The widescreen DVD release from Universal substitutes two songs during the disco shootout. The first is "Brown Sugar" by the Rolling Stones and the second is 'I'm A Man' by Keith Emerson. Earlier VHS releases from Universal Home Video, as well as some TV versions, also contained the altered songs. The fullscreen DVD release by GoodTimes Entertainment contains the restored songs.

This Sylvester Stallone movie may be his best because, unlike most of his more famous roles over the years, this is very believable. He isn't Rambo or Rocky...just a tough New York City cop.
Stallone and partner Billy Dee Williams team up in an attempt to stop a terrifying international terrorist (Rutger Hauer) before he kills more people. All three of those actors are riveting in this rough, gritty film.
I thought so much of this movie that I bought it twice. The first DVD that came out was fullscreen, no stereo and grainy. Later, they issued a better widescreen print and it was worth upgrading. The movie is a top-notch thriller start-to-finish and Hauer makes an outstanding villain.
It might be a cliché but this film always "kept m on the edge of my seat. "
