The gruesome murder of a Brooklyn Detective will turn the case into a personal vendetta when the deceased's best friend and fellow officer will unleash an all-out attack against a psychotic Mafia enforcer's brutal gang.
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

The part of Don Vittorio's heavyset bodyguard was played by professional wrestler Bialo the Giant who died almost half a year before the movie was released. See more »
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 »

Old TV versions of the movie had some alternate scenes and dialogue to replace ones that were too violent. Couple of extra scenes were also added in these versions; After killing woman in the car,Richie enters the shop to get a new shirt since his got blood on it. After getting a shirt,alarm goes off and he shoots it. This scene fixes continuity mistake from normal version in which Richie wears different shirt right after his first few scenes. Second additional scene is where Richie and his thugs break in Gino's wife house but she's not there. After some neighbors show up,Richie threatens them and leaves. See more »
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.
