Trivia

This project took over 10 years to get produced. It had been optioned by three studios and had been re-written at least five times to cater to the whims of either a studio or a star. Originally set in New York, it was later changed to Los Angeles then to Prague and finally Spokane, Washington. The final "change" was the elimination of any and all references to Israel and the removal of the Hasidim from the script of a movie about diamonds and centered in the diamond district of a major American city. The producer (an Israeli) said he could not sell the film to "certain territories" if these elements remained in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Daniel Bernhardt and Curt Lowens' characters speak German, a few minor words and phrases are inaccurately translated in the subtitles: "Jude", meaning "Jew", became "fool", and "auf nimmer wiedersehn" ("forever good-bye") became "I'll see you in hell", etc. See more »

Possibly Chuck's Worst Movie
1 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I see Chuck Norris movies as bad as The Cutter, it really makes me wonder how he got all the internet fandom that he has today. Now don't get me wrong I like Norris and i'm a huge action movie fan. I decided to check this one out since it was on Netflix streaming. One of the first things that caught my attention is that this wasn't one of Chuck's classic action movies. This one was released in 2005 back when Chuck was 65 so I figured that it wouldn't be up to par with his classic films, but would make for a fun viewing. First off, it looks as if no money went into this movie. Considering this is a straight to DVD movie, i'm guessing most of the money went to Chuck. The acting is also horrible in this film. You know you've got a problem when Norris is the best actor in your movie. However, you don't go into a Chuck Norris movie looking for anything but some good acting. That's where The Cutter once again fails. The action in this movie is some of the worst i've seen in a long time. The editing is so awful that I would have to call it some of the worst editing i've ever seen in a film. It's done so poorly it takes you out of the action and just makes you look for all the mistakes that were done in the editing. I like Norris and it's a shame to see him in such an awful piece of trash. Even if you are a fan this is one to avoid!
