The actor portraying Shaun Rollins (Drag-On) is a rapper in DMX's rap group, Ruff Ryders. See more »


Although the film is set in Detroit, there are at least two instances of shots that show that Hamilton, Ontario is standing in for the Motor City. Early in the film, when Boyd and his partner are driving through "Detroit", there is a clearly visible marquee showing the logo of Skydome, a stadium in Toronto. Just as the movie ends, in the street scene where Boyd departs, the bar across the street has a sign with the letters "L.L.B.O.," for Liquor Licensing Board of Ontario, on it. During the chase Tim Horton's is visible, too (this particular store is located at the corner of Hughson and King Street East in Hamilton, Ontario). See more »


[first lines]
Vice President: Ladies and gentleman, it's a pleasure for me to be here on such a beautiful day, in the great city of Detroit. And I'd love to tell you all to sit back, relax, and enjoy yourselves. I'd love to, but unfortunately, I can't do that. There's a very serious issue that's spiraling out of control in this country. Illegal handguns ending up in the hands of our children. But instead of reading off a bunch of statistics that you might not already know that last year, more preschoolers died ...

A dance of violence...

'Exit Wounds' begins explosively with a terrorist raid on the Vice President, who is surrounded by an array of police escorts…

When renegade Detroit detective Orin Boyd (Seagal) takes on the whole Michigan militant group to save the man's life, in true action hero fashion, he is punished for his lack of respect for authority and procedure and sent to one of the toughest precincts in the city of Detroit, the 15th…

Once there, Seagal begins his usual habit of investigating things he's not assigned to, and quickly begins to suspect police corruption involving a major heroin operation…

Seagal plays a super tough cop who stays in trouble for complaints filed against him for excessive force…

He lands in a bad dangerous precinct and before you know it finds himself in nonstop furious action, trying to clean up the streets while taking on drug dealers and dirty cops pretty much all by himself…

Seagal is accompanied in this film by rapper DMX and a few other familiar faces including Anthony Anderson who is absolutely hilarious…
