When at the gas station, Pappas is right behind the hijacked car and opens fire on the criminals through the back window. Even though he fires several times into the back of the vehicle at point-blank range, nobody is hit and there is no further damage inside the vehicle. See more »

The 15-rated UK cinema version was trimmed by 25 secs to obtain the lower rating by the BBFC. There were five cuts to remove bullet impacts, cuts to shots of a naked woman being fired at during the house raid and several cuts to remove aggressive strong language. The cuts were restored the following year when the distributors opted for an 18 certificate for the video release. This same cut was resubmitted in 2011 and received a 15 certificate. See more »
As a 90s kid I've always been aware of this flick but never watched, until it showed up on Hulu. Glad I finally watched because it was definitely entertaining. Loved seeing Patrick amd Keanu in one of their most famous roles. I enjoyed the play on undercover agent infiltrating a subculture not to often heard from. It's not Broadway nor is it MARVEL superheroes, but it's quality entertainment worth watching more than once.
On another note, it was AWESOME seeing the lead singer of one of my all time favorite bands in this; even though he does something quite hilarious!
