Trivia

Writer/Director Richard Rush and Cinergi head Andrew Vanja had a personal feud going on through the making of this film which stems from their riff from when Vanja was in charge of Carolco alongside Mario Kassar involving the film, Air America. Rush had made a deal with Vanja to Direct the film after adapting Christopher Robbins' novel and soon after, Vanja and Kassar took the film away from him and reworked the script as well as hired another Director to take over the film. Rush was completely ticked off. See more »

Alternate Versions

In one version, there is a scene where Casey leaves Capa a message on his answering machine, which is followed by the scene where Capa returns his phone call. Later, Capa climbs the building and discovers Casey's desecrated body. This scene has a different color-changing effect than what's shown in the US release. Immediately following that is a scene where Capa, Martinez & the Coronor discuss the possibility of it being a homosexual S&M killing and whether it could have been committed by a man or a woman.

Willis bares his wiener!
16 April 2004 | by moviecollectorSee all my reviews

Now, I know this is not even close to being Willis's best movie or role. I still thought this was a decent thriller. A good supporting cast with Brad Dourif(voice of Chucky, the best Horror icon ever!) & Lance Henriksen(who will star in just about anything these days) just to name a few.

I can understand why Jane March hasnt done much, she'll be type-cast as woman who takes clothes off alot. & yeah, this is as close to a porn flick as you can get, when it comes to big named actors in studio movies.

In my opinion, there are worse movies with Bruce Willis. This is worth seeing if you're in the mood for a adult-orientated suspense thriller...with quite alot of sex. & yes, ladies, You can see Bruce's winky in this too.
