Trivia

Screenwriter Kevin Jarre was actually the one who wrote the first spec script for the movie sometime around 1989 or earlier, and producer Lawrence Gordon, who produced films like Predator (1987) and Die Hard (1988), bought it in January of 1990 but later his script was sold to other studios and by the time the movie was going to be made Jarre's original script was drastically changed to the point where only Lewis Colick, the writer who worked on re-writes, got the only writing and story credit. According to fans of Kevin Jarre who read his original script, not a single word from it stayed in the final film and his script was lot more darker and violent than the film. Same thing happened to Jarre's original scripts for films like Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) and The Devil's Own (1997). See more »

Goofs

The punch sounds during the boxing match on television were unrealistic for a boxing match and actually louder than the rest of the television. See more »

Derivative, but still enjoyable action yarn
30 June 1999 | by filmbuff-36See all my reviews

This film is awesome, and Emilio Estevez and Dennis Leary excel as the two lead roles in the film, but one can not help but notice how many times this movie has been done before. However, this is a much better entry in the "running and hiding to save your life" subgenre of thrillers. Basically, if you liked "Run", "The Warriors", or "The Running Man" you'll probably enjoy this one too.
