Did You Know?

Trivia

The movie had a shooting schedule of 11 days - a fact which director Stephen Smoke attempted to hide from Dennis Farina, fearing that someone used to upscale productions like him would not want to work on such a small-scale picture. Ironically, Farina later admitted to Michael Worth how impressed he was at the ability of filmmakers like Smoke to film an entire movie in less than two weeks. See more »

Goofs

Mike Worth's girlfriend (the blind lady) is showering and afterwards walks through the house naked. This is filmed from the back. A kidnapper is watching her silently. Just as she is to put on her robe, she turns a little and she can be seen wearing breast covers. See more »

Quotes

Tony: She is quite a woman. How come you didn't introduce her to me before?
Brian: Because she is quite a woman!

OKAY FOR A TIME WASTER
23 June 2018 | by MBaySee all my reviews

I like when you can find 'crime' movies that aren't full of filler sex scenes and writer's block profanity. (Gee, what should I write? I know, the guy is angry he should say F*k before and after every noun)

Anyhoo, that being said, the only thing that was really hard to watch were the fight scenes. The cop who was supposedly the best of the best, going against street best - most lackluster ring dancing I've seen in a long time. How many times would a serious fighter swing his leg OVER his opponents head and have it returned in like. Or stand utterly still waiting to be hit?

It only bothered me because a great deal of the dialogue was about how amazing this fighter was, and how he earned street cred by being so AWESOME. Ah well, it's a Saturday and it was good pablum for the time.
