The movie was filmed in nine weeks, between April 20 and June 18, 1992, but it wasn't released until February 4, 1994, more than a year and a half after it was finished. Besides releasing all of the later DVD versions of the movie in cropped 1.33:1 pan and scan format, instead of 2.35:1 widescreen, in which the movie was originally filmed, Miramax and Dimension Films also went and cut it down by five minutes before it was released theatrically on only eight hundred screens. This movie was originally much harder, and featured greater violence and language, and most of the cuts were made in those scenes, because studios wanted to make it safer and more appealing to the general moviegoing audience. The uncut version of the movie was never released. See more »

I want you to press the ignition button. You got me?
Ignition. Yeah. Shit. He can't read. I tell you what you do. Hold up that first finger. Tell me what you see.
No, it looks like an "I." That's the first letter in "ignition."

A longer 97 minute version does exist and was submitted to the OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) in Australia. While this version was rated M, it was noted that it contained "High level coarse language, Violence, Medium level sex scene". Months later, a second version was submitted with a running time of 94 minutes and carried the same M rating, but with "Medium level violence, Coarse language, Sex scene" as the advice. It is believed that the longer 97 minute version was never officially released anywhere. See more »
Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles star in this run of the mill action tale of a drug dealers lost millions stowed away on a boat. This leads to the unlikely teaming of a small time crook and an undercover DEA Agent in a race against the sadistic bad guy Dennis Leary.
Van Peebles and Lambert work pretty well as a double act and Leary is over the top but acceptable as the bad guy, but the problem with this movie is that its so predictable. Every action cliché is there and it comes across as an over violent mix of a spaghetti western and romancing the stone. Patrick Stewart pops up as a gangster overlord but his character seems pointless more of a time filler than a significant plot element.
Basically its an OK but nothing special piece of action cinema, the same thing you've seen done better 100 times before 5/10.
