Brooklyn cop Gino Felino is about to go outside and play catch with his son Tony when he receives a phone call alerting him that his best friend Bobby Lupo has been shot dead in broad daylight on 18th Avenue in front of his wife Laurie Lupo and his two kids by drug kingpin Richie Madano, who has been Gino and Bobby's enemy since childhood. As Gino is hunting Madano down, Gino discovers the motive behind Bobby's murder. This is when Gino's hunt for Madano leads to the showdown of a lifetime.Written by

Whilst on the production set, Steven Seagal claimed that due to his Aikido training, he was 'immune' to being choked unconscious. It has been alleged that at some point Gene LeBell (who was a stunt coordinator for the movie) heard about the claim, and gave Seagal the opportunity to prove it. LeBell is said to have placed his arms around Seagal's neck, and once Seagal said "go", proceeded to choke him unconscious. After refusing to comment for many years, LeBell confirmed the story in 2012 and said that after Seagal fell unconscious, he proceeded to defecate and urinate himself. Whenever Seagal has been asked about the incident, he has constantly denied the allegations. See more »
When Gino encounters Richie for the final fight, we see Richie coming out of the bathroom, holding a gun on his head. The white cup in front of the lamp is gone, but was visible in the previous shot. See more »
Det. Gino Felino:
Come over here, Vinnie. Listen, you shouldn't talk to me that way. You know why? 'Cause like, you and I, we don't know each other so good. You were still suckin' your thumb when your brother was around town suckin' dicks. But just the same, you shouldn't talk so tough, all right?
If my brother was here, you wouldn't talk shit like that.
Det. Gino Felino:
Yeah, but he's not here. And you know why he's not here?
Det. Gino Felino:
'Cause he's a chickenshit fuckin' pussy asshole.

The Norwegian VHS version had several scenes trimmed down for violence. These scenes are:
1. The pimp beating the hooker is trimmed down.
2. Richie shooting Bobby one more time after he put the card on his chest.
3. Richie shooting a woman, the shot where he drags here out of the car.
4. The meat clever in the hand was completely removed.
5. The scene when Gino shoots of Bobby Arms leg was also completely removed.
6. The whole sequence when Gino stabs a corkscrew in Richie's head was also removed.
7. The extra shot of Richie's body with the corkscrew in the head.
All these scenes was later restored in the Region 2 DVD.
This film is the ultimate violence film. i'm not going to give any specific examples but the fight scenes are so brutal is hilarious. its not like one of those japanese ninja violence films, or evil dead type violence. this is like real-life violence. seagal plays gion fellino, a tough brooklyn cop, who is as the title suggests, out for justice. after the start seagal goes round giving a good hiding to anyone who so much as looks at him funny. the scenes in the butcher shop, the pool hall and the final fight are the best examples of the violence in this film, however they are scattered all over the place. its about 2 minutes into the film before the first person gets a severe decking from seagal. and its fairly brutal. the butcher shop is a good example of seagals martial arts abilities, but more of the fact that gino is a total bad-ass. the pool hall is the macho scene and is a ripper. no-one escapes a good decking. and the final fight is pretty much the harshest beating i've seen in any film. well apart from when like old people get battered but you'll see what i mean if you watch it. make sure to get it on dvd too. its really badly cut on vhs. overall, this film is an all time ripsnorter and probably my favourite seagal film, and in my top ten films of all time.
