At the very beginning of the film Louis Burke enters a building and is slashed across the chest by "The Sandman", Louis Burke drops his gun which lands more than arms reach away, he then tries to reach for it, and cannot reach it. In the exact next shot, he has it in his hand and then holds it in front of him and then shoots "The Sandman". See more »

The part where The Sandman jumps out of the fires and continues fighting Burke until he gets his head gored on a pipe, is cut in the Norwegian VHS-version. See more »
Jean-Claude Van Damme is definitely a guilty pleasure for me. I don't go looking for fine acting and a great script. I want action and lots of it! Van Damme is a Canadian cop who goes undercover in LA to find out what is going on in a prison. He is made for this type of role, as he will have plenty of opportunity to display his considerable martial arts skills.
He isn't in prison long before he ticks of the Hispanic gangs and has to continually fight to stay alive.
Cynthia Gibb provides the essential "babe" in these flicks, even if she wasn't completely satisfying. And, when does a prisoner in the hole get out for conjugal rights? I always enjoy Robert Guillaume, and he didn't disappoint. Patrick Kilpatrick made a formidable foe and the final bout was well worth the time spent getting there.
A guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless.
