Will Jackson (Ray Parker Jnr.) acquired a pair of black shoes early on in the movie from Toni Briggs (Stacy Dash). A scene shortly afterwards when he enters Chet's home he is clearly wearing white trainers, yet scenes afterwards show him wearing the black shoes again. See more »
I was put on to this film by a friend of mine. It's a great flick with a good pace and interesting characters. Admitted some of the acting is a little shameful, but Jan Michael Vincent supplies us with a solid performance as the gruff ass kicking paraplegic with Knives in his wheel chair (how cool is that?). If you enjoyed the Warriors than this is definitely worth a watch.
But why is this not on DVD? Have searched high and low and can't find it anywhere.
Had to watch in poor VHS quality with German subs which was a little annoying, but did not detract from my enjoyment of the film.
