The Australian theatrical release of the film was heavily cut to receive an M rating. Gone were the head-shots to Vietnamese villagers, Scott getting the knife in the gut by Luc, the diner fight was heavily trimmed, a scientist getting impaled on a needle, the supermarket shootout and Dolph's demise on the farm machinery. All of these cuts were restored for an R rated VHS release and later, an MA15+ rated DVD/Bluray release. See more »
The premise and the cast outweigh the storyline and that's the real shame about this film. You have two big names in the action scene of the 90s and an up and coming mega director. The real issue with the film is the lack of a coherent explanation for the storyline. The film has a large action scope and that car chase scene later in the film looks incredible on 4k. There was a better film to made here and it's a shame they didn't exploit the use of the two leads. Van Damme is very quiet and lacks the usual charisma that comes with his films. Let's be honest, the two leads don't have strong acting traits, but they do maintain presence. The film could've been different and grittier, but something was not right in the pre-production and production of this film.
