The theatrical trailer shows two deleted scenes; Richie shooting inside the clothing store from which he took his new shirt (in the movie he wears one shirt in first few scenes then all of a sudden he wears different one) and a scene where the police captain tells Gino that body count is going up.

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 »
Tough, suspenseful ,action filled and super-violent cop thriller
This violent cop thriller begins when a Brooklyn police named Gino(Steven Seagal) is alerted when his best friend Bobby has been murdered by Richie(William Forsythe), a childhood ex-friend from old Brooklyn neighborhood. Gino tells his chief(Jerry Orbach) which he can encounter Richie and he set off in pursuit . Meanwhile,the Gino's spouse(Jo Champa) ask him the divorce . A doped Richie doesn't mind if he lives or dies and kills everybody around. The Italian mobsters are upset with him and they are looking for him, too. Richie is accompanied by his band(Jay Acanove, Robert Lasardo) taking the law on their own hands.
The film packs thrills, excessive violence, gory killing, profanity and bad language. N.Y. cop doesn't hesitate to utilize his martial arts skills as he fights violent drug dealing and battles corrupts killers and using his usual snapping wrists. This Seagal movie reveals the real-life Aikido master to be more of the Van Damme, Stallone style than the Stanislawski school of acting. Appear as secondary Jerry Orbach, recently deceased, and Shannon Whirry, a soft core star, who holds an alike countenance to Kelly Lebrock, Seagal's former wife. Furthermore, an uncredited, almost extras, John Leguizano, Raymond Cruz and Julie Strain. The Karate expert Seagal co-wrote the script, and co-produced along with Arnold Konpelson . Noisy musical score by means of synthesize, is in charge of David Marshall Frank. Director John Flynn who gave excellent performances to Tommy Lee Jones(Rolling Thunder), Robert Duval(Outfit), Jan Michael Vincent(Defiance), James Woods(Best seller), here gave credibility to Steven Seagal. The result is a strong outing for action enthusiastic.
