Gino's handgun is a customized Colt Combat Elite. Likely built on a Para-Ordinance frame. Seagal was fastidious about combat handguns and by both the number of shots fired and the size and weight of the magazines he replaces, it's pretty obvious it's a high capacity .45 See more »
When Richie and his cadre escape Gino, he is looking all around in the passenger-side seat while saying, "Let's take him out for some pork chops." But it is not in sync with how his mouth is moving. 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 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!
