Years ago, Jack Carter left his Seattle home to become a Las Vegas mob casino financial enforcer. He returns for the funeral of his brother Richard 'Richie' after a car crash during a storm, atypical of the careful house-father. Talking to the widow, daughter Doreen and enigmatic Geraldine, Jack suspects it was murder. Cliff Brumby, whose club Richie ran, is financially linked to porn and prostitution baron Cyrus Paice, who claims to be just a front-man for ITC tycoon Jeremy Kinnear. Someone hired goon Thorpey to make Jack return to Las Vegas. There Jack's partner Les Fletcher is restless, apparently about their boss Con McCarty whose wife had an affair with Jack. Someone breaks into Richie's home, looking for a crucial CD. Written by
For the flashback scenes that show Richie's murder, Stephen Kay wanted the film to look grainy and damaged, so he asked Deluxe, the film processor, to think outside the box. Happy to oblige, the techs at Deluxe tied the film to the back of a car and drove it around their parking lot - creating the scratched look. The experiment was short-lived when a Deluxe executive saw it, and ordered them to stop - fearing it would give the company a bad name. See more »
During the chase scene between Carter and the boys from Vegas the chase jumps from SoDo, to Yesler, to Queen Anne and various other locals from north to south Seattle with a mere turn. Also, beneath the viaduct is portrayed as an actual road in areas where it's only a parking lot. See more »

Sly looked cool and tough in the trailer and the poster and the cover of the video box. He's a little girlie man in the movie. This is one of the worst "action" movies ever made. The director didn't know how to move it along. It reminded me of a cheap movie called "the swap" which was called something else and had footage of a young Robert DeNiro in it. You know the movie I'm talking about, you saw it at Suncoast for $6.99 and almost bought it because it had a big picture of Robert DeNiro on it. THAT movie is better than this.
Really, I'm not kidding. DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE.
