Did You Know?

Trivia

The movie was originally over 30 minutes longer, which included some more plot details and character development. Steven Seagal cut some of William Forsythe's scenes because he felt that Forsythe was upstaging him. Also, editor Michael Eliot re-edited the original cut of the movie. He did the same job with some other Warner Bros movies. Some scenes were deleted and some others were cut down for pacing. This is why there are two montage scenes with no dialogue in the finished film. Re-editing also caused some minor continuity mistakes. See more »

Goofs

When Gino enters Richie's hideout in the final conflict of the movie, he is carrying a single pump shotgun, which requires a pump per shot fired. Upon entering the kitchen he consecutively shoots three different people without pumping (loading a shell into the chamber) the shotgun once. See more »

Quotes

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?
Vinnie Madano: 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?
Vinnie Madano: Why?
Det. Gino Felino: 'Cause he's a chickenshit fuckin' pussy asshole.

Alternate Versions

The Australian free to air version was heavily edited for violence and coarse language when screened on Channel 9 in order to meet the standards for an M classification to be screened at 8:30pm. Some small scenes are even edited out all together as they were deemed too violent for television. Later broadcasts have relaxed their classification standards and the movie has been screened at a later time for a MA15+ or AV15+ classification. See more »

Actually acting this time
24 June 2006 | by winner55See all my reviews

This is Steven Seagal's best movie. In it, he actually wrestles with the character he plays, and comes up with a dramatic performance that, while no Brando, is still quite believable.

This is a very violent film. It is also a very troubling film. William Forsythe - who also turns in a better than average performance - plays a lower-rung mob boss who, strung out on crack and finding his girl-friend cheating on him, turns psychotic and suicidal. Not a good mix - he starts blowing people away just because they irritate him a little.

The film is also an attempt to deal with the continuing fragmentation of neighborhood communities that were once the heart and soul of larger cities. The community is preserved, but only tentatively - the seeds of its eventual collapse have clearly been planted. The extreme violence of the film thus becomes the manifestation of a unresolvable frustration with the tensions of a community falling apart.

All this adds up to a surprisingly complex Steven Seagal action film that will haunt you long after the closing credits.
