Although passed uncut for UK cinema early video versions were cut by 54 secs by the BBFC with edits to a man being thrown through a car window during the opening scene, a hand being impaled with a cleaver, a cue ball being wrapped in a handkerchief during the pool hall fight, a closeup of a shooting, and wrist snaps and blows with a rolling pin during the final fight between Gino and Richie. When it was shown on Sky's movie channels, these scenes were all present, but other violent footage had been trimmed. The version shown on network TV in the UK (Channel 5) also had some of the missing material, but again, at the expense of other edits. The cuts were fully restored in the 1999 widescreen DVD release.

This is one of those first few movies which represent Seagal's best. The story moves by quickly, the action never stops, and the quality is excellent.
Seagal's bombastic aikido style is a sure show-stopper. The action is so captivating that it almost renders the story unnecessary. The story consists of Seagal searching out the murderer of a friend. There are other elements to the plot, but that is the gist. It would do no good to attempt to detail the plot however, as the story is lost in a flurry of fists and knees.
If you are a fan of Seagal's bone-crunching, show-stopping, hard-hitting martial arts style, you will simply love this one.
Although this is quite pretentious and philosophically preachy, this has to be one of my absolute favorites of his older movies.
I love it!
