or shot from the chest up (probably to mask his weight gain in recent years.) He hardly does a thing! And there's hardly any other action in the rest of the movie - this is one BORING movie, and I couldn't wait for it to end.
If you do rent the DVD, you might find it interesting to hear the director/producer commentary (despite minutes on end going by without a comment). Not only did it confirm my suspicion that A LOT of stock footage was used, but that it was shot in a short time - just twelve days! Seagal was only used for six days, and Hopper did all his scenes in just one day!
