Trivia:
Siu-Tung Ching supposedly filmed much of the action scenes without the involvement of Steven Seagal, opting to film Seagal's shots last, but conflict arose when Seagal insisted on filming his shots in a way that wouldn't accommodate the existing footage. Ching is said to have left the set, taking his stunt crew with him and welcoming Seagal to finish the scene by himself. This infuriated the producers, who convinced Seagal to go along with Ching's approach.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When fighting the "woman" in his friend's club, she reveals that "she" in fact a "he", but in a few shots that follow the revelation it is obviously either a woman or a man still wearing the padded breasts to appear female (this is very obvious when she grabs for the whip).See more »

Seagal should get in shape, 19 July 2005
Author: sveknu from Bergen, Norway

Even though Steven Seagal has made movies who are much worse than this, this is still far from being his best work. I wonder if the whole movie was made just for self-ironical reasons (remember, Seagal fortunately has a lot of self-irony). The main problem is that Seagal is too fat too be a real action-star right now. Some of the fights in this movie still are pretty cool, but there are just something that isn't there. Maybe it's because some of the fights are so overdone so that everyone know that it isn't Mr.Seagal doing most of it anyway? The worst part about the fighting is the roundhouse kicks. Even though they're rather cool, they're as far from the typical Seagal fighting style that it's possible to be. And you never see Steven's face when these are performed..........................

The story is standard, but that's totally OK. No one cares too much about that anyway in a movie like this. This is in fact one of Seagal's best movies after "Exit Wounds". That doesn't mean that this one is any good, because some of the others are pure garbage.
