Trivia

Some of the background music during the chase seen immediately following the escape from the box car is very similar to the score in Predator (1987). Both films had the music composed by Alan Silvestri. Director Stephen Hopkins also directed Predator 2 (1990) and he wanted for score to sound like the one Silvestri composed for that film, which is why he rejected Silvestri's original electronic score.

four good buddies head out a for a night on the town and,
24 May 2009 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

take a wrong turn.just one wrong turn.and end up on the bad side of some not so savory characters.from there we get chase after chase as theses guys try to stay ahead of the bad guys and stay alive.this is a really exciting action packed movie.it had me on the edge of my seat a few times.and the acting,the acting was top notch.Jeremy Piven,Cuba Gooding Jr.Stephen Dorrf,Erik Schrody,Michael Wiseman are all really good.incidentally,Schrody is/was a member of once popular rap group House of Pain.he later released a solo album under the name Everlast,called Whitey Ford Sings the blues.anyway...everyone one i just mentioned did excellent work in this film.but for me,Emile Estevez and Peter Greene(Under Siege 2,The Usual Suspects,Permanent Midnight)were standouts.the movie itself is high octane excitement that doesn't let up until the end.it's a movie better watched late at night,with the lights off.for me,the verdict on Judgment Night is a 9/10
