The closing credits are shown over still-photos from the film. A couple of the photos are from scenes not included in the film, or alternate takes of scenes used in the film. Also, three brief scenes filmed for the movie but not included in the final cut are shown. The credits end with Vince Latello's smiling mugshot from the film. See more »
This was an OK movie. John Stockwell and Fisher Stevens were a good team. Latello's (Stevens) wise-cracks are what made this movie enjoyable for me! The story is slow at times, but the action picks up and so does the movie. I recommend this for a Saturday afternoon when you have nothing to watch.
All in all, a enjoyable film.
