Jimmy Kilmartin's an ex-con who's trying to go straight. But he can't say no to a quick driving job because his so called friend's life is threatened. The job is for Little Junior Brown, a violent and powerful villain. When things go wrong, Jimmy is left to do the time, and his whole life is turned upside-down, but if that wasn't enough, the cops won't leave Jimmy alone when he gets out... They want 'Little Junior'Written by

Constantine Makris one of the camera operators on the film was a regular cinematographer and director for the hit TV series "Law & Order" and it's eventual spin offs later on. He was hired mainly for his knowledge of the extensive New York locations used in the film. See more »
When we first see the Red Explorer - before Little Junior gives it to Jimmy - it has no license plate on the front. But when Jimmy drives it home it DOES have a license plate in the front. See more »
The FX cable TV version that aired in the late '90s/early 2000s did the usual violence and language edits and most notably during the strip club scenes adds black blurs (ex: when Nicolas Cage is talking to a few people, the topless dancer has a digitally added black dress so that the scene is safe to air).

Deserves Better Than 5.8 IMDb Average Vote
I liked this movie and I am quite surprised by the low IMDb user voting for this film. It is certainly not Academy Award material. But the story, character development, and the acting performances are really above average. I am not a big fan of television dramas. I have never seen a single episode of CSI. I thought NYPD Blue was very overrated, except for Dennis Franz. However, I think that David Caruso is a much better movie actor than he gets credit for. This one is definitely worth seeing. It is not a stupid high-action movie like Armageddon. However, it does have some very intense and well staged scenes that will keep action movie fans happy.
