Roy stays at a motel with a commercial propane (LPG) storage tank right next to his unit. This is a flagrant OSHA violation of section 1910.110, which says that large quantities must be stored at least 25 feet away from any building. See more »
The Skip I know doesn't have friends, just people he fucks over. What did he do to you? Why don't you go to the police?
I'm my own police.

UK cinema and video versions were cut by 6 secs by the BBFC to remove a possibly imitable technique showing a burgled car being started by using a penknife in the ignition. See more »
It has a perfect set-up for character establishment followed by a few surprises and then the chase is on between the young arrogant Skip,(Dorff), and the old but wiser Roy, (Keitel). You may forgive the film as it falls into "tough guy with heart and romance for weeping woman" scenario but that's part of the genre. The perfect hard hitting gritty drama for a late, late night viewing to keep one awake.
