Albert Pyun hates this film and has publicly apologized for it several times. He says Nu Image suddenly cut of his funds half way through shooting before taking it from him and splicing it with archive footage before releasing it. Pyun has since made an unofficial release of his drastically different director's cut.
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.
Albert Pyun originally recorded a commentary track for the DVD, in it he described how Nu Image had taken the film from him and edited into the "Steven Seagal action film" they wanted. Because of the heavy criticism towards them Nu Image and Artisan Entertainment edited and watered down his commentary.
